Sufism´s diversity : A survey of research (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to examine how Sufism is explained in textbooks for high school students in the subject religious studies 1 and 2. To do this I have also summarized research on Sufism in Sweden. This thesis is based on three questions: What does recent science says about the purpose of sufism, its proliferation and its practice in Sweden and globally. Is the description of sufism multifaceted or not? What do the textbooks say about sufism? Do textbooks give a multifaceted picture of sufism, or is it unilateral? The results show that Sufism is more multifaceted and deeper and plays a bigger role than is apparent in religious books for high school, although even textbooks show a variegated picture of Sufism. Postcolonial theory and the orientalism theory presented by Edward Said are used in this thesis.
