Claude Gilliot i badania nad Koranem jako tekstem literackim

Claude Gillot (b. 1940) is a known French scholar of Arabic & Islamic studies, representative of the modern French school of Qur’anic studies, focusing on the oldest Arabic-Muslim writings. His academic investigations tackle the Qur’an as a literary text. Gillot seeks out its literary and ideological sources, explores its history and traditions of oral and written transmittance, using available scholarly methods. Finding expression in an exalted literary form, he sees in the Qur’an’s text a multidimensional end of a certain historical epoch (of the history of Arabs and, more broadly, mankind’s history) and coming anew to voice of certain supra-cultural ideas, motifs and universal spirituality that have been circulating in the Middle East for many centuries before
