Conférence international : « La Syrie omeyyade : un contexte pour le Coran ? », Univ. Strasbourg et en ligne (2-4 juin 2021)
Originating in similar but not identical linguistic, geographical, cultural, and religious contexts, Qur’an and Bible stand in a complex relationship to each other. They share stylistic, narrative and cultic features, but also differ in fundamental ways. The Qur’an invokes the Bible and Biblical stories repeatedly and positions itself in a relationship of confirmation and fulfillment to the Judeo-Christian tradition, occasionally amending what it claims was distorted and manipulated by Christians and Jews.
