Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled The Qurʾā in Context: Historical and Literary Investigations into the Qurʾānic Milieu contains the table of contents. The contributions assembled in the first part of the book addresses various general aspects of the Qurʾān's political, economic, linguistic, and cultural context that are vital for any close textual reading of the Qurʾān itself. The remaining articles of the first part then focus on the Qurʾān's linguistic and literary context. The second part focuses more specifically on the Qurʾān itself and on its transmission history. It starts out with the issue of chronology, a topic of obvious importance for any evolutionary, and hence historical, study of the Qurʾān.

Keywords: linguistic context; literary context; Qurʾān
