Abstract:
Using Qur'án 4:156-7 as an example, classical tafsīr, “scholastic" exegesis, has not always taken account of the way all Muslims understand the Quranic text. Other understandings may be found in poetry, philosophy, mysticism and even historical writing.
Notes:
Presented at the "New Approaches to Qur'an and Exegesis" conference at the Center for Global Islamic Studies at George Mason University, Virginia.
