Paleo-Qur'anic Manuscripts: State of the FieldMay 4-6, 2017Central European University, Budapest

This conference aims systematically to take stock of the state of the field in Paleo-Qur'anic manuscript studies and assess its broader significance. The conference hopes to consider the new directions provided to the field of Qur'anic studies by the digital revolution, in terms of access to the manuscripts and tools for editing their texts, and by the new understanding of philology accruing from digital philology. The broader consequences of material discoveries for the history of the Paleo-Qur'anic text and for the early history of Paleo-Islam will complement more technical discussions and contributions to the conference.
