Reinigung des Glaubens: Salafismus und der Balkan

EPISODE 7 | Das Generalinterview mit Prof. Dr. Simeon Evstatiev

Im Generalinterview mit Prof. Dr. Simeon Evstatiev beschreibt dieser sein Projekt „Reinigung des Glaubens: Salafismus und der Balkan“. Er spricht unter anderem über Herausforderungen des Projektes und die Neuerungen, die seine Forschung der Konzeptualisierung des Begriffs „Salafismus“ bringen kann. Außerdem erklärt er die Besonderheit der Untersuchungen des Salafismus durch den Fokus auf den Balkan, und die komplexe Beziehung zwischen salafistischer Religion und der Politik bzw. der Gesellschaft dort.

Forschungsprojekt
The project seeks to understand modern Salafism as a complex transnational Islamic movement that evokes normative texts and paradigmatic historical antecedents. I focus on Salafiyya comparing them with strict Ḥanafīs in interrelated contemporary and historical contexts included in provinces of the former Ottoman Empire. Proposing an ethnography of modern Salafism in the Balkans, I thus suggest a parallel historical amplification of an early modern trajectory of revivalist Islam as represented by the spread of the seventeenth-century Istanbul-based Qāḍīzādeli movement. The project draws on both ethnographic and historical evidence, and the pursuit of its intermediate goals will result in integrating the revealed Salafī patterns of adherence to Islam vis-à-vis alternative forms of “fundamentalist” Islam, particularly strict Ḥanafism, into the large of Islamic history. The project will contribute to the ongoing academic and societal discussions on Islamic fundamentalism and to the definition of Salafism as a contemporary and historical phenomenon via debate and publications. The main product of the research will be a monograph – the first history of Salafism in the Balkans.
