Islamic culture and its institutions, so often misrepresented and misunderstood by Westerners, is here clearly articulated in Helen N. Boyle's timely and insightful look into Qur'anic schooling. Dating to the seventh century AD, these schools are indeed vestiges of the past. But they are equally reflective of Islam as it is lived today. Through ethnographic research in Morocco, Yemen, and Nigeria, this important volume illustrates the various and changing roles of Qur'anic schools in both preserving and transforming social, educational, and religious practices.
