Abstract

The present work is devoted to a study of conflicting interpretations which are divided between two main discourses: the first aims at removing sacredness from a religious text by a scientific reading, based on chronological argumentation, and the second aims at giving religious texts back their sacredness by confirming their celestial statute and under cover of all scientific research; The text keeps its secrets and its transcendences. The aim of this study is to go beyond the conflict this by a more thorough reading of patrimony in particular, in its different elements; According to Abu Zaïd confirmed excommunication judgements are not so frequent, and this conflict generally expresses the existence of a common subject, which gives rise to a susceptibility of the mind, even reason. Such is the case for religious texts. Here there is a frank invitation to reconcile reason and text, even if the western civilization has known a critical position towards religious practices, during a period of enlightenment. The fixing of modern rational values has shown the positions recommending a more open modernity on traditional sacredness (what is irrational, or myth) because this will allow Mankind to practise celebration rites in a period regulated by logical, rational and technical rules. This point of view necessitates an Arab thinker to adopt an arbitral position with an aim to appropriate various interpretations, to be able to surpass questions asked by Arab Renaissance thinkers and to open up to new problematical issues.
