The study of Islamic scripture (including the Qur’an and Hadith) and Muslim theology are blossoming fields in the academy. Books in this series will focus on the scriptural sources, speculative theological discourses, and their points of contact.
The series will bring a diverse range of perspectives to the study of pre-modern and contemporary Islamic scripture and theology. This includes emerging sub-fields in Qur’anic studies such as a focus on the classical disciplines used to understand the Qur’an, hermeneutics and tafsir studies. In the area of Muslim theology there is a focus on important concepts, authors and schools, with an emphasis on constructive theological approaches from varying perspectives, for example in conversation with analytic or continental philosophy.
