This essay presents a survey of legal ḥawāshī (glosses) produced by Shāfiʿī jurists between the fifteenth and twentieth centuries. I outline the particular features of the legal ḥāshiya, the kind of legal reasoning that it promoted, and the structure of scholastic authority within the legal school that it embodied. I argue that the rise and decline of the ḥāshiya genre is reflective of broader trends in the evolution of Islamic scholarship.
