Abstract

literatur/reviews 143 of the first part of the Refutation in Anti-Christian Polemic in Early Islam. Ab¢ {μs¸ al- Warr¸q’s “Against the Trinity” (University of Cambridge Oriental Publications no. 45, Cambridge, 1992). In the present volume the author has taken “the opportu- nity to add extra details about Ab¢ {μs¸’s life to those given in the earlier work… and to place the Refutation against the background of contemporary Muslim and Christian debates about the Incarnation and the person of Christ” (X). The pre- cision of the editorial work and the clarity of the translation equal, or even surpass, that of his Anti-Christian Polemic of 1992. The substantial introduction of 80 pages in four chapters masterfully discusses the place of Christians and Muslims in early Islamic society; Ab¢ {μs¸ al-Warr¸q as a scholar of religions; the doctrine of the Incarnation in Ab¢ {μs¸’s time and, finally, key questions around the Incarnation. In his discussion of Ab¢ {Is¸’s scholarly method, Thomas shows one of the striking features of Ab¢ {Is¸’s work to be that he “includes no explicit references to the Qur’an or Islamic teachings, but rather attempts to argue from within the Chris- tian positions themselves, drawing inferences from the
