Chapter Summary

This appendix section presents a list of Akhbārī Scholars names from Astarābādi to the end of the thirteenth century ah that occur in the book Scripturalist Islam: The History and Doctrines of the Akhbārī Shiī'ī School. The Akhbārī School dominated the intellectual landscape of Imāmī Shiī'īsm between the Seventeenth and early Nineteenth Centuries. Its principal doctrines involved a reliance on scripture and a rejection of the rational exegetical techniques which had become orthodox doctrine in Imāmī theology and law. However, the Akhbārīs were not simple literalists, as they are at times portrayed in secondary literature. The book is the first in-depth study of the intellectual development and historical influence of the Akhbārī School.

Keywords: Akhbārī Shiī'ī School; Astarābādi; Imāmī theology
