Platform: Zoom
Continuing the historical setting for the Qur'an, Lecture 3, The Qur'an Becomes a Book, explains that Muhammad, like most of the people in 7th-century Mecca, was illiterate. What challenges of interpretation for modern scholars are presented by translation from oral tradition to written text, and again from that text into other languages? Was anything lost (or added) in translation between the death of Muhammad and the first canonized text of the Qur’an two hundred years later? 
In Lecture 4,  From Mecca to Medina: The Revelation Transforms, we learn how the Meccan verses are both radical and evangelical—an economic and cultural threat to Mecca, but also statements of a powerful ideology defining Allah as sole creator and ultimate judge. Later verses of Medina focus, as did Muhammad, on the development of an enduring and cohesive community of diverse peoples, eventually uniting much of the Arabian Peninsula. In these origins of the revelation is where the history of Islam is born.
Each lecture is 25-30 minutes and we will take time for discussion and comments among the group after each lecture
Questions about the lectures can be directed to Saul Rapkin .
