International conference “The itinerant prophets. Rewritings, appropriations and metamorphoses of prophetic figures in Islamic sources”

At Institut du Monde Arabe and Sorbonne Université, Paris

Bringing together scholars of Islam studies, literature and history, ‘The Itinerant Prophets’ aims to shed new light on the place prophets hold in the various fields of premodern Arab scholarship. From the Qur’an to universal histories, from the hadith to the mirrors of princes and from the qaṣaṣ al-anbiyāʾ to the novels of chivalry, the work will contribute to the de-partitioning of studies on the sources of premodern Islam while exploring the functions that the prophetic figure fulfils and the transformations it undergoes in each context addressed.

Réunissant des spécialistes d’études islamologiques, littéraires et historiques, « Les prophètes itinérants » vise à jeter une lumière nouvelle sur la place qu’occupent les prophètes dans les différents champs des savoirs arabes prémodernes. Du Coran aux histoires universelles, du hadith aux miroirs des princes et du qaṣaṣ al-anbiyāʾ aux romans de chevalerie, les travaux contribueront au décloisonnement des études sur les sources de l’islam prémoderne tout en explorant les fonctions que remplit la figure prophétique et les transformations qu’elle subit dans chaque contexte abordé.
