The Qur'an and its Concepts
Ulrika Mårtensson [+–]
The Norwegian University of Science and Technology
The book aims at introducing research on the Qur’an by surveying how the Qur’an’s historical origins, its literary form and its conceptual meaning-contents have been defined by scholars within the Islamic disciplines and by comparing the Islamic scholarship on the Qur’an with academic state-of-the-art.
Through this approach, the book makes an original contribution to existing literature on the Qur’an by providing an exhaustive survey of Qur’anic concepts and their interrelatedness, by showing how these concepts gained meaning within the Islamic disciplines and by mapping correspondences and divergences between Islamic and academic scholarship on the Qur’an.
