6. Description Abstract Since the first third of the 20th century, modernist intellectuals have proposed and developed new paradigms of Qurʾānic exegesis. These include the attempt to read the Qurʾān in the light of higher aims or overarching principles (maqāṣid), the historical contextualisation of its message and terminology and the application of methods from the field of literary studies. The chapter gives an overview of these interpretive approaches and the new exegetical genres they have brought forth. It also outlines some of the areas of continuing struggle, both among modernists and between modernists and their opponents – not least with regard to the Sunna, the second main source of Islamic belief and practice.
