IMAMOLOGY_ FROM THE VIEWPOINT OF HISTORY & THEOLOGY
According to the belief of the Shia Muslims, their Imams are endowed with some superhuman qualities, such as knowledge of the unseen, infallibility and miracles, etc. Shia believe in this. But, history is a knowledge that is based on scientific methodology. Therefore, instead of considering the superhuman perfections associated with the Imams, it emphasizes the historical facts that the youth are connected with human characteristics. On the other hand, superhuman qualities are most preferred by theologians. The most important issue in this article is how the supernatural actions and miracles of the Shia Imams can be proved to be natural and regular through a historical study.
