Objectives of the Workshop
The workshop “Preliminary Considerations on the Corpus Coranicum Christianum. The Qur’an in Translation – A Survey of the State-of-the-Art” seeks to lay the groundwork for an interdisciplinary research project comparing all Christian translations of the Qur’an. Its goal is to gather and analyze, in a first step, all Greek, Syriac, and Latin translations of the Quran from the 7th century CE until the Early Modern period and to present the results to the scientific and broader public as a synoptic open-access digital edition.
The workshop is aiming at mapping out the different scholars and research traditions dealing with varied translations of the Qur’an and to facilitate further scientific exchange. It will also examine the possibilities of using methods in the Digital Humanities for building an annotated database of the Corpus Coranicum Christianum.
This workshop is sponsored by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft and the Freie Universität Berlin. For further information, please visit our website.
