L' Islam Shi'i, avec son histoire riche et vaste, a joué un rôle crucial dans l'évolution d'Islam tant comme une religion mondiale majeure qu'une civilisation.  Les accomplissements prolifiques de théologiens chiites, des philosophes et d'autres, témoignent de la richesse spirituelle et intellectuelle de cette communauté.  Pourtant, injustement, les études Shi'i ont resté largement négligés, malgré la contribution importante que le chiisme a fait aux traditions islamiques.  C'est dans des décennies récentes, partiellement stimulé par l'intérêt mondial des événement politiques du Moyen-Orien
