May 2009

An Anthology of Qur’anic Commentaries - Volume I: On the Nature of the Divine was launched at the Institute on 23 April, 2009. The book, published in association with Oxford University Press, is part of the IIS’ Qur’anic Studies series and aims to illustrate the wide ranging diversity of Qur’anic interpretations in the Muslim intellectual tradition.

The book launch took place at the Institute’s new premises in Euston and was attended by scholars from across the United Kingdom. Speakers at the event included the editors of the volume, Feras Hamza, Sajjad Rizvi and Farhana Mayer, as well as the Academic Co-ordinator of Qur’anic Studies at the IIS, Omar Ali-de-Unzaga. The editors discussed the inspiration for the book, the background research it required and the likely use of this book in a teaching environment. The book will be a valuable resource in a variety of contexts, especially those in the academic sphere.
