School of Hillah and the Formation of Twelver Shi‘i Islamic Tradition

«Professor Ali’s book is a mammoth undertaking that interrogates the archival record to meticulously trace the relationships that existed between scholars and their texts. By recentering Hillah (from the twelfth to fourteenth centuries) as a key site for the formation of Twelver Shi'ism, he demonstrates the ways in which the intellectual tradition that flourished in this city continues to impact our understanding of Twelver Shi'ism until today»

«A tour de force of Shi'i Islamic studies, Aun Hasan Ali’s The School of Hillah manages to combine historical precision with the larger theoretical interests of religious studies. Ali carefully outlines the evolution of Shi'i law, theology, and exegesis by untangling a pivotal and complex network of scholars. Above all else, the book’s clarity and intellectual vigor render it a sheer joy to read.»

Cyrus Ali Zargar, Professor, University of Central Florida, USA

«Aun Hasan Ali’s book provides an enlightening, comprehensive analysis of intellectual life at one of the most important centers of Shi'i scholarship during the formative period of Imami thought and practice. Surveying the pertinent scholarly networks, their controversies and literary contributions to the main disciplines and genres, the author demonstrates the extent to which the intellectual landscape of Imami scholarship of Southern Iraq between the twelfth and fourteenth century CE was determined by an underlying framework of disagreement.»

Sabine Schmidtke, Professor, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, USA.

«Aun Hasan Ali offers a long-overdue, in-depth and interdisciplinary examination of the careers and contributions of the Imami Shi'i scholars of this pivotal period in the history of the faith. The School of Hillah constitutes a masterful contribution to the field of Shi'i studies.»

Andrew J. Newman, Professor, University of Edinburgh, UK

«[Aun Hasan] Ali has provided us with a rich account of the formation of what is recognisably the Shi'i learned tradition and each element of his discussion raises questions and takes one down a path of inquiry which will be fruitful. It is in that sense exemplary.»

Sajjad Rizvi, University of Exeter, UK, The Muslim World Book Review
