The Italian translation of the book ‘Shia in Islam’ written by the renowned Iranian scholar Allameh Muhammad-Husayn Tabatabaei was published by Iran’s Cultural Office in Rome.

The original version of the book with a preface by the noted Iranian philosopher, Gholamreza A’vani, was published in Persian language by the Iranian Philosophical Society. The book was translated by Alireza Jalali and Mona Rezvan and edited by Iman Mansub-Basiri, IRNA reported.

The book featuring Allameh Tabatabaei’s correspondences with western orientalist Henry Corbin is of high significance as it revived Shia philosophy.

Allameh Tabatabaei contributed greatly to promotion of Shia discourse and introducing Shia teachings in the West.
