The Trajectory of Hadith Studies on Shi'ite

Studies on Shi'ite hadīth in Turkey began in 1977 and tended to a regular increase especially after the formation of the Council of Higher Education. Since 2000's, these studies took a much more scholarly form in terms of both source utilization and writing style. Twenty five books and approximately sixty articles including the translations written in this field makes one think that Shi'ite hadīth studies have reached to a certain point. However, the fact that these studies are not undertaken in a definite framework of a programme or a project is a crucial problem. In addition, they share some characteristic drawbacks as well. This article, discusses and evaluates studies on Shi'ite hadīth in Turkey first, and gives an inventory of these studies, then puts forward several suggestions.
