Literature and the Sacred by Shahab Ahmed

Book Description

This collection examines the relationship between literary discourses and ideas of the sacred in different cultures and epochs. Contributors by established and emerging scholars from the Arab world, South Asia, Europe, and North America examine issues such as the treatment of the sacred in literary texts and traditions, the literary dimensions of sacred texts, the impact of the sacred on literary imagination, the role of the literary in sacred experience, and the contestation between literature and the sacred over the constitution of cultural and social norms.

Before Orthodoxy by Shahab Ahmed Before Orthodoxy, Hardback (April 2017)

A controversial episode in the life of the Prophet Muhammad concerns an incident in which he allegedly mistook words suggested by Satan as divine revelation. Muslims now universally deny that the Satanic verses incident took place. But Muslims did not always hold this view. Shahab Ahmed uses this case to explore how religions establish truth.
