Humor in der arabischen Kultur by Georges Tamer( )

22 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in German and English and held by 1,528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collected volume publishes the contributions of numerous scholars to the International Symposium Humor in Arabic Culture, by the editor in July 2007 at the Free University of Berlin. First of all, a critical view is taken of early Muslim religious writings - and against the background of relevant Jewish and Christian pronouncements - to determine more closely the Islamic discourse on the value and non-value of humor; here too the question is examined of the extent to which normative forces were thus released which were able to set boundaries for Arabic humor. Then the wide spectrum of the

Exegetical crossroads : understanding Scripture in Judaism, Christianity and Islam in the pre-modern Orient by Georges Tamer( )

14 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 1,118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Back cover: The art of interpreting Holy Scriptures flourished throughout the culturally heterogeneous pre-modern Orient among Jews, Christians and Muslims. Different ways of interpretation developed within each religion not without considering the others. How were the interactions and how productive were they for the further development of these traditions? Have there been blurred spaces of scholarly activity that transcended sectarian borders? What was the role played by mutual influences in profiling the own tradition against the others? These and other related questions are critically treated in the present volume
Islam and rationality : the impact of al-Ghazali : papers collected on his 900th anniversary by Frank Griffel( )

23 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 874 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume offers an account of Abū Ḥāmid al-Ghazālī (d. 505/1111) as a rational theologian who created a symbiosis of philosophy and theology and infused rationality into Sufism. The majority of the papers herein deal with important topics of al-Ghazālī's work, which demonstrate his rational treatment of the Qurʼān and major subjects of Islamic theology and everyday life of Muslims. Some other contributions address al-Ghazālī's sources and how his intellectual endeavors were later received by scholars who had the same concern of reconciling religion and rationality within Islam, Christianity and Judaism. With contributions by Binyamin Abrahamov, Hans Daiber, Ken Garden, Avner Giladi, Scott Girdner, Frank Griffel, Steven Harvey, Alfred Ivry, Jules Janssens, Taneli Kukkonen, Luis Xavier López-Farjeat, Wilferd Madelung, Yahya M.

Islamic theology, philosophy and law : debating Ibn Taymiyya and Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya by Alina Kokoschka( )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 770 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present volume sheds new light on central themes of Ibn Taymiyya's (661/1263-728/1328) and Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya's (691/1292-751/1350) thought and the relevance of their ideas to diverse Muslim societies. Investigating their positions in Islamic theology, philosophy and law, the contributions discuss a wide range of subjects, e.g. law and order; the divine compulsion of human beings; the eternity of eschatological punishment; the treatment of Sufi terminology; and the proper Islamic attitude towards Christianity. Notably, a section of the book is dedicated to analyzing Ibn Taymiyya's struggle for and against reason as well as his image as a philosopher in contemporary Islamic thought. Several articles present the influential legacy of both thinkers in shaping an Islamic discourse facing the challenges of modernity."--The publisher

7 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The concept of freedom in Judaism, Christianity and Islam by Christianity and Islam The Concept of Freedom and the Concept of Justice in Judaism( )

8 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The third volume of the series "Key Concepts of Interreligious Discourses" investigates the roots of the concept of freedom in Judaism, Christianity and Islam and its relevance for the present time. The idea of freedom in terms of personal freedoms, which include freedom of conscience, freedom of speech and bodily integrity, is a relatively new one and can in some aspects get into conflict with religious convictions. At the same time, freedom as an emancipatory power from outer oppression as well as from inner dependencies is deeply rooted in Judaism, Christianity and Islam. It is still a vital concept in religious and non-religious communities and movements. The volume presents the concept of freedom in its different aspects as anchored in the traditions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. It unfolds commonalities and differences between the three monotheistic religions as well as the manifold discourses about freedom within these three traditions. The book offers fundamental knowledge about the specific understanding of freedom in each one of these traditions, their interdependencies and their relationship to secular interpretations

The Trias of Maimonides : Jewish, Arabic, and ancient culture of knowledge = Die Trias des Maimonides by Georges Tamer( )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jewish religion, Greek philosophy and Islamic thought mold the philosophy and theology of Maimonides and characterize his work as an excellent example of the fruitful transfer of culture in the Middle Ages. The authors show various aspects of this cultural cross-fertilization, despite religious and ethnic differences. The studies prompt thoughts on a question which is important for the present and the future: How may the different religions, cultures and concepts of knowledge continue to be conveyed in synthesis? The volume publishes the lectures given at the July 2004 international congress at the occasion of the 800th anniversary of Maimonides’ death
Die Koranhermeneutik von Günter Lüling( Book )

9 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in German and English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present volume offers the first scholarly discussion of Günter Lüling's (1928-2014) work. Lüling's views, long passages of the Qur'an are originally mere reworking of pre-Islamic Christian hymns have not received the scholarly attention they deserve, since they were published at the beginning of the 70s of the previous century. Lüling attempted to reconstruct an "Ur-Qur'an" in order to show that Islam emerged in a Christian context in Mecca. He also believed that Muhammad converted from Trinitarian Christianity to paganism and that the Kaaba was a church. Lüling's hermeneutical approach to the Qur'an and other Arabic sources on early Islam is, for the first time, the subject of the studies included in the present book. In addition, the volume offers interesting insights in the law case which accompanied the publication of Lüling's work

The history of the Qur'an by Theodor Nöldeke( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in Arabic and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This first complete translation of Theodor Nöldeke's The History of the Qurʼān offers a foundational work of modern Qurʼānic studies to the English-speaking public. Nöldeke's original publication, as revised and expanded over nearly three quarters of a century by his scholarly successors, Friedrich Schwally, Gotthelf Bergsträsser and Otto Pretzl, remains an indispensable resource for any scholarly work on the text of the Qurʼān. Nöldeke's segmentation of the surahs into three Meccan periods and a Medinan one has shaped all subsequent discussions of the chronology of the Qurʼān. The revisions and expansions of Nöldeke's initial discussions of the orthography and variant readings of the text have found a new audience among those contemporary scholars who seek to create a more sophisticated understanding of the Qurʼān's textual development"--Back cover
