Abstract:It seems evident that many of the features of the general Islamic resurgence of recent years are present in the Sudan. However, in the 20th century the fundamentalist spirit, while found in a wide variety of groups, has not assumed as extreme or rigorist a form as elswhere in the Islamic world. The evolution of fundamentalism in the Sudan in the 20th century can be devided into three periods: the formative, post-Mahdiyyah period of the first quarter of the century; the period of the definition and consolidation of Sudanese nationalism, lasting until 1956, and the era of independence since 1956.
