$30.00
For centuries, the hawza system of seminary education has produced outstanding scholars and fostered the development of Islamic studies throughout the Shi‘i world. The present book discusses the hawza from its formative period in the second Islamic century until the modern day. In addition to discussing the major hawza centres of Qum and Najaf, it also discusses the history and development of hawzas in Rayy, Baghdad, Hilla, Jabal ‘Amil, Isfahan, Tehran, and Mashhad. Academic concerns – such as texts, curricula, and pedagogical methodologies – are discussed along with the sociopolitical conditions that affected the hawzas.
