Contextualization of Sufi Spirituality in Seventeenth and Eighteenth Century China
David Lee, Peter G. Riddell (Foreword)
The Role of Liu Zhi
Liu Zhi (c.1662-c.1730), a well-known Muslim scholar in China, published in Chinese outstanding theological works, short treatises, and easy-to-memorize short poems on Islam. This book is an in-depth study of Liu Zhi's contextualization of Islam into Chinese culture that argues that his contextualization has not deviated from the basic tenets of Islamic belief.
