His period of office (1958-63) was a turbulent time in Egypt and within the Azhar itself, with President Nassers socialist government initiating a radical reorganization of that institution in accordance with its policy of exerting greater control over the forces of Islam in Egypt. By focusing on the work of an essentially traditional religious scholar, this study of Shaltuts life and thought will fill a serious gap in modern Islamic studies.
