Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Ẓāhirīs: Their Doctrine and their History: A Contribution to the History of Islamic Theology contains the table of contents, foreword, preface, and an introduction to the English translation of Ignaz Goldziher's monograph on the Ẓāhirī. The Ẓāhirīs is of lasting value for the history of orientalist scholarship, for the study of Islamic law and, of course, the study of the literalist school, as it constitutes the starting point for much subsequent research on this dissident madhhab. The past decades have witnessed a boom of publications on different aspects of Ẓāhirī legal thought, especially that of Ibn Ḥazm, both in the Muslim world and in the West, and many of them were inspired by Goldziher's book.

Keywords: Ẓāhirī; Ibn Ḥazm; Ignaz Goldziher; Islamic theology
