The primary goal of this study is to open various windows into the contributions, thoughts and works of the Malay ‘Ulama’ and literary scholars in the Malay Archipelago over a period of around seven centuries, commencing with the establishment of Islam in the region during the latter part of the 13th century, and continuing on until the present day.
This study will present a number of ‘Ulama’ who constituted the core of scholarly networks throughout history; particular attention is given to the nature of their relationships in the networks.
This study is devoted to presenting the careers and teachings of the leading precursors of the Malay ‘Ulama’ in the history of Malay scholarly networks. Special attention is given to their connections with leading scholars in the networks in the Middle East, and to how teachings spread in the Archipelago related to Islamic renewalism and reformism in the centres.
