Aktuelle Aushandlungsprozesse des Verhältnisses von Religion, Staat und Politik: Eine Positionsbestimmung der heutigen Gegner und Befürworter der velāyat-e faqīh in Iran und im Irak


Amirpur, Katajun (2012). Aktuelle Aushandlungsprozesse des Verhältnisses von Religion, Staat und Politik: Eine Positionsbestimmung der heutigen Gegner und Befürworter der velāyat-e faqīh in Iran und im Irak. Asiatische Studien / Études Asiatiques, 66(3):521-564.

Abstract

This article focuses on current processes of negotiating the relationships between religion, state, and politics through the lens of velāyat-e faqīh and the opinions of its leading supporters and critics in both Iran and Irak, and offers a tentative classification of these positions. The entire history of Shi‛a can be written by studying which of the different positions on this subject were held by which groups at any specific point in time. Even today, the question of who should rule, what source of legitimacy the ruler ought to have, and how extensive the powers accorded to the so-called Supreme Jurisprudent should be, is one of the most pressing and most hotly debated.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
