The principal theological struggle in Islam has taken place between traditionalist and rationalist theologians. Assessing materials from the 3rd/9th century to the 10th/16th century, Professor Abrahamov focuses on the foundations of both traditionalism and rationalism, the arguments which the two tendencies used against each other and the compromises reached. This is a ground-breaking study by a renowned scholar and writer.
