This book, which we have called Shi’ite Islam, seeks to clarify the true identity of Shi’ism which is one of the two major branches of Islam-the other being Sunnism. It deals in particular with the way Shi’ism originated and later developed, with the type of religious thought present in Shi’ism, and with Islamic sciences and culture as seen from the Shi’ite point of view.
