In his contribution the comparative theologian Klaus von Stosch will develop an aesthetic access to the Qur’anic which allows the Qur’anic claim to unconditionality to be formulated in such a way that it simultaneously withstands the questions of reason and has important things to say to Christians. At the same time, Qur’anic aesthetic hermeneutics opens up a definition of the relationship between revelation and reason which is in harmony with the Islamic tradition and also up to date, and which can be reconstructed within the framework of a dialogic-communicative understanding of revelation. But does this mean that the Qur'an might be a word of God also for Christians? Is it possible to see something divine even in those passages which seem to contradict Christianity? The talk wants to explore possible responses to these questions with a special focus on the Qur'anic treatment of Jesus Christ.
