    literate (adj.)

    "educated, instructed, having knowledge of letters," early 15c., from Latin literatus/litteratus "educated, learned, who knows the letters;" formed in imitation of Greek grammatikos from Latin littera/litera "alphabetic letter" (see letter (n.1)). By late 18c. especially "acquainted with literature." As a noun, "one who can read and write," 1894.

    literati (n.)

    "men and women of letters; the learned class as a whole," 1620s, noun use of Latin literati/litterati, plural of literatus/litteratus "educated, learned" (see literate). The proper singular would be literatus (fem. literata), though Italian literato sometimes is used in English.

    Literati:

    Your definition is like mine and doesnt have the extra sense of "insider". Literati is to neutral for what we have here: the promotors of early islam.

    It is perfectly adapted. The distinction you make does not exist in any scholarship literature, nor in contemporary texts; there's no insiders or outsiders as pseudepigraphy is the general ways of writing in Antiquity.

    The council of Trullo (692) forbids clerics or monks to participate  in secret societies.
    See canon 43 https://goodguyswearblack.org/2013/04/12/on-clergy-secret-societies/

    If it needed to be forbidden, it was a problem or at least existed.

    Do these clerics or monks  in secret societies have a name as such? Nope.  Are they, one way or another, literati? For the most part, yes.

    Yap... they did and during those times in 6th and 7th centuries .. many of the followers of these leading preachers  used a tag to their original name   and that tag was "Muhammad"..  well some of them also  acted as  literati Muhammads and warrior Muhammads  and song sonnet singing Muhammads...

    Simon Brelaud

    Abstract - As the evangelization of nomadic populations appears to have occurred later than the history of the East Syrians, we assume that it goes hand in hand with the process of the constitution of the Church of the East. Looking closer, we can find quite early signs of Christianity among the Arabs regarding the chronology of Christianity in Sasanian Empire. The topic raises three main questions: the connections of the Arab tribes and their circulations during Late Antiquity, the Christianization of the nomadic populations and the link between Christianity and loyalty to the Roman Empire which is a sore point in the Persian Empire. Al-Ḥīra (Ḥirta in Syriac) was the capital of an ally and a principality independent from the Persians, known as the “Laḫmid” kingdom: regarding the Ecclesiastical hierarchy, it was part of the Church of the East. It was the main target of an original policy of the patriarch of the Church of Persia (called catholicos since the 5th century) aimed at the nomadic populations at the edge of the Empire extending to al-Anbar and the Jazīra.

    and Yes Arab Christians and Arab Jews ((I am actually not sure who Arabs were and  how to  define the boundaries   at that time ))  moved in to Islam during early Islamic period  and those who converted in to Islam wrote stories and blamed idolaters Christians and Jews that did not convert

    Arab Jews are in Yemen, nowhere else... at that time! They are not ethnic Jews for the most part, but they were Jews and went to Jerusalem to be buried. Interestingly Rabbanites scriptures never spoke about them... at that time!

    what is that thing ?  Jewish history of 101  from Altara??  or are you writing  cryptic post??  or are you starting "history of Jews" from 10th century ??

     i  am  sure you know.,  that word  Rabbanites is a general term  that is used in Jewish and Islamic sources from approximately the tenth century..

    Do you  mean to say there were no Jewish sects  in the lands that you  see in green color  specially around  middle east before 6th  century  except in the present Yemen??



    there were only in Yemen at that time??      and what time was that?  what year??Arab Jews are WERE in Yemen and  nowhere else..??. at that time!??

    well  then we need to learn about Moroccan Jews,,,  Egyptian Jews. Persian Jews,, Jews jews...Yemen Jews.. Arabian Jews..Ukraine Jews  ..  Muslim Jews..  Roman Jews .. Chrisian Jews.. Pagan Jews..and what not .     Well Fall of Jewish Jews and rise of Muslim Jews...

    Does this have implications for the so-called Jews of Madinah?

      good question Mahgraye  .. corner the cat...lol...  well there was NO Madinah "At  That Time"

    Nope, as the Jews  (as such or in the Yemeni case in the south of the peninsula) were everywhere in the Orient. Regarding the narrative, the presence of Jews (ethnic or not) in Yathrib seems to me dubious. That the Rabbanites did not know the Yemeni is understandable, but those of Yathrib are nearest from where they are installed.
    On the other hand, its seems to me also dubious that the Yemeni Jews would have installed Jews in Yathrib. For what purpose? Is Yathrib (at that time) is a key place of commerce for Yemeni? Whereas one knows that the naval commerce has the monopoly because it is very less expansive than caravans.  Yemeni lack harbours? Really?...

    I thought there are Jewish inscriptions in Hegra. Inscriptions in Aramaic/Nabatean naming a person Jewish. But that seems to be the southern limit.

    ....Gobillot is a fool who should write children's books....

      that is fine with me ..

    Now in my bread and butter career  where I  published more than 100 peer reviewed publications and reviewed many many  publications .((.still do))   I have seen plenty of intelligent folks writing STUPID PUBLICATIONS...   As far as that retired professor  Gobillot  is concerned ;; I HAVE NOT READ  ALL OF HER WORK and i only scanned through  the publications from Altara post  through translator.. Please read them ..

    Those two papers  are not exploring the facts of history but exploring stories of faith from faith heads  and converting them as real historical facts  .. So yes such stories are better for Children book or Harry Potter movies...
