In this episode of 15 Minute History, host Christopher Rose talks to Shainool Jiwa, Head of Constituency Studies at the Institute for Ismaili Studies in London about the Fatimids. This podcast illuminates an interesting element of sectarianism in the MENA region by asking why it is that after 3 centuries of Shia rule in the region, Sunnis drastically dominate with little trace of the Shia empire. This resource also includes links to other interviews with Dr. Jiwa. >
