Chair of Islamic-Religious Studies with the Focus Text Analysis and Jurisprudence

As part of the Chair of Islamic-Religious Studies with a focus on textual discourse and analysis, the relevant thematic priorities of theological text hermeneutics represent the rich Islamic theological tradition with regard to the epistemological process of religious norm formation in teaching and research. This research field addresses fundamental questions of traditional exegetical approaches in the process of theological derivation of norms from the revelation sources of Islam. Here, the phases of the history of ideas and the presuppositions of normative basic concepts of Qur’an and Hadith hermeneutics with regard to the change in the way Muslims live are at the center of the interest of textual research.
