Islamicate Intellectual History

Studies and Texts in the Late Medieval and Early Modern Periods

Edited by Judith Pfeiffer, Shahzad Bashir and Heidrun Eichner

Islamicate Intellectual History is a peer-reviewed book series that includes monographs, collective volumes, critical editions, and annotated translations of texts pertaining to the 13th to 18th centuries, with a special focus on Islamicate intellectual history, including philosophy, theology, Sufism, the whole range of the so-called occult sciences, the theory of medicine, political thought, legal theory, and adjacent areas. Its aim is to provide a dedicated publication venue for these fields, and to encourage and promote the study of the intellectual history of this period in its social and political context. The series is open to works on the history of Islamic ideas in any part of the world.
Through its chronological focus on the later middle and early modern periods, the series aims at closing the gap between the much more extensively studied history of thought of early Islam on the one hand and that of the modern period on the other, opening up a crucial period to our view.
Recent cutting-edge research has demonstrated that the intellectual history of the later middle and early modern periods deserves to be studied in its own right, as it was marked by the protracted efforts of Muslim thinkers at a re-definition of the very core of Islam in the face of fundamentally changed socio-political realities from the aftermath of the Mongol conquests down to the formation of the early modern regional states of the Ottomans, Safavids and Mughals.
This series draws attention to and provides a publishing platform for the growing number of studies in the field (monographs, biographies, and collected volumes, including conference proceedings), and promotes the study of this period through the publication of primary sources that are otherwise difficult to access both in critical editions and through annotated translations.

The Qurʾān, the holy book of Islam proclaimed by Muḥammad, has formed the foundation of Islamic religion and society and provided an important basis for Islamic culture and politics. Texts and Studies on the Qurʾān seeks to publish a series of significant manuscripts, including monographs, textual editions, annotated translations, analytical and topical studies that address the full range of qurʾānic studies as presently articulated within contemporary research universities and institutes. Modes of inquiry and methodological perspectives may include, but are not limited to: philological studies (on grammar, linguistics, rhetoric and stylistics), historical-critical studies of early, classical and post-classical works of qurʾānic interpretation; interpretive inquiries into topics grounded in qurʾānic hermeneutics (e.g., God, prophets, this world and the hereafter, ritual and institutions); thematic and structural analyses of specific portions of the qurʾānic text; studies devoted to textual criticism and the history of the qur’ānic text; anthropological investigations of the social uses of the Qurʾān in various contexts both historical and in the present day; monographs of major Muslim commentaries on the Qurʾān; explorations of textual semantics and significance informed by the insights of contemporary literary and critical theory; inquiries into the impact of the Qur’ān on contemporary Islamic societies; explorations of the origins of the Qur’ān and its intercultural linkage with other Scriptures.

The series published an average of one volume per year over the last 5 years.

The Qur'ān 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'ānic interpretation and to the linguistic, rhetorical and narrative analysis of the text are sufficient to create entire libraries of qur'ānic studies.

Drawing upon a rich scholarly heritage, Brill's Encyclopaedia of the Qur'ān (EQ) combines alphabetically-arranged articles about the contents of the Qur'ān. It is an encyclopaedic dictionary of qur'ānic terms, concepts, personalities, place names, cultural history and exegesis extended with essays on the most important themes and subjects within qur'ānic studies. With nearly 1000 entries in 5 volumes, the EQ is the first comprehensive, multi-volume reference work on the Qur'ān to appear in a Western language.

Cross-referencing and indices
Frequent cross-references will draw readers to related entries and each article will conclude with a citation of relevant bibliography. The final volume of the EQ will contain indices of transliterated terms, of qur'ānic 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.

Encyclopaedia of the Qur’ān is also available online, visit for more information. There are yearly updates for the online version with new articles.

In Islam, philosophy, theology and science have interacted intimately almost from the beginning and played an important part in the intellectual history of Islam. For the historian of science and for the student of philosophy, the rich literature of Islamic philosophy, theology and science has preserved much unique material. This betrays the originality of scholars, who were inspired by Greek-Hellenistic culture and its absorption in an Christian and Islamic milieu.

This series provides an outlet for the results of research on these subjects and on the history of ideas in early Islam.
Philosophy was at the basis of much of intellectual life in the Islamic Middle Ages. The study of philosophy developed considerably, as did theology and the sciences. These have in turn been crucial to the development of intellectual history in Islamic countries until today. It may even be said that for any serious and comprehensive research into the history of thought inside and outside Europe, knowledge of the Islamic sources is indispensable. Owing to the lack of printed editions of many of these Islamic sources, however, the edition and study of texts on islamic philosophy, theology and science is still a rather neglected field of research.

The present series is intended to fill this need, making the field accessible through the publication of text editions, annotated translations, collaborative volumes, handbooks, and studies of individual concept, of the lives and thought of individual historical figures, etc. Volumes in the series place the subject in the context of relevant historical and intellectual developments of the time and, where desirable, against the background of their Greek, Syriac, or Iranian origins.

The series published an average of three volumes per year over the last 5 years.
