Thirty years after the fall of Soviet power, we are beginning to understand that the experience of Muslims in the USSR continued patterns of adaptation and negotiation known from Muslim history in the lands that became the Soviet Union, and in other regions as well; we can also now understand that the long history of Muslims situating religious authority locally, in the various regions that came under Soviet rule, in fact continued through the Soviet era into post-Soviet times.
The present volume is intended to historicize the question of religious authority in Muslim Central Eurasia, through historical and anthropological case studies about the exercise, negotiation, or institutionalization of authority, from the nineteenth to the early twenty-first century; it thus seeks to frame Islamic religious history in the areas shaped by Russian and Soviet rule in terms of issues relevant to Muslims themselves, as Muslims, rather than solely in terms of questions of colonial rule.

In Praise of the Few: Studies in Shiʿi Thought and History is a selection of Etan Kohlberg’s research on Shiʿi Islam over a period of fifty years. It includes previously published articles, revised dissertation chapters, and a full bibliography of the author’s work. Divided into two parts, the collection begins with chapters from Kohlberg’s Oxford doctoral dissertation (1971) and related articles that investigate Sunni and Shiʿi views on the Prophet’s Companions and debates concerning the extent of their authority as sources of religious knowledge. Part Two traces the doctrinal and historical developments pertaining to various dimensions of Imāmī Shiʿi intellectual tradition such as theology, hadith, law, jurisprudence, and exegesis.

Résumé

Dans le Coran tel qu’on le connaît aujourd’hui, il n’est pas fait mention explicite de quelques doctrines fondamentales du shiʿisme. Cela peut expliquer le rôle central joué non seulement par l’exégèse et la tradition shiʿites, mais aussi par d’autres textes sacrés. Il s’agit ou bien de textes révélés aux prophètes pré-islamiques, et étant arrivés aux Imāms par Muḥammad, ou bien de textes révélés seulement au Prophète et aux membres de sa famille. Leur fonction principale est bien sûr de souligner les connaissances illimitées des Imāms, mais aussi de montrer l’existence de différentes Écritures, d’une stature proche de celle du Coran, et soutenant les doctrines shiʿites. Ces textes se trouvent à présent en possession de l’Imām caché; au moment de sa réapparition comme mahdī, ils seront révélés à tous et, avec les autres Écritures, constitueront la preuve ultime de la validité de la croyance shiʿite.
