Visiting the Hawza

Over the past week I have had the unique opportunity to visit the Hawza of al-Najaf. I will post some of my reflections here in the coming days as well as a few images of al-Najaf, which rightly claims to be most important center of Shi'i Muslim scholarship over the course of history.

Prof. Norton:

Are you still planning on writing a bit about your trip to al-Najaf?
