[Autom. eng. transl.] What is jihâd really? Having become synonymous with holy war in the West, the term actually has a far from univocal value. The present contribution, starting from the analysis of the semantic versatility of the term, examines the different interpretations that Muslim exegetes and scholars have given over the centuries, in order to explain the reasons for today's radicalization of military jihâd.
