The Qur'an in European culture and religious history
The Qur'an is the sacred scripture of Islam – the Holy Book. It plays a fundamental role in debates between Christians, interactions with Islam and critiques of Christianity. The EU-funded EuQu project has set out to uncover how the Qur'an influenced Europe's culture and religion between 1150 and 1850. To do this, the project will conduct research into how the Qur'an was translated, interpreted, adapted and used in Christian Europe as well as how it was embedded in intellectual, religious and cultural history. Moreover, it aims to develop a GIS-mapped database of the European Qur'an, produce a series of publications and hold a major exhibition during the project's final year.
