Abstract

This article explores the sectarian issue in the Syrian context, analyzing different theoretical perspectives from which we can examine sects and sectarianism as social and political phenomena. Through this analysis we draw the historical frame in which sectarianism originated, giving an overview of the features which define the strict relation between sectarianism and the modern political system of the national State. Furthermore, this article examines the historical development of sectarianism in the Syrian State and the role the sectarian ties assumed inside the authoritarian political system created by the Syrian president Ḥāfiẓ al-Asad.
