    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    This book addresses the presentation of the Shīʿa in the extant theological-doxographical literature of Iraq up to the early fourth century of Islam. Understanding doxographies primarily as textual products of third-century kalām circles, it provides historians with a more thorough account of the likely provenance and transmission of this important body of source material, as well as of the particular images of the early Shīʿa it constructs.
