The Formation of the Classical Tafsīr Tradition (Walid SALEH)

SALEH (Walid A.), The formation of the classical Tafsīr tradition : the qurʾān commentary of al-Thaʿlabī (d.427/1035), Leiden/Boston, Brill, ("Texts and studies on the Quran ; 1"), 2004, X+267 p. Bibliogr, Index. ISBN 90-04-12777-1


Walid A. Saleh, Ph.D. (2001) in Religious Studies, Yale University, is Assistant Professor of Religion at the University of Toronto. He is a specialist on tafsīr and the Qurʾān.


This work is both an introduction to the genre of classical tafsīr and a detailed study of one of its major architects, al-Thaʿlabī (d. 427/1035). The book offers a detailed study of the hermeneutical principles that governed al-Thaʿlabī’s approach to the Qurʾān, principles which became the norm in later exegetical works. It is divided into three main sections ; the first outlines the life and times of the author ; the second is a detailed study of his major exegetical work, al-Kashf ; the third charts a brief history of the genre of tafsīr through documenting the reactions of later exegetes to al-Kashf. This work brings together material never examined before and tries to offer a new way of understanding the history of classical Qurʾān exegesis.
