Abstract

Pesantrens (Islamic Boarding School) are Islamic educational institutions in Indonesia that are timeless, because of their adaptability to the development of society. These educational institutions develop because they have the wisdom to face changes and the ability to adapt to the challenges of modernity. During the colonial period, pesantren adapted to local culture so that Islam could be accepted by the Banten people, as well as a center of resistance to colonialism. Whereas in contemporary times, pesantren adapted to the demands of modern life. Although due to the challenges of modernity there are various variants of the pesantren model, it is related to the emergence of religious ideology in responding to modernity. The ability of pesantren in adapting to facing challenges can‘t be separated from the discursive tradition in Islam so that the scholars can negotiate between past practices as a reference with the demands of the age faced and their future.
