Chapter Summary

This chapter provides a brief summary of the research carried out until now on the figure of Mary in the Qur'an. In the main part, Suleiman Mourad's and Samir Khalil Samir's analyses of the pertinent Qur'anic texts from Q 19 and Q 3 are discussed and their methodologies are revisited. Then, the religious-political and Mariological aspects of the texts are discussed. The chapter also reconsiders the Qu'anic texts and reviews previous methods of working with intertexts. It is hoped that the hermeneutical assumptions applied in the chapter might suggest ways to avoid some of the extremes and the thematic methods of past inquiries into the presumed foreign influences on the Qur'an. The author embarks on a more hypothetical venture, i.e., discovers clues pointing to debates about the person of Mary that the Qur'anic community might have engaged in.

Keywords: Mary; Qu'anic texts; Samir Khalil Samir; Suleiman Mourad
