`Abd al-Rahman ibn Jawzi (q0.1) is `Abd al-Rahman ibn `Ali ibn Muhammad al-Jawzi, born in Baghdad in 508/1114. A Hanbali Imam and one of the greatest scholars of his age in history and hadith, he authored nearly three hundred works in the sciences of hadith, Arabic grammar, Koranic exegesis, history, Sufism, physiognomy, medicine, and biographies of famous Muslims. He is sometimes confused with Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya, whom he was not related to, though the former's name (lit. "son of the superintendent of the Jawziyya") was derived from the name of the Jawziyya School founded by a grandson of Ibn al-Jawzi in Damascus where Ibn Qayyim's father worked. Ibn al-Jawzi died in Baghdad in 597/1201 (ibid., 3.316, and Sheikh Shu`ayb Arna'ut).
