A focus on the way in which Muslim scholars of the Hanafite school of Muslim law, from the 10th-12th centuries, adapted their legal norms to changing circumstances and distinguished between legal and ethical norms, religious and legal status, legal propositions and religious judgment. The introduction links this debate to the sociology of law and spells out the distinction between theology and law in Islam.
