Abstract: During the history of Translation Studies (henceforth TS), numerous theorists have provided different models, procedures and theories of translation studies. A controversial aspect, however, goes to the methods and procedures applied in the translations of sacred texts such as The Quran or The Bible. The underlying reason for such debate might go back to the sensitivity of such texts. As an example, the French humanist Dolet was burned at the stake after being accused of blasphemy and condemned by the theological faculty of the Sorbonne University in 1546. The same happened to Tvndale and Wycliffe's works which were banned. Moreover, many other sad endings happened during the history of sacred text translation (as cited in Munday, 2008, p. 23).
