Writing the History of Religious Authority in Najaf: The Marja‘iyya as Apparatus

Abstract : This article explores the history of modern Marja‘iyya aiming to give a new insight on the subject. This institution of the religious authority in Shi‘i Islam is analyzed according to the concept of apparatus (dispositif) enunciated by Michel Foucault. It focuses on several constituent elements of this apparatus: norms and concepts, forms of writing, religious taxes and networks.
