Abstract:

The religious essay of Hampt B opposes archaism and modernity, rationality and spirituality, tolerance and dogma. His literary topoi, his formulas, are part of the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim monotheistic tradition. This article studies three aspects of his work: first, the way knowledge is transmitted from master to disciple; second, the discourse linked to very old generic models such as exegetic commentary or the dissertation; and finally the characteristics of the knowledge transmitted: revelation through numerology; the sacred nature of memory, of the word, and of numbers; the ways, both mystic and ascetic, of attaining knowledge.

Keywords: Ahmadou Hampt B; Soufisme; essai; hagiographie; sotrisme; sources; tradition; transmission
