Event description

Description

Understanding the Qur’an’s engagement with Biblical and Biblically based traditions has re-emerged as a pivotal scholarly challenge. The Islamic scripture clearly addresses an audience that was profoundly familiar with a considerable amount of Biblical and post-Biblical Jewish and Christian stories, concepts, and doctrines, and it engages in a sophisticated process of ideological critique, recasting, and reconfiguration in accordance with a particular set of doctrinal commitments. The conference will gather an interdisciplinary group of specialists in order to create a comprehensive image of the current state of our knowledge about the Qur’an’s appropriation of Biblical traditions and to catalyse further progress.
