Description: 

This is a thematic survey of Sufi exegesis of the Qu'ran. The course explores Sufi metaphysics, hermeneutics, epistemology and practice as mediated through Sufi interactions with qur'anic meaning. Excerpts from the writings of a wide range of Sufis are analyzed in the context of relevant qur'anic verses. Academic contributions in the field of Sufism and Qur'anic Studies are used to investigate the genre of Sufi qur'anic exegesis, pertinent themes that inform Sufi theory and praxis, and the relationship of Sufi scriptural interpretations to qur'anic exegesis in the broader Islamic tradition.
