Le chiisme est-il révolutionnaire? : Entretien avec Christophe Ayad

Abstract : To answer the question posed, we return to the dogma of Twelver Shiism and its history, particularly the concept of the imamat, and then to the history of the formation of Shiism, with its founding events, notably the battle of Karbala in 680. Then we retrace the history of the relationship between the Shiites and the powers in place before tackling the striking contemporary events, from the Constitutional Revolution to the Islamic Revolution in Iran, from the revolt of 1920 to the Shiite Islamic movements in Iraq. The interview ends on more current issues (Hezbollah, post-2003 Iraq, Yemen, etc.).
