To what extent can concepts such as orthodoxy and heresy—originating from a different religious and cultural tradition—be applied in an Islamic context? This new Routledge collection of major works synthesizes the latest scholarship to address and answer this question. It explores the terminology on religious ‘deviation’ found in Islamic texts, and looks at specific debated issues that shed light on the implications of the theoretical discussions.

The readership for this collection will be wide: teachers and students in Islamic Studies, Religious Studies, Medieval Studies, Sociology, and Anthropology will all welcome this essential work of reference.
