Global Publications, Jan 1, 2001 - Religion - 406 pages
Shi段te Heritage brings together Western and Muslim scholarship on multiple aspects of the Twelver Shi段te tradition, including history, authority, jurisprudence, ritual, and interactions with the Sunnite majority.

Both modern views and the classical background are treated in this collection, and each section is introduced in a prefatory essay.
