This is the translation of one chapter of a book called "shi'ite Religion." Despite its old age and inclusion of inaccurate material, this book is considered to be the starting point of factual studies about the Imamiyah (Shi'ite) religion in the West (for the English speakers), and is still a refernce for many Western researchers interested in Shi'i studies. In this chapter; the writer deals with Kisaniyah or the followers of Muhammad ibn Hanafiyah; Ashura' and its aftermath; the succession of Imam Zayn al-Abidin after his noble father's martyrdom; and uprisings such as Tawwabin's, Mukhtar's and ibn Zubayr's Afrerwards, he has turned to Imam Sajjad's imamah and mentioned some private aspects of his life. In his footnotes, the translator - as much as possible - has corrected numerous incorrect views put forward by Donaldson.
Key words: imamah, Ashura', Kisaniyah, Shi'ah uprisings, Imam Zayn al-Abidin.
