Summary:
This volume examines the ways by which Iranian Shiite scholars have re-articulated state-religion-society relations beyond the Islamic state paradigm. Despite its promises, the Islamic state has systematically prioritized political considerations over religious precepts, inadvertently generating a reformist religious discourse that questions the very foundations of the Islamic state. This book investigates this counter-discourse by developing the seemingly oxymoronic term 'religious secularity' to highlight the paradoxes inherent in the Islamic state ideal.
