Nouvelles lectures du Coran

Michel Cuypers has written an article in which he responds to one of the critics of the rhetorical analysis applied to the Qur’an. El-Sayed Amin, professor at al-Azhar, offers an exegetical review regarding violence in the Qur’an. Jean-Louis Déclais presents a translation of the Surat al-Aʿrāf and shows the existence of midrashic processes. Mohammad-Ali Amir-Moezzi reports on the educational contribution made by imams on Surat al-Qadr. Geneviève Gobillot, following the inductive method of reading the Qur’an, addresses the issue of history and sacred geography in the Qur’an, using the example of Sodom. Finally, Mehdi Azaiez provides an analysis of the presence of a decisive rhetorical figure in the Qur’an, that of its addressee. Moreover, apart from the theme, Philippe Vallat has written a key article on Abu Bakr al-Rāzī.
