This work explores the Quran, the first book of Islam, which has been studied closely in recent years. The three studies included offer different perspectives on how the Quran was written:

  1. The first study, by Karim Arezki, looks at the official version of the Koran, called "'Uthmanian" or the "Vulgate of 'Utman".
  2. The second study, by Mohammad Ali Amir-Moezzi, discusses the historical context in which the Quran was written, taking into account Shi'ite traditions often neglected in research.
  3. The third study, by Paul Neuenkirchen, addresses the question of Quranic eschatology (the study of final ends) and explores the relationships between the Quran and biblical texts.

These studies offer different insights into the creation and meaning of the Quran, making this book interesting for those who want to learn more about this aspect of Islamic culture.

Author: Karim Arezki, Mohammad Ali Amir-Moezzi and Paul Neuenkirchen
