“Reconstructions of the Past: Hafsa bint Sirin” (8 blog entries published on Feminism and Religion)

A series of blogs on Hafsa bint Sirin (d. 100/800), a scholar of Qur’an, Hadith, and legal readings of the Qur’an, and a deeply pious worshipper. The blogs discuss how women’s stories over time have been transmitted and interpreted in such ways as to emphasize pious solitude rather than social or intellectual engagement.
