Abstract:

Rather than treating the ritual purity required by Islamic law as derivative of earlier religions, Katz (religion, Mount Holyoke College) interprets taboos regarding blood, menstruating women, sexual intercourse, and such as due to the Qur'an's relevance to everyday life. She discusses the early evolution of rules regarding impurity, in contrast to revisionist readings that later generations projected their views onto sources. Based on the author's U. of Chicago doctoral thesis. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR.
