Islamochristiana 33 (2007), 15-22
First lines of the introduction
“This first contribution is not a study per se. It presents itself only as an introduction to the monographic section of this issue of Islamochristiana devoted to the theme “Faith and hermeneutics”. The articles that make up it fit into the theme; however, the latter is so vast and complex that it emerges barely touched in its many components. Islamochristiana proposes to resume it periodically, in the coming years. Moreover, experts in Christianity and Islam are very familiar with all the discussions relating to the concept of “faith” and are quite aware of the importance of hermeneutics in contemporary thought.
Premières lignes de l’introduction
“Cette première contribution n’est pas une étude proprement dite. Elle se présente seulement comme une introduction à la section monographique du présent numéro d’Islamochristiana consacrée au thème “Foi et herméneutique”. Les articles qui la composent entrent de plain-pied dans le thème ; cependant, ce dernier est tellement vaste et complexe qu’il en ressort à peine effleuré dans se nombreuses composantes. Islamochristiana se propose de le reprendre périodiquement, au cours des prochaines années. D’ailleurs, les experts en christianisme et en islam connaissent fort bien toute les discussions relatives au concept de “foi” et sont tout à fait conscients de l’importance de l’herméneutique dans la pensée contemporaine.”
