The second volume of a world-renowned scholar's long-awaited Qur'an commentary, now available in English

Angelika Neuwirth's six-volume commentary, published originally in Germany, offers a historical and philological analysis of the form, structure, and semantic message of each of the 114 Qur'anic suras. It brings together the fruits of the past hundred years of scholarship and provides access to the aesthetic, theological, linguistic, and semantic background required to appreciate the novelty, force, and historical position of the Qur'an. Contextualizing the Qur'anic message in the broader world of late antiquity, it bridges the gap between the inner-Islamic scholarly world and the academy.

Skillfully translated by Samuel Wilder, this volume focuses on the early middle Meccan suras.
