FutureLearn: The Qur'an Between Judaism and Christianity

 with  Holger Zellentin

Explore the relationship between the Qur’an, Judaism and Christianity

This online course will illustrate how the Qur’an situates itself as part of, and as a correction to, the religious discourse of the Jewish and Christian communities of Late Antique Arabia.

The course will use the Qur’an, as well as Jewish and Christian historical documents, to reconstruct the religious landscape to which the Muslim scripture reacts in a pointed, precise and nuanced way.

This will give you a historically more informed understanding of nascent Islam, and will allow you to reconsider many of theological and cultural tenets of Late Antique Judaism and Christianity.

This course is open to anyone who is interested in the history of the Qu’ran. It will be of particular interest to educators, clerics, journalists, lawmakers or scholars.
