Baidhaq Al-, Abu Bakr ibn Ali Al Snahaji

(12th century)
   He was the chronicler of the Almohad period and one of the devoted followers of the Mahdi Ibn Tumart and his successor, `Abd al Mu'min. At the Almohad court, he documented the events of the day. However, not enough information is available about his life and works; only a 36-page manuscript in the Escurial Library (Madrid) has survived, published by E. Levi Provençal in "Documents inédits d'histoire almohade" (Paris, 1928).
