Over recent years Ibadi siyar have attracted increasing interest among Islamic scholars in the West for three reasons: 1) Up to the 2nd/8th century they continued to be written in the 'original' Arabic literary style. 2) Their interpretation of early Islamic history is markedly different from that of the Sunni/Shiite tradition. 3) They show the development of early Islamic theology. This lecture is designed to demonstrate how Western scholars of Islamic studies have come to regard Ibadi siyar over the past three decades.
