One thought on “The Divine Guide in Early Shi'ism: The Sources of Esotericism in Islam

  1. Joseph Lumbard

    An excellent discussion of the full meaning of the imamate as a spiritual, not just a political, reality, with a heavy emphasis on metaphysical and mystical ideas within Shi ism The sheer breadth of the sources employed makes this a truly exceptional work The Imam is the intellect without and the intellect is the Imam within

  2. Wael

    Livre tr s int ressant sur la doctrine originelle du chiisme L auteur pr sente ici le chiisme sous un angle sot rique L imamat est d crite dans ses diff rents degr s d existence montrant ainsi le r le Divin que m nent les imams impeccables La relation des Imams avec la politique est aussi abord e, mais aussi l apparition de l cole nouvelle du chiisme qui a consacr ses nergies la jurisprudence en oubliant l essentiel du message chiite L Imamat comme sot risme de la Nubuwa

  3. Ahmed

    An excavation of the original sense of the Imamah in earliest Shi ism, particularly its cosmological and soteriological elements.
