Word of God Art of Man The Qur’an and its creative expression (Octobre 2003)

Presentation

The Holy Qur’an,the sacred text of all Muslims,continues to be memorised and recited aloud. It is also a work that has been copied by hand more than any other book in the Muslim world. The Holy Qur’an as the foundation of Muslim faith and practice has also played a vital role in Muslim civlisations as the inspiration for several art forms.

The aim of this international colloquium is to bring together scholars with
varied interests in the areas of architecture, metalwork, woodwork, numismatics, textiles, ceramics and anthropology, in addition to manuscripts, calligraphy and illumination, to discuss their research on the Qur’an as a source of artistic inspiration for the material culture of
Muslims from around the world and through the ages. All events are to be held at The Ismaili Centre, South Kensington, London. As places are limited, please register early to avoid disappointment. The final date for
registration is 20th September 2003.
