Course description

This course aims to introduce students to the study of the Qurʾān as a literary document from Late Antiquity. The Qurʾānic text will be studied from a comparative perspective and will be read in light of texts and documentary evidence from the late antique Near East. Beside the Qurʾān, the analysis will focus on texts from three different cultural and communal environments in the 7th c. Near East: the Byzantine Empire, the Sasanian Empire and local Palestinian Jewish communities. By means of this historical contextualization the course seeks to provide a better understanding of selected Qurʾānic passages, as well as of the process of canonization of the Qurʾānic corpus. The course also aims to shed light on the historical circumstances that resulted in the emergence of Islam as a new religious community and imperial power. Knowledge of one or more languages relevant to the analysis of texts (i.e., Arabic, Geek, Latin, Syriac, Hebrew, Pahlavi, Georgian) is welcome but not required.
