Practicing Sectarianism in Mandate Lebanon: Shi[.Sup.C]I Cemeteries, Religious Patrimony, And the Everyday Politics of Difference (Section III REGIONAL Issues) (Essay) by Journal of Social History

In his concluding remarks on an unresolved dispute over a piece of waqf property in the southern Lebanese village of Mashghara, a French Mandate administrator reported: Later that year, another Mandate official informed the French High Commissioner of the growing need to confirm that the "highest Shi[.sup.c]i religious judge" would indeed be "invested [with] the functions of supervision vis-a-vis the administrators of Shi[.sup.c]i wakfs." Uncertain about the protocol for resolving such matters in relation to awqaf (s. waqf), or Islamic charitable endowments, the French were not the only ones confused by the new state of organizational affairs. "The President of the Higher Shi[.sup.c]i Court, whom the Lebanese government notified [regarding] the administrative autonomy of Shi[.sup.c]i wakfs, complained that, at the same time, they have not yet notified him of the powers with which he is invested."
