Description

This volume is the first trilateral exploration of medieval scriptural interpretation. The vast literature written during the medieval period is one of both great diversity and numerous cross-cultural similarities. These essays explore this rich heritage of biblical and qur'anic interpretation.

Editorial Reviews

"Indispensable ... deserves an honored place on the shelves of public and private research libraries everywhere."--Catholic Biblical Quarterly

"This volume would serve as a wonderful course book for undergraduates and graduates, one that illustrates both the signal differences and the surprising parallels within and among the three Abrahamic traditions of scriptual exegisis.--Speculum

"A rich feast ... the three 'courses' of the book offer significant contributions to our understanding of exegesis in each specific tradition."--Journal of the American Academy of Religion
