Sifre dating

More often than not, when reading English translations of the Qur'an, one gets the sense of reading a foreign language translated literally, and thus sentences come across in English in strange contortions, leading the reader to scratch his head and reread the surah over and over in frustration.For Muslims it is the infallible Word of God, a transcript of a tablet preserved in heaven, revealed to the Prophet Muhammad by the Angel Gabriel.The Quran in itself is a literary masterpiece, but is also one of the most influential books in the history of prophetic literature.Indeed, there is an imaginative energy flowing from the Bible to creative minds for centuries.A student of English literature who does not know the Bible does not understand a good deal of what is going on in what he reads: the most conscientious student would be continually misconstruing the implications, even the meaning.

Much of my critical thinking has turned on the double meaning of Aristotle's term anagnorisis, which can mean "discovery" or "recognition," depending on whether the emphasis falls on the novelty of the appearance or on its reappearance.
