    So much did

    I have tried to show my problem by the following sentence:

    "During the first centuries of Islam,Shaykhs seldom called themselves 'Sufis',so much did this word purpose the existence of extraordinary qualities.

    The part of sentence that contains "so much did......." is difficult to me. Would you like to clear this hard sentence?

    Re: So much did

    I suppose it means that the word had such strong connotations then of these extraordinary qualities that they avoided using it, through modesty for instance.
