(p.1) Introduction
The Qur'an and Late Antiquity

Angelika Neuwirth

, Samuel Wilder
Oxford University Press

The introduction first sketches the general approach followed in the volume, which is to trace the historical emergence of the text of the Qur’an against the historical background of the period. It situates this approach within the context of often conflicting discourses and political issues of knowledge production between Europe and the Islamic world and clarifies the way in which the study of the Qur’an can bridge hermeneutic polarities between East and West. Following this, the thirteen chapters that follow are described in brief, and an overview of the methodology and conclusions of the work are given.

Keywords:   hermeneutics, methodology, textual emergence, epigonality, reception history
