Special Issue Information
Reading and interpreting the Qur’an has always been fundamental in Islamic religious discourse, both for Muslims believers and for scholars of Islam. In recent decades, this has become even more true. For Muslims, recent sensibilities and trends have brought the Qur’an even more to the centre of Islamic discourse. For scholarly research, discoveries of manuscripts, new editions, and translations, but above all new approaches, have produced and are producing a growing number of works on the Qur’anic text. All of these studies engaged the Qur’anic contents and form, displaying differing and sometimes contrasting attitudes. All of this is taking place in the Muslim world and among Muslims, but also in Western lands, where a growing number of Muslims are contributing to the scientific debate, and to defining a new significance of the Qur’an as a text diffused all over the world.
To deal with this, scholars who have recently contributed or are interested in contributing to the debate on the Qur’an are invited to offer further reflection. Along with this, they are invited to go a step further and consider, along with their scholarship and vision, the perspective of the past approaches, and the impact of such interpretations in the field and in the contemporary world. The scope of the volume as a whole will be to highlight the variety of approaches and answers that scholars, Muslim and non-Muslim, give questions, such as, to name a few examples: how could/should we approach the Qur’an in religious studies today and in the decades to come? What is the significance of interpretating the Qur’an for Muslims all over the world and in religious studies? How could/should a (new) interpretation of the Qur’an be functional to the developments of future societies?
Prof. Dr. Roberto Tottoli
