For a historian, or a sociologist or an anthropologist, what determines the sacred nature of a text?

At all times, texts having a sacred nature and origin and connection with divine forces were of particular value for historians, sociologists, scientists, and researchers. Thus, for example, the Qur’an acts as the holy book of Muslims and the divine teaching for many peoples. This is the source of the divine revelation of the entire history of humankind, which God carefully guards. Muslims also believe that the words recorded in the book were transmitted by the angel Jabrail.
