Микроистория реисламизации в бывшем колхозе

Ислам в современном мире. 2017. Т. 13. № 3. С. 139-158.

The paper traces a microhistory of the return of Islam to the public sphere examining it at the local level of a distinct Muslim congregation(jama‘at) in Northern Dagestan. The most serious impact of the dissolution of the Soviet kolkhoz system was the division of a single community into two separate congregations in the mountains and the lowlands. The emergence of Islam in the public sphere in the 1990s brought about an abrupt polarization of Dagestani society, which was divided into several antagonist factions of the so-called or labeled Salafis and traditionalists. However, the congregation’s majority has been changing its religious orientation according to the situation, siding sometimes with one or other faction.
