(p.239) 7 Stages of Communal Formation in the Early Meccan Period
The Qur'an and Late Antiquity

Angelika Neuwirth

, Samuel Wilder
Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews the “communal development” that occurred over the course of the early Meccan period of the Qur’an’s proclamation. This proceeds from an early “psalmic” piety based largely around the vigil and the Prophet-biographical elements of the early suras to proclamations more focused on “warning” and reflections on writing and signs of creation.

Keywords:   vigil, communal formation, early Meccan, creation signs, psalmic piety
