Freie Universität Berlin, Berlin, Germany, 5–7 December 2018
The workshop 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 Qur’an 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.
