Accusations of Unbelief in Islam: A Diachronic Perspective on Takfir, edited by Camilla Adang, Hassan Ansari, Maribel Fierro, and Sabine Schmidtke (Islamic History and Civilization, Studies and Texts, 123) (Leiden & Boston: Brill, 2016), xviii+534 pp., ISBN: 978-90-04-30473-4 (hb) & 978-90-04-30783-

and Syria. Most of the victims in these cases (some of which ended up with public execution) were Sufis, Coptic converts to Islam, and at times Mamluk amirs. Levanoni discusses how relationships among Mamluk leaders, among judges belonging to different Sunni madhhabs, and between the Mamluk Sultan and the "religious establishment" influenced the course and outcomes of some of these trials. Chapter seven presents the case of the 8th/14th-century Hurufi movement as example of what Orkhan Mir-Kasimov calls the "renovational" as opposed to the "abrogational" trends that he argues have existed since early Islam. Whereas the former trend accepts Islam's religious texts and can thus be tolerated by the traditional ?ulama?, the latter is based on the notion of the "continuation of the prophecy" and is therefore regarded as sheer kufr. Chapter eight, on the other hand, presents a case of a group - the 11th/17th "revivalist" Qadizadeli movement in the Ottoman Empire - that practiced takfir against others.
