Schriftvervalsing als thema in de islamitische polemiek tegen het jodendom

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Deals with the Islamic accusation that the Jews falsified passages of the Torah which do not coincide with the text of the Qur'an. They claim that the original Torah was destroyed, that the present one was written by the rabbis, that the original Torah revealed Muhammad as the true prophet, and that the Qu'ran is the only divine text now extant. Discusses two approaches in Islam: the moderate movement of the historian and commentator al-Tabari (838-923, Baghdad), and the radical movement of the Islamic theologian Ibn Hazm (994-1064, Spain) who had a strong influence on other theologians. Considers the latter's opinions to be a barrier against fruitful dialogue between Islam and Judaism or Christianity.
