Within Islamic studies, the subfield of theology has been one of steady growth over the decades. With respect to the Māturīdī school of theology, indebted to the eponymous Abū Manṣūr al-Māturīdī (d. 333/944), a noticeable increase in publications, scholarly monographs, and peer-reviewed journal articles has appeared in recent years.
