Hashim Ashari at Tebu Ireng was known for Hadith, whereas Pesantren Jampes of Kediri was well known for its kyai who were experts on Sufism (Dhofier T H E P OL IT ICIZ AT ION OF T HE “AP OL ITICA L” 7 1980:11). Students would wander from pesantren to pesantren studying under each expert in the fields he wished to master. This tradition created ulama that had both a solid foundation of training as well as broad network of contacts, both horizontal (with classmates) and vertical (with teachers).
