Notes

Abstract:
This presentation fills a void in the literature of the relatively obscure and unstudied Islamic interpretive genre of tafsir (scriptural exegesis). Oakes argues that while Islamic tradition initially held the genre in low regard, it ascended relative to other early genres and retained its authority among scholars even when threatened by the later development of kalam (theology) and falsafa (philosophy). Tafsir established itself by citing tradition, then ventured beyond traditionalism by including poetry, mysticism, grammatical analysis, and literary analysis. This flexibility prepared the genre to respond to the threats of colonialism then post-colonialism.
Venue:
Paper presented Feb. 22, 2008 during the Annual Sacred Leaves Graduate Symposium, held at the University of South Florida and organized by the Special Collections Dept. of the USF Tampa Library.
