Islamic Studies, Jewish Studies and the study of Eastern Christianity. It encourages discussion among representatives of these and related disciplines, with a view to promoting a new understanding of intellectual history in all its facets throughout the Islamicate World, from its emergence until modern times and from different methodological perspectives. The Intellectual History of the Islamicate World covers such themes as philosophy, theology, exegesis, law and legal methodology, sciences and medicine.
The Intellectual History of the Islamicate World is double blind peer-reviewed. From 2017 onwards it will publish three issues per year. In addition to predefined theme volumes, the journal accepts submissions relevant to its overall concerns but not bound to a specific theme. Moreover, from 2017 there will be a review section. All submissions and queries should be addressed to the editor-in-chief at email@example.com. Further details can be found on the journal’s website: www.brill.com/ihiw.
