Item description for Encyclopaedia of the Qur'n, Index Volume (Encyclopaedia of the Qur'an) by Jane Dammen McAuliffe...
The Qur'n is the primary religious text for one-sixth of the world's population. Understood by Muslims to contain God's own words, it has been an object of reverence and of intense study for centuries. The thousands of volumes that Muslim scholars have devoted to qur'nic interpretation and to the linguistic, rhetorical and narrative analysis of the text are sufficient to create entire libraries of qur'nic studies.
Drawing upon a rich scholarly heritage, Brill's Encyclopaedia of the Qur'n (EQ) combines alphabetically-arranged articles about the contents of the Qur'n. It is an encyclopaedic dictionary of qur'nic terms, concepts, personalities, place names, cultural history and exegesis extended with essays on the most important themes and subjects within qur'nic studies. With nearly 1000 entries in 5 volumes, the EQ is the first comprehensive, multi-volume reference work on the Qur'n to appear in a Western language.
Cross-referencing and indices
This final volume of the EQ contains indices of transliterated terms, of qur'nic references and of the authors and exegetes cited in the entries and essays.
Fully international work
The EQ is a fully international work supported by an international board of advisors. Scholars from many nations have written articles for the encyclopaedia.
