Ayedh S. Aldosari [+]
Chapter Six is devoted to studying the reasons that al-Māturīdī and his school were almost unknown among the scholars of their age and remained so for so long afterwards. It also studies the Māturīdite School from its modest beginnings through to its gradual proliferation to finally becoming one of the biggest Islamic scholastic theological schools in the Muslim World and making up, together with the Ashʿarī School, the representative body of the Sunni kalam tradition.
