Oliver Salem
PhD Candidate - Naples

Oliver Salem is a PhD candidate at the University of Naples “L’Orientale”. His interest concerning Arabic manuscripts conserved in Europe, in particular those of the Bibliothèque nationale de France (BnF), started during his Erasmus + activity at Sorbonne Université in Paris which led to the redaction of his master’s thesis in Qurʾānic codicology and paleography. His PhD dissertation points to continuing this work and shed light on the late-medieval Qurʾānic manuscripts which have never been studied if not for artistic purposes.
