A Comparative Exploration

Ian Richard Netton

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Proposes a new vocabulary for the articulation of Islam
  • Offers original comparisons between Salafism and Lefebvrism
  • Highlights the paradoxical harmony between tradition and itjihad in Islam
  • Articulates the yearning amongst today's Muslim and Christian traditionalists for a revival of a 'golden age' from whence, they believe, all good traditions derive.
