The Qurʾān between Judaism and Christianity is a series of public lectures funded by the British Academy, hosted at The University of Nottingham, and co-sponsored by the Karimia Institute.

The series seeks to enhance the public understanding of the Qurʾān by focusing on the ways in which the Scripture of Islam relates to Judaism and to Christianity. On three days in autumn 2016, prominent and emerging academics from the UK, from mainland Europe, and from overseas will address how the Qurʾān relates to aspects of the two other “Abrahamic” traditions, ranging from Biblical narrative to theology and law. The talks will be followed by a response and a discussion. Attendance is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
