Anthropomorphism in Islam: The Challenge of Traditionalism (700-1350), by Livnat Holtzman

Pavel Pavlovitch


(First paragraph)

Traditions with explicit or implied anthropomorphic depictions of the divinity (aḥādīth al-ṣifāt) had been a perennial topic in Muslim theology and ḥadīth scholarship. Western academic inroads into the field have been mostly limited to passing references or sections in general studies on the theology of the divine attributes in Islam. Now, Livnat Holtzman takes a comprehensive and innovative view on aḥādīth al-ṣifāt during the formative and classical age of Sunnī Islam, in her monograph Anthropomorphism in Islam. The Challenge of Traditionalism (700-1350).
