The Partial Eclipse of Seven Full Moons
Main Article Content
The main ideas and critical theses of Shady Nasser’s substantial recent book are here critically discussed and evaluated. The book offers many contributions to the field, but I note a few debatable instances where the author’s data are open to interpretations other than those he has concluded. An excursus contains a detailed discussion on the reliability of the eponymous quranic reciters, a topic that, I argue, the book does not treat adequately.
