Many fine scholars are currently publishing books and articles about Qur'anic Text and Commentary. This Fall and Winter I would like to describe some of the articles I am reading, and to focus particular issues for discussion. I invite you to interact with these articles as well, and to freely post your thoughts below each blog.

In July 2015 a report about two pages from an early Qur'an manuscript appeared on the BBC website. The two pages came from within another manuscript at the Birmingham (UK) University library.
Interest in the two pages focused on the carbon 14 dating of the parchment.
At the same time there were a number of curious features of the BBC report, credited to reporter Sean Coughlan.
