This chapter gives a broad overview of broader trends within Islam in Turkey as well as a brief history of Turkish theology faculties. In addition, it explains and problematizes the term “theology” as a translation for the Turkish “ilahiyat.” It further provides a summary of the book’s main argument that Turkish Muslim theology involves dialectical mediation of multiple authoritative traditions and concludes with subsequent chapter descriptions.

Keywords:   Ilahiyat, Turkish Theology Faculties, Turkish Muslim Theology, Islam in Turkey
