Angelika Neuwirth

, Samuel Wilder
Oxford University Press

In this chapter, a detailed depiction is offered of the development of specific biblical figures and narratives in the Qur’an. Each figure reflects the Qur’anic reframing of the role of prophecy in general and the biblical figuration of prophecy and Prophets in specific. The depictions of these figures are set against the background of their evidence in the preceding Late Antique religious and literary traditions, including Alexander legends, Christian homilies, and the Jewish accounts of Josephus.

Keywords:   Abraham, Moses, Noah, biblical narratives, Prophet stories, post-biblical literature, narrative development
