    Real Talk with Dr. Andreas Görke:  Isnad-Cum-Matn - An Academic Approach to Dating Hadīth

    With Muslims the subject of hadīth has been a continuous study since the first century of Islam; whilst the academic (or what some would call the Western Orientalist) study of hadīth only began in the middle of the nineteenth century. But in the last 40 years or so, academic scholarship has begun to take stock of not just the authenticity of what is reported in hadith but also of their origins and mode of transmission.  Those two aspects of hadith—origins and transmission—carries us into the topic of Isnad-Cum-Matn analysis, which is an academic approach to dating.

    Our guest Dr. Andreas Görke is a Senior Lecturer in Islamic Studies at the University of Edinburgh but has also worked as lecturer and researcher at the Universities of Hamburg and Basel, the Social Science Research Center Berlin (WZB), Freie Universität Berlin, and the University of Kiel, and served as acting professor for early and classical Islam at the University of Hamburg.

    His research interests include early Islamic history and historiography, the life of the Prophet Muhammad, Koran and Koranic exegesis, Hadith, Islamic law, the transmission of Arabic manuscripts, Islam in its late antique environment and the impact of modernity on Muslim thought.

    Quote
    Recent years have seen new waves of research in Syriac studies, the medieval Middle East, and family history. Combining all three, Lev Weitz’s Between Christ and Caliph: Law, Marriage, and Christian Community in Early Islam (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2018), revisits the early years of Islamic civilization by looking at an oft-neglected population in the secondary literature, Syriac Christians. Weitz’s study uses marital practice from the seventh through tenth centuries to illustrate how Islamic law influenced the development of Christian law and the role religious authorities –that is the Christian bishops– had to play in it. We talk through polygamy, confessional boundaries, and what households meant now and then; Weitz also fills us in on what the growing field of Syriac studies looks like, how it is changing, and how a scholar of the medieval Middle East gets their sources.

    Zayde Antrim - Review of Harry Munt, The Holy City of Medina


    Thanks  for that link on the review of    Harry Munt book The Holy City of Medina: Sacred Space in Early Islamic Arabia.     .. indeed one must read that book if we are trying to inquire the origins of these towns .. Mecca and Medina,..


    Quote
    This is the first book-length study of the emergence of Medina, in modern Saudi Arabia, as a widely venerated sacred space and holy city over the course of the first three Islamic centuries (the seventh to ninth centuries CE). This was a dynamic period that witnessed the evolution of many Islamic political, religious and legal doctrines, and the book situates Medina's emerging sanctity within the appropriate historical contexts. The book focuses on the roles played by the Prophet Muhammad, by the Umayyad and early Abbasid caliphs and by Muslim legal scholars. It shows that Medina's emergence as a holy city, alongside Mecca and Jerusalem, as well as the development of many of the doctrines associated with its sanctity, was the result of gradual and contested processes, and was intimately linked with important contemporary developments concerning the legitimation of political, religious and legal authority in the Islamic world.

    In this video I interview scholar and friend Dr. Tommaso Tesei. Dr. Tesei is an Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Duke Kunshan University. Prior to this he was a Patricia Crone Member in Residence at the Institute for Advanced Study. He was also previously a Polonsky Research Fellow at the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute in Jerusalem. Dr. Tesei received his PhD at the La Sapienza University of Rome and works on matters relation to Late Antiquity, the Rise of Islam, and the Qur'an's interaction with Syriac Literature.

    In this interview we discuss the Alexander Legend in the Qur'an. The Alexander Legend is a Late Antique Christian legend which also finds its way into the Qur'an under the name of Dhu-l-Qarnayn. We also discuss the possibility of multiple authorship for the Qur'an, as well as the extent of Christian activity in the Hijaz.

    Scripts and Scripture: Writing and Religion in Arabia circa 500–700 CE

    https://oi.uchicago.edu/research/publications/lamine/lamine-3-scripts-and-scripture-writing-and-religion-arabia-circa-500
    Quote
    How did Islam’s sacred scripture, the Arabic Qurʾān, emerge from western Arabia at a time when the region was religiously fragmented and lacked a clearly established tradition of writing to render the Arabic language?

    The studies in this volume, the proceedings of a scholarly conference, address different aspects of this question. They include discussions of the religious concepts found in Arabia in the centuries preceding the rise of Islam, which reflect the presence of polytheism and of several varieties of monotheism including Judaism and Christianity. Also discussed at length are the complexities surrounding the way languages of the Arabian Peninsula were written in the centuries before and after the rise of Islam—including Nabataean and various North Arabian dialects of Semitic—and the gradual emergence of the now-familiar Arabic script from the Nabataean script originally intended to render a dialect of Aramaic.

    The religious implications of inscriptions from the pre-Islamic and early Islamic centuries receive careful scrutiny. The early coalescence of the Qurʾān, the kind of information it contains on Christianity and other religions that formed part of the environment in which it first appeared, the development of several key Qurʾānic concepts, and the changing meaning of certain terms used in the Qurʾān also form part of this rich volume.

    He became nothing Yeez. People have been framed by his PhD dissertation (Seeing...) under the supervision of Crone.  'Seeing...' is (just) a compilation of texts with (very) few commentaries. Nothing else. People believed that it has made him a disciple a Crone. They were wrong. He was always ambiguous ;  that is why people have been fooled, he praised many times Crone, etc. He could tell that it is because she was his supervisor, etc. The (real) fact is that he has (never) questioned the traditional narrative. Never. He is a Great Believer like the others.

Prior to this he was an Andrew Mellon Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton NJ and an Assistant Professor in the Department of History at the University of Oregon. Dr. Anthony got his A.M. and Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in Near Eastern Languages and Cultures, specializing in Islamic Thought and Early Islamic History. He is the author of many academic articles and books, his most recent book "Muhammad and the Empires of Faith" has already become quite popular within Islamic Studies.

    In this talk we discuss Sean's new book as well as the materials for the study of early Islamic history, and Muhammad himself. We talk about how Roman crucifixion remained as a practice into late antiquity and with the medieval Arab empires and how all of this sheds light on the Qur'an and Early Islam.

    Stephen Shoemaker - Creating the Qur’an: A Historical-Critical Study

    https://www.ucpress.edu/book/9780520389038/creating-the-quran
    Quote
    Creating the Qur’an presents the first systematic historical-critical study of the Qur’an’s origins, drawing on methods and perspectives commonly used to study other scriptural traditions. Demonstrating in detail that the Islamic tradition relates not a single attested account of the holy text’s formation, Stephen J. Shoemaker shows how the Qur’an preserves a surprisingly diverse array of memories regarding the text’s early history and its canonization. To this he adds perspectives from radiocarbon dating of manuscripts, the linguistic history of Arabic, the social and cultural history of late ancient Arabia, and the limitations of human memory and oral transmission, as well as various peculiarities of the Qur’anic text itself. Considering all the relevant data to present the most comprehensive and convincing examination of the origin and evolution of the Qur’an available, Shoemaker concludes that the canonical text of the Qur’an was most likely produced only around the turn of the eighth century.
