Ömer Özsoy has been a professor of Qur’anic exegesis at the Department of Linguistics and Cultural Studies at Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main since 2009, and is also the director of the University’s Institute for Studies in the Culture and Religion of Islam. After studying theology, he received his doctorate from Ankara University in 1991 and taught there as a professor of Qur’anic exegesis at the Faculty of Theology from 2004 to 2006. In his historical-critical research that considers all historical sources from the time of Islam's origin, he explores the questions of how Islam came into being in the 7th century and how it has been perpetuated in subsequent centuries.
