Rudolf Strothmann (1877-1960) played a pioneering role in the scholarly exploration of Shi段 Islam in Western, especially German, scholarship. Between 1910 and 1923, he published many pathbreaking studies on the Zaydiyya, consulting primarily the recently purchased collections of Yemeni Zaydi manuscripts in Berlin. At the same time, he began to delve into Twelver Shi段 literature, culminating in his 1926 monograph on two prominent 7th- and 13th-century Imami scholars. Later in his life, Strothmann primarily focused on various strands of Isma段lism.This study examines the earlier decades of Strothmann痴 life and his development as a theologian and a scholar of Semitic languages and Islamic culture. It also sheds light on his scholarly work through his correspondence with several scholars. Illus.
