about this item

In 17 full and revised papers presented at a May 2011 conference in Sophia, Bulgaria, historians and scholars of Islam trace the historical destiny of the mufti's (local Islamic leader) institution, identify the main challenges it is facing now, and forecast the future of Islamic leadership in the European lands that were part of either the Ottoman or the Russian empire. Their topics include a historical retrospective on muftiship: muftis, state muftis, and official muftis; the Ottoman and Yugoslav legacy; Albania, Romania, Islamic leadership: the Russian and Soviet legacy; Lithuania; Ukraine; and drawing parallels.
