Fortschreibung und Auslegung: Studien zur frühen Koraninterpretation

Koranentstehung und frühe Koranrezeption sind seit John Wansbroughs Quranic Studies (1977) Gegenstand kontroverser Debatten. Die Studie entwickelt deshalb zunächst ein allgemeines Szenario von Stellung und Funktion des Koran im frühen Islam, das traditionalistische und revisionistische Gedanken integriert. Durch eine Reihe von Überlegungen kann darüberhinaus die chronologische Priorität des Koran ... more

Muḥammad as an Episcopal figure

The Medinan stratum of the Qurʾān ascribes to Muḥammad a noticeably elevated status and a far wider range of functions than the earlier Meccan layer. Although this shift may well have responded to, and been facilitated by, historical circumstances, it is nonetheless appropriate to inquire whether specific aspects of it might be drawing on pre-Qurʾānic precedents. I argue that the Christian episcop... more

The Qur'an: a historical-critical introduction

The Qur’an represents both Islam’s historical point of origin and its scriptural foundation, inaugurating a new religion and, ultimately, a new civilisation. Yet the text itself can be difficult to understand, and the scholarship devoted to it is often highly technical. This comprehensive introduction to the basic methods and current state of historical-critical Qur’anic scholarship covers all of ... more

Religious poetry from the Quranic milieu: Umayya b. Abī l-Ṣalt on the fate of the Thamūd

Unlike most ancient Arabic poetry, the poems attributed to Umayya b. Abī l-Ṣalt treat subjects that are also prominent in the Quran, such as creation, eschatology, and episodes from Biblical history. The authenticity of this corpus has, however, been the subject of some controversy. After a critical survey of previous scholarship, this article examines one particular passage from the Umayya corpus... more

When did the consonantal skeleton of the Quran reach closure?

The Islamic tradition credits the promulgation of a uniform consonantal skeleton (rasm) of the Quran to the third caliph ʿUthmān (r. 644–656). However, in recent years various scholars have espoused a conjectural dating of the Quran's codification to the time of ʿAbd al-Malik, or have at least maintained that the Islamic scripture was open to significant revision up until c. 700 ce. This two-part ... more
