Mister Warrach has been working for two years with Brother Michel Cuypers to identify in the Qur’an the rhetoric forms that are specific to Semitic Literature. This method has been developed for the Bible during two and a half centuries by Christian scholars such as Roland Meynet, and it seeks to identify the writing and composition techniques that were used by the scribes of the ancient Semitic world, and so in order to understand the meaning of these writings better.
