Tradition and Criticism of Tradition in Judaism, Christianity and Islam
From different research perspectives of a number of various disciplines, the volume examines the interplay between tradition and criticism of tradition in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, an interplay that has significantly shaped the development of the three religions. The contributions focus on the diverse historical and contemporary manifestations of criticism of tradition, as well as on the dynamic processes that led to such criticism, and they illustrate that criticism of religious traditions can become an integral part of tradition itself.
