Expert on Qur’an and New Testament manuscripts Rev Dr Keith Small explains how the Qur’an came to be in its present form and the relationship between written and oral versions of the text.

Muslims believe that, in the Qur’an, the eternal word of God entered time and space as text. This idea has influenced the decoration of the Qur’an as well as the uses of the Qur’an in recitation, medicine and mediation with the unseen world. This talk explores these issues.

Small has a PhD in Islamics and New Testament studies and is a manuscript consultant to the Bodleian Library. He is author of Textual Criticism and Qu’ran Manuscripts, the first book-length application to Qu’ran manuscripts of textual criticism used in studies of the Bible and ancient Western literature.

Presented by the Bodleian Libraries.
