Al-Qubaysiyyāt: Negotiating Female Religious Authority in Damascus


  • Author's note: I am indebted to the U.S. Department of State's Fulbright Program for having granted me a Fulbright Fellowship to financially support my research in Damascus in 2005–2006. This essay is, therefore, mostly the result of the research conducted during that year. It is focused on this movement's activities up to that point.
