Abstract: 

One of the four major works of Shi‘a biographical studies (rijali) is al-Fihrist by Abu Ja‘far Muhammad b. Hasan b. ‘Ali b. Hasan Ṭusi known as Shaykh al-Ta’ifa. As implied from its title, this book was written to represent the names of Shi‘a works and compilations; however, since besides bibliographical information various biographical references are also included in this book, Muslim scholars have recognized it as one of the major four works of biographical studies.
In this article, however, we have considered Shaykh's Al-Fihrist simply as a catalog (fisrist) of principles (usul) and works (muSannafat) and tried to figure out Shaykh Tusi's methodology in expressing general information concerning the authors and their writings and the way it is presented.
