(p.147) 7 The Maryamiyya
Against the Modern World

Mark Sedgwick (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter is the first of two devoted to the later history of Schuon’s Sufi order, originally the Alawiyya. This was renamed the Maryamiyya as a consequence of a series of visions during the 1960s in which, Schuon believed, the Virgin Mary appeared to him and gave him a universal mission. The chapter covers events from the split with Gu”non in 1950 until Schuon’s last known major vision in 1966, and considers the consequence of these visions for Schuon and for the Maryamiyya. It ends with a discussion of Schuon’s most important follower, Seyyed Hossein Nasr, and of Traditionalism in Iran up to the Islamic Revolution of 1979, especially the Imperial Iranian Academy of Philosophy

Keywords:   Maryamiyya, Virgin Mary, Schuon, Iran, Nasr, philosophy, Iranian revolution
