In Le Coran par lui-même, Anne-Sylvie Boisliveau provides a ground-breaking analysis of the way the Quran is the architect of its own image. A close analysis of its self-referential vocabulary shows that the Quran describes itself as a Scripture “in a Judeo-Christian style” which communicative function is stressed. By a triple discourse (on divine actions, on previous Scriptures such as the Bible and on prophethood), the Quran grants itself the monopoly of divine authority through revelation and pushes the listener/reader into a decisive submission.
