Digital Qur'an MSS Tweet

Tweet about digital Qur'an mss in the Vatican

Tweet from Eléonore Cellard: "The Qur’anic manuscripts kept in the Vatican Library are now digitalized ( ). In addition to .1605 and 1606 (de Marinis coll.), 2 other fragments have now been identified: .1784 (from the ‘Amr mosque) and 1785."
I have a chapter on digital Qur'ans coming out soon in the Routledge Companion to the Qur'an. I also write about this in Hashtag Islam. Check out Bruce Lawrence's book on the Koran in English for discussion of this subject too.
