The rise of Sultan Selim III in 1789 marks the beginning of a period in the Ottoman history in which the tendency towards sunni-orthodox Islam strengthens together with the intention to bring regeneration into the Muslim community and restore power to the state. Along with that, Istanbul witnesses a rise in the number of sufi lodges, a movement of building new religious places and restoration and redecoration of old ones as well as an increase in the number of medresses and their students. This book focuses on an important section between 1826 and 1876 of this period to investigate the role of sunni-orthodox Islam in the 19th century climate of reformations in the Ottoman Empire. Islamic orders, Naqshbendi-Khalidi suborder in particular, important religious and political figures and important political events of the time are discussed in detail to present a picture of the era.

Language and Heresy in Ismaili Thought

The Kitab al-Zina of Abu Hatim al-Razi
ISBN: 978-1-59333-781-0
The heretofore unpublished Kitab al-Zina, virtually unknown in western scholarship, is a glossary of important Islamic terms by the 9th/10th-century Ismaili polymath Abu Hatim al-Razi. Some lament that Razi’s historical approach to etymology failed to catch on and that had it done so, the face of Arabic dictionary writing might have been altered for the better. His organization of material was uniquely Ismaili as he took pains to synthesize contradictory information into a harmonious whole. This study examines sections of Razi’s work with a view towards his contributions to the field of grammar and linguistics.

Victorian Images of Islam

ISBN: 978-1-60724-673-2
Victorian perceptions of Islam were not monochrome; some saw beyond stereotypical images, others reproduced them. In this study, the accounts of six Victorians outline the contrast of the two perceptions. It suggests that presuppositions, not encounters per se, determine how we see cultural and religious others.
