The series Documenta Coranica is dedicated to the study of history of the Qurʾānic text as manifested in manuscripts and other sources. Documenta Coranica publishes witnesses of the Qurʾān from the early period in the shape of facsimile, accompanied by transcription and a commentary. The series makes codices on parchment, papyri, inscriptions, variant readings and other relevant sources for the history of the Qurʾān, accessible to the academic public. The first volumes contain manuscript fragments from Sanaa (DAM 01-25.1, DAM 01-27.1, DAM 01-29.1), the manuscript Ma VI 165 (Tübingen), and the codex Or. 2165 of the British Library.


The series comprises two sections: Manuscripta contains facsimile editions of Qurʾānic manuscripts with a line-by-line transcript in Modern Arabic script on the opposite page and a commentary about codicology, paleography, variant readings and verse numbering explaining content and characteristics of each manuscript. Testimonia et Studia contains studies about material evidence for the history of the Qurʾān, as manifested on papyrus, stone and rock inscriptions etc., as well in exegetical, narrative and philological sources.


Documenta Coranica inscribes itself into a German-French cooperation: in the framework of the research project Coranica, 2011-2014, and Paleocoran 2015-2018, both funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft and the Agence Nationale de la Recherche.

The Qur'ān is the primary religious text for one-sixth of the world’s population. Understood by Muslims to contain God's own words, it has been an object of reverence and of intense study for centuries. The thousands of volumes that Muslim scholars have devoted to qur'ānic interpretation and to the linguistic, rhetorical and narrative analysis of the text are sufficient to create entire libraries of qur'ānic studies.

Drawing upon a rich scholarly heritage, Brill's Encyclopaedia of the Qur'ān (EQ) combines alphabetically-arranged articles about the contents of the Qur'ān. It is an encyclopaedic dictionary of qur'ānic terms, concepts, personalities, place names, cultural history and exegesis extended with essays on the most important themes and subjects within qur'ānic studies. With nearly 1000 entries in 5 volumes, the EQ is the first comprehensive, multi-volume reference work on the Qur'ān to appear in a Western language.

Cross-referencing and indices
Frequent cross-references will draw readers to related entries and each article will conclude with a citation of relevant bibliography. The final volume of the EQ will contain indices of transliterated terms, of qur'ānic references and of the authors and exegetes cited in the entries and essays.

Fully international work
The EQ is a fully international work supported by an international board of advisors. Scholars from many nations have written articles for the encyclopaedia.

Encyclopaedia of the Qur’ān is also available online, visit www.brill.com/eqo for more information. There are yearly updates for the online version with new articles.

It is a unique and invaluable reference tool, an essential key to understanding the world of Islam, and the authoritative source not only for the religion, but also for the believers and the countries in which they live.
It embraces articles on distinguished Muslims of every age and land, on tribes and dynasties, on the crafts and sciences, on political and religious institutions, on the geography, ethnography, flora and fauna of the various countries and on the history, topography and monuments of the major towns and cities. In its geographical and historical scope it encompasses the old Arabo-Islamic empire, the Islamic countries of Iran, Central Asia, the Indian sub-continent and Indonesia, the Ottoman Empire and all other Islamic countries.

Encyclopédie de l'Islam

Edited by Bosworth, Heinrichs, Lecomte and E.J. van Donzel

L'Encyclopédie de l'Islam, ouvrage collectif de grande envergure, présente l'état actuel des connaissances que nous possédons sur le monde musulman. Cet ouvrage comprend des notices sur des Musulmans qui se sont distingués de façon quelconque en toute époque et terre, sur les tribus et les dynasties, sur l'activité artisanale et les sciences, sur les institutions politiques et religieuses, sur la géographie, l'ethnologie, la flore et la faune des divers pays, et sur l'histoire, la topographie et les monuments des principales villes et cités. On y trouve également des articles sur la terminologie religieuse, philosophique et scientifique - à vrai dire, sur chaque aspect de la culture musulmane depuis le temps du Prophète à nos jours. Touchant la géographie et l'histoire, l'Encyclopédie de l'Islam s'occupe de l'ancien Empire arabo-islamique, des états musulmans d'Iran, d'Asie Centrale, des Indes et d'Indonésie, de l'Empire ottoman et des divers états et communautés musulmans partout dans le monde. C'est un instrument de travail sans égal, indispensable aux spécialistes qui étudieraient tous les sujets abordant ou relatifs au monde de l'Islam.

Cet ouvrage s'adresse aux Islamologues, aux étudiants dans les domaines de l'histoire et de la culture des peuples musulmans, et aux géographes et sociologues.
The Index Islamicus consists of the following publications:
Index Islamicus Online, the full-text searchable electronic database
Index Islamicus, the annual journal (print edition in 1 yearbook)
Index Islamicus Yearbooks, the annual yearbook (print edition available individually or as set)
Supplements to the Index Islamicus, specialized bibliographies in print

Index Islamicus is THE international classified bibliography of publications in European languages on all aspects of Islam and the Muslim world from 1906 onwards until present day. Material cited in the Index Islamicus includes not only work written about the Middle East, but also about the other main Muslim areas of Asia and Africa, plus Muslim minorities elsewhere. [The Index Islamicus is edited by Heather Bleaney, Pablo Garcia Suarez and Susan Sinclair]

Presently, Index Islamicus contains over 575,000 records, covering all the main Muslim areas of Asia and Africa, as well as Muslims living elsewhere, and their history, beliefs, societies, cultures, languages and literatures. It includes material published by Western scholars in the fields of Humanities and Social Sciences, specialist area- and subject-based areas, and by Muslims writing in European languages. Publications recorded are in the form of articles, books and reviews. All essays and papers contained in multi-author volumes are recorded, classified and indexed separately.

Periodicals
Over 3,000 journals are surveyed for inclusion in the database, together with conference proceedings, monographs, and multi-authored works. Journals and books are indexed down to the article and chapter level. Newspapers, news magazines, and government or official “grey” literature are excluded. Reviews from specialist periodicals in the field, and some relevant reviews from selected other titles are listed by title of work under review.

Classification
The well-known Index Islamicus classification scheme, uniquely and carefully geared to the field of Islamic Studies, allows one to quickly find all literature headed under a particular, broader subject area (e.g., Education, Philosophy, Shi’ism, Sudan, Palestine, Israel, as well as their subcategories).

Extensive indexes
Those who prefer more specific queries, have in the print edition at their disposal two elaborate indexes, facilitating quick and effective searches: the subject index guides the user to material on specialised subjects not covered by the classification scheme (e.g. Al-Azhar, mawlids, railways), and also to items relevant to one subject but classified under another. The name index lists not only authors, but also editors, translators, reviewers and personal subjects. So researchers interested in, for instance, Ibn Khaldun or Muhammad Iqbal or the Ayatollah Khomeini can quickly find publications both by and about them. The online edition offers a full text and advanced search opportunities.

Yearbooks
The annual yearbooks are published as part of the annual journal subscription, but are also available individually or as a set. It supersedes the issues published during a year, but also contains much data previously unpublished in Index Islamicus with additions from 1993 onwards.
