This volume of The Muslim World gathers together a number of studies dedicated to the issue of reception in relation to Ibn Taymiyya. Reception is here broadly intended to be interpreted in a variety of ways, ranging from simple reading and transmission, to accommodation and adaptation, rejection and refutation. In one way or another, it implies some form of engagement, either on Ibn Taymiyya's part with the scholarship of his predecessors, or his legacy after his death. In Griffel and Hoover's articles reception is not about who read and engaged with Ibn Taymiyya after his death, and how and why this was done - which is the topic of the other articles - but about Ibn Taymiyya's reception of his own work within subsequent writings, and his own engagement with the theological thought of his predecessors. The remaining five contributions (Bori, Dayeh, Adem, Zouggar and Sheikh) tackle the reception of some of Ibn Taymiyya's works or ideas from after his death to the beginning of the 17th century. This introductory essay also presents and critically discuss the works of those modern scholars who have identified some of the key figures responsible for spreading some of Ibn Taymiyya's writings and ideas in various regional and intellectual contexts. By so doing, the rationale that informs this volume is properly illustrated as well as the novel trajectory undertaken in this issue.

Abstract

This volume of The Muslim World gathers together a number of studies dedicated to the issue of reception in relation to Ibn Taymiyya. Reception is here broadly intended to be interpreted in a variety of ways, ranging from simple reading and transmission, to accommodation and adaptation, rejection and refutation. In one way or another, it implies some form of engagement, either on Ibn Taymiyya's part with the scholarship of his predecessors, or his legacy after his death. In Griffel and Hoover's articles reception is not about who read and engaged with Ibn Taymiyya after his death, and how and why this was done - which is the topic of the other articles - but about Ibn Taymiyya's reception of his own work within subsequent writings, and his own engagement with the theological thought of his predecessors. The remaining five contributions (Bori, Dayeh, Adem, Zouggar and Sheikh) tackle the reception of some of Ibn Taymiyya's works or ideas from after his death to the beginning of the 17th century. This introductory essay also presents and critically discuss the works of those modern scholars who have identified some of the key figures responsible for spreading some of Ibn Taymiyya's writings and ideas in various regional and intellectual contexts. By so doing, the rationale that informs this volume is properly illustrated as well as the novel trajectory undertaken in this issue.
