Workshop: Intertextuality in Islamic and Jewish Law, June 21-23, 2022, University of Muenster
June 21 - June 23
From the organizers:
Our workshop aims at exploring different kinds of intertextuality and focusses, on the one hand, on the functions that intertextual references fulfill in Jewish legal texts such as responsa, Codes, and Classic Rabbinic literature, and works of Islamic jurisprudence (fiqh), responsa (fatāwā), legal treatises (rasāʾil) and commentaries (šurūḥ). On the other hand, it is intended to analyze how legal discourse enters the purely literary realm through the mention of legal utterances and theological principles into purely literary genres, with reference to the nature of legal intertextuality and its aesthetic use.
