Studies in Modern Arab History
This course aims to survey a variety of historical and religious texts in Arabic that were produced by the Wahhabi scholars of Najd and the Zaydi scholars of Yemen between the 18th and 20th centuries. Treatises produced by the opponents of the Wahhabis and Zaydis will also be studied and read carefully. Students must have mastery of advanced Arabic. Some of the texts that will be studied have been edited and published, others remain in manuscript form. Among the treatises that will be assigned are some of the letters of the founder of the Wahhabiyya, Shaykh Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab.
Open to Graduate Students Only.
