For centuries, the Hawza system of seminary education has produced outstanding scholars and fostered the development of Islamic studies throughout the Shi'i world. The present book discusses the Hawza from its formative period in the second Islamic century until the modern day. In addition to discussing the major Hawza centres of Qum and Najaf, it also discusses the history and development of Hawzas in Rayy, Baghdad, Hilla, Jabal 'Àmil, Isfahan, Tehran, and Mashhad. Academic concerns - such as texts, curricula, and pedagogical methodologies - are discussed along with the sociopolitical conditions that affected the Hawzas. This book is part of a series of translations from the Encyclopaedia of the World of Islam (EWI) which was originally compiled in Persian. Other entries from this encyclopaedia which are available in English include Hadith, History and Historiography, Periodicals of the Muslim World, Muslim Organizations, Politics & Political Parties, Qur'anic Commentaries, Qur'anic Exegesis, Sufism, and Education in Islamic Civilisation.
