This reading group, convened by Rick Sopher and chaired by Dr Esther-Miriam Wagner, is anchored in a project which compares Torah portions of the week to the relevant Qur’anic passages. Matters discussed will include similarities and differences in biblical and Qur’anic narratives, infallibility of prophets, scriptural hostility, the availability of Jewish sources in Arabia in the 7th century and the benefits of studying one another’s scriptures.

In this session we will be joined by Prof. Shari Lowin.
