This investigation looks at the development of the Maliki school in Muslim Spain in the 3rd/9th and 4th/10th centuries. It begins with an introduction to the subject which covers the relevant bibliography, the main sources used and a brief look at Malik's life and legal thought. Part I then deals with the beginnings of Malikism in al-Andalus. After a quick glance at Malik's earliest students in al-Andalus, the legal views of Yahya b. YaQya -Malik's most famous Andalusian student- are closely analysed. Then the legal views of the two other most famous Andalusian Malikis of the 3rd/9th century _clsa b. Dinar and C Abd aI-Malik b. I:IabIb- are looked at. In part II the variety of legal trends in the 4th/10th century are looked at using the works of al-Tulaytall, al-KhushanI, al-Jubayn, Ibn Zarb, Ibn Abi Zamanin and Ibn al-Attar. The analysis, attempts to concentrate on the legal views of the jurists -their attitude towards Malik's authority, their way of dealing with the binding texts of the Qur'an and the injunctions of the Prophet and whether there is a sense of school doctrine. The investigation concludes that already in the 3rd/9th century Malik's authority was well established whilst his students were becoming increasingly important. By the 4th/10th century the school was firmly established although attitudes to Malik's views showed that it was still acceptable to differ from the eponym.
