Synopsis: The first illustrated, architectural history of the 'Alid shrines, increasingly endangered by the conflict in Syria

The 'Alids (descendants of the Prophet Muhammad) are among the most revered figures in Islam, beloved by virtually all Muslims, regardless of sectarian affiliation. This study argues that despite the common identification of shrines as 'Shi'i' spaces, they have in fact always been unique places of pragmatic intersectarian exchange and shared piety, even - and perhaps especially - during periods of sectarian conflict.

Using a rich variety of previously unexplored sources, including textual, archaeological, architectural, and epigraphic evidence, Stephennie Mulder shows how these shrines created a unifying Muslim 'holy land' in medieval Syria, and proposes a fresh conceptual approach to thinking about landscape in Islamic art. In doing so, she argues against a common paradigm of medieval sectarian conflict, complicates the notion of Sunni Revival, and provides new evidence for the negotiated complexity of sectarian interactions in the period.

Book Description EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY PRESS, United States, 2013. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Explores the relationship between Sunnis and Shi is as expressed in the shrines of the Alids. Though the headlines of today s newspapers suggest that the rift between Sunnis and Shi is is eternal, the relationship between these two primary Islamic sects has not always been contentious. This is most evident around the shrines of the Alids: revered by Sunnis and Shi is alike, shrines to the Prophet s family have often served as unique spaces of intersectarian exchange and shared devotion. Mulder links the architecture and patronage of shrines to the wider, pan-Islamic landscape of interconnected pilgrimage sites created from these acts of patronage.
