Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya and the divine attributes : rationalized traditionalistic theology / by Miriam Ovadia.
|Main author:||Ovadia, Miriam, (Author)|
Miriam Ovadia offers a thorough discussion on the hermeneutical methodology applied in the theology of the Hanbalite traditionalistic scholar Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya (d. 1350), the most prominent disciple of the renowned Ibn Taymiyya (d. 1328). Focusing on Ibn al-Qayyim's voluminous - yet so far understudied - work on anthropomorphism, 'al-Sawa'iq al-Mursala', Ovadia explores his modus operandi in his attack on four fundamental rationalistic convictions, while demonstrating Ibn al-Qayyim's systemization of the Taymiyyan theological doctrine and theoretical discourse. Contextualizing al-Sawa'iq with relevant writings of thinkers who preceded Ibn al-Qayyim, Ovadia unfolds his employment of Kalamic terminology and argumentations; thus, his rationalized-traditionalistic authoring of a theological manifesto directed against his contemporary Ash'arite elite of Mamluk Damascus.
