The Greek Qur’an: Scholarship and evaluations
2012 (English)In: Orientalia Suecana, ISSN 0078-6578, Vol. 61, no Supplement, 173-181 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The early Greek translation of the Qur’an has received little notice, not least due to the many claims that it was a faulty and inadequate attempt of rendering the Qur’an into Greek. This article argues that the faults are very few and minor, and that the early translation (from before 870 CE) should instead be read as a serious example of early Qur’anic interpretation as well as a documentation of early Greek readership of the Qur’an.
