Description

In this chapter, beginning with the early stage of qur’anic commentary and then follow- ing up with Heath’s three divisions, I try to show how various disciplines and historical contexts affected various Muslim understandings of  Q. 2:30. I must add, however, that I will merely be scratching the sur- face, seeking only to illustrate in broad strokes some of the herme- neutical material of the previous chapters.
