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.
