about

Though the headlines of today's newspapers suggest that the rift between Sunnis and Shi'is is eternal, the relationship between these two primary Islamic sects has not always been contentious. This is nowhere more evident than around the shrines of the 'Alids. Revered by Sunnis and Shi'isalike, shrines to the Prophet's family have often served as unique spaces of inter-sectarian exchange and shared devotion. In this study, Stephannie Mulder meaningfully links these shrines to the wider, pan-Islamic landscape of interconnected pilgrimage sites created from these acts ofpatronage.
Stephennie Mulder is Assistant Professor in Islamic Art and Architecture at the The University of Texas at Austin.
