Abstract:

The Qur'an is the source of inspiration for one of the world's major religions, followed today by over a billion people. It plays a central role in Islam and ever since it appeared over fourteen centuries ago has been the subject of intense debate. Some of this has been carried out by Muslims and some by those hostile or indifferent to Islam, producing a very wide range of views.

Authored by 43 international experts, the objective of The Qur?an: An Encyclopedia is to present this diversity of thought, approach and school in order to give a strong appreciation of the range of response that the text has provoked throughout its history. It provides students and researchers with a powerful resource covering all aspects of the text and its reception.
