Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of names, terms and concepts relevant to the discussion on the history and doctrine of the Ẓāhirī Madhhab (3rd/9th-10th/16th Century). The entries are arranged in alphabetical order. By examining the meaning of 'ẓāhir' and modern scholarship on 'literalism', the author challenges the view that Ẓāhirism was literalist, proposing 'textualism' as an accurate reflection of its premises, methodology, and goals as a hermeneutical and legal theory.

Keywords: Ẓāhirism; Islamic law; literalism; textualism
