発表要旨:Over the past century, the humanistic appeal of the mystical poetry and theosophical teachings of the Sufis has won them many admirers outside the dar al-islam. Yet in the same period, Sufi Islam has increasingly been rejected by Salafis and other Muslim reformists. These developments are easier to understand when we take a historical approach that takes account of the social, political and ethnographic dimensions of Sufi Islam, including the rise of Sufis to the position of a ‘religious establishment.’ Ranging from India to the Middle East, this illustrated lecture outlines basic conceptual principles that help us to understand the socio-political functions of the Sufis that contributed to their ascendancy no less than their loss of power.
