This online course will illustrate how the Qur’an situates itself as part of, and as a correction to, the religious discourse of the Jewish and Christian communities of Late Antique Arabia.
The course will use the Qur’an, as well as Jewish and Christian historical documents, to reconstruct the religious landscape to which the Muslim scripture reacts in a pointed, precise and nuanced way.
This will give you a historically more informed understanding of nascent Islam, and will allow you to reconsider many of the theological and cultural tenets of Late Antique Judaism and Christianity.
