The ERC Synergy Grant project ‘The European Qur’an’ is delighted to announce its forthcoming workshop “Jews, the Qur’an and Islam: Contacts and Influences” which will take place on the 1st to the 2d of February 2023 in Copenhagen. This workshop aims to explore how Jews approached the Qur’an and Islam from the Middle Age to the early modern period both in the lands of Islam and in Europe. Through various sources and textual genres ranging from polemics, exegesis to Qur’anic translations, we will discuss how Islam was perceived, how the Qur’an was used and how the Jews in some contexts were influenced by the material, textual and theological aspects of the Islamic tradition. The workshop will try to reflect the variety of the Jewish engagement with Islam and the Qur’an, which far from being monolithic, expressed in different ways across time and space.
