Visions of Sharia by Dr Ali Reza Bhojani


In Visions of Shari’a Bhojani, De Rooij and Bohlander present the first broad examination of ways in which legal theory (usul al-fiqh) within Twelver Shi’i thought continues to be a forum for vibrant debates regarding the assumptions, epistemology and hermeneutics of Shari’a in contemporary Shi’i thought. Bringing together authoritative voices and emerging scholars, from both ‘traditional’ seminaries and ‘Western’ academies, the distinct critical insider and emic accounts provided develop a novel avenue in Islamic legal studies. Contextualised through reference to the history of Shi’i legal theory as well as contemporary juristic practice and socio-political considerations, the volume demonstrates how one of the most intellectually vibrant and developed discourses of Islamic thought continues to be a key forum for exploring visions of Shari’a.
