THE IBĀḌIYYA IN THE CONTEXT OF EARLY ISLAMIC THEOLOGY AND LAW

27.01.2017, Internationaler Workshop, OI Beirut

On the occasion of  Abdurrahman al-Salimi’s edition of three Ibāḍī siyar from fourth and fifth-century Oman (eleventh and twelfth centuries CE) in the OIB series Bibliotheca Islamica (vol. 51, 2016), this one-day workshop wants to explore how these texts connect to what we know from the early period of the Ibāḍiyya school. It will also attempt to situate the Ibāḍī case in the wider context of theological and legal thinking and its articulation in different kinds of writing during the early period (2nd/ 8th century).

Confirmed participants:

  • Abdulrahman Salimi (Editor-in-Chief of al-Tasāmuḥ/Tafāhum Journal, published by the Ministry of Endowments and Religious Affairs of Oman)
  • Yohei Kondo (Research Associate, Japan Center for Middle Eastern Studies in Beirut)
  • Stefan Leder (OIB)
  • Benjamin Jokisch (Hamburg)
  • Ridwan al-Sayyid (Beirut)

The detailed programme of the workshop will be published in early January.
