Year in Pictures It’s time to look back at the past academic year, and reflect on the exciting people and work that have come together at the Program in Islamic Law and the SHARIAsource Lab. We’ve brought it all together with a video montage of the year in pictures, and include here details and links to featured events throughout the year.
CONTEXT: Maps of The Life and Legacy of Imam Jaʿfar al-Ṣādiq Professor Hossein Modarressi’s (Princeton University) Text and Interpretation: Imam Jaʿfar al-Ṣādiq and His Legacy in Islamic Law (Harvard University Press, 2022) examines the main characteristics of the legal thought of Imam Jaʿfar al-Ṣādiq, a preeminent religious scholar jurist of Medina in the mid-eighth century CE. While previous literature has focused on the current status of the school in its developed and expanded form, this book presents an intellectual history of how the school began. As part of the online companion, we’ve created historical and modern maps on the “The Life and Legacy of Imam Jaʿfar al-Ṣādiq” which relates to places where Jaʿfar al-Ṣādiq lived, visited, or are otherwise associated with him.
