Maxime Sellin obtained a BA degree in Arabic, literature and civilization at the University of Toulouse Jean Jaures. His formation and curiosity led him to study the history of the Balearic Islands during the Middle Ages and Islamic theology. He obtained a Master’s degree in History at the University of Le Mans. He wrote his dissertation on San Clemente of Toledo, a royal mozarabic nunnery between the 12th and the 13th centuries.
Currently, he is studying the Qur’an of Bellus, a manuscript copied in 1518 near Valencia. This manuscript contains many annotations in different languages which can be studied from different points of view (historical, theological, linguistical).
