AUC Press's Description
The study of Islamic tradition which began in the last third of the seventh century, relied predominantly on oral communication between teacher and student, although writing was already an integral part of this process, and it was the genesis of one of the richest literatures of late antiquity and the middle ages. Here Gregor Schoeler explains how this change— from predominantly oral to written—came about. In particular, he explains how the tension between oral and written resulted in a creative coexistence.
