First volume of Accusations of Unbelief in Islam: A diachronic perspective on takfir published
This first volume of Accusations of Unbelief in Islam deals with takfir – accusing one’s opponents of unbelief (kufr). The publication includes studies that deal with cases covering different periods of the Muslim world, of individuals or groups that used the instrument of takfir to brand their opponents as unbelievers who should face social exclusion or even persecution.
Professor Robert Gleave of Exeter University and the Islamic Reformulations project, and Istvan Kristo-Nagy (formerly the LIVIT Research Fellow) both have contributions: “Abandoning Prayer and the Declaration of Unbelief in Imami Jurisprudence” and “Denouncing the Damned Zindiq! Struggle and Interaction between Monotheism and Dualism”.
