A HISTORY OF SHI'I ISLAM (hb) 2013
Author: DAFTARY
ISBN: 9781780768410
Year: 2013
Publisher: VIVA BOOKS PRIVATE LIMITED
Category: HISTORY
Edition: 1
Format: Hard Cover
Language: English
Pages: 288
 ABOUT THE TITLE
Shi?i Muslims have played a crucial role, proportionally greater than their relative size, in furthering the civilizational achievements of Islam. Indeed, the Shi?i scholars and literati of various branches and regions, including scientists, philosophers, theologians, jurists and poets, have made seminal contributions to Islamic thought and culture. There have also been numerous Shi?i dynasties, families or individual rulers who patronized scholars, poets and artists as well as various institutions of learning in Islam. In spite of its significance, however, Shi?i Islam has received little scholarly attention in the West, and when it has been discussed, whether in general or in terms of some of its subdivisions, it has normally been treated marginally as a 'sect' or a 'heterodoxy'.
Although some progress has been made in certain areas of Shi?i studies in recent decades, it is a fact that Shi?i communities of all traditions continue to be variously misunderstood and misrepresented, not only by the Sunni Muslims but by non-Muslims as well. The present book draws on the scattered findings of modern scholarship in the field, attempting to explain the formative era of Shi?i Islam, when a multitude of Muslim groups and schools of thought were elaborating their doctrinal positions. Subsequent chapters are devoted to the history of the Ithna?asharis, or Twelvers, the Ismailis, the Zaydis and the Nusayris (now more commonly known in Syria as the ?Alawis), the four communities that account for almost the entirety of the Shi?i Muslim population of the world (ca. 200 million). The result is a comprehensive survey of Shi?i Islam that will serve as an accessible work of reference for academics in both Islamic and Middle Eastern studies, as well as the broader field of the History of Religions, and also more general, non-specialist readers.
