This volume addresses the diversity of sainthood in Islam with respect to rural and urban and metropolitan ideas, practices and cults, their networks and institutions. Ranging from ethnography and history to political science and social theory, this work includes studies of places and the local cultural significance of sainthood, its ethnic or genealogical origin, the constitution of corporations and brotherhoods and drives for sacredness in Algeria, Egypt, Germany and Turkey.
