The Arts and Humanities Research Council-funded Christian-Muslim Relations project team at the University of Birmingham warmly invite you to its first public lecture, to be delivered by Professor Alastair Hamilton (School of Advanced Study, University of London). In early modern Europe the Qur'an was the victim of prejudice and the beneficiary of curiosity. The lecture explores the various reasons for translating it and the obstacles the translators encountered when having their translations published.
