Dublin Core

Title

A Muslim Theologian in the Sectarian Milieu: Abd' al-Jabbar and the Critique of Christian Origins

Subject

Comparative Religion

Description

The present work discusses the work of the medieval Qadi 'Abd al-Jabbar who reinterpreted the Bible, Church history (especially the lives of Paul and Constantine) and Christian practice to argue that Christians changed the Islamic religion of Jesus. The author argues that 'Abd al-Jabbar's polemic is better understood as a response to his particular milieu and the on-going inter-religious debates of the medieval Islamic world.
