Goldziher, the greatest Islamicist of his day, and one of the most profound and original scholars in Europe in an age that produced veritable giants in this field, is presented here with what he considered his great opus, first published in 1920 in Leiden. Since his study tour in the East, 1873-1874, he had such a command of Arabic so as to discuss matters of dogmatics, fiqh, poetry, and syntax with local scholars. The work is largely based on his study and translation of Arabic primary sources. He treats the evolution of the science of tafsir from its most elementary stage, the 'Uthmanic' recension, down to early twentieth century interpretations of Rashid Rida and Syed Ameer Ali, touching upon dogmatics, asceticism, mysticism as well as rationalism. The translator, an old hand at translating Goldziher, displays a sensible, pragmatic attitude towards the considerable problem presented by Goldziher’s style.
