Early Western Korans Online

Alternative Titles
Early Western Korans Online: Koran Printing in the West, 1537-1857
Description

This collection demonstrates the impact of the holy book of Islam in Europe and is of interest to book historians, theologians, philologists, and scholars of Islamic Studies alike. Long before printing with movable type became common practice in the Islamic world, Qur'ans had been printed in Arabic type in several European cities. Included here are 62 exemplars of Qur'ans and Qur'an Translations in Arabic, Latin, German, French, English, Dutch, and Hebrew printed between 1537 and 1857, including Arabic Qur'an editions printed in Europe before 1850 and all complete translations directly from the Arabic (until about 1860). Among the secondary translations, only those into German and Dutch are offered completely. Of the partial editions, only the typographically or academically most interesting ones are presented. 

Available as part of Brill's Qurʾānic Studies Online along with The Encyclopaedia of the Qur’an Online, The Qur’an Concordance, and The Dictionary of Qur’anic Usage Online.

Rosenberg Letters

Description

The 105 letters in this collection document the experience of a German Jewish family in the years immediately before, during, and shortly after World War II. Nathan and Johannna Rosenberg of Breisach, Germany, had three sons: Julius (1900-1942), Eugen (1901-1964), and Alfred (1911-2005). Eugen left for Palestine in 1935. Alfred, with his wife, her parents, and her brother, immigrated to the United States in August 1938. Julius remained in Germany with his parents and was murdered at Auschwitz in August 1942. The letters were written to Alfred by his brothers, his parents, and other relatives between 1938 and 1946. Most of the letters are from Julius and many of these he wrote from the labor camp in Gurs, France, to which all of the Jews in Breisach were deported in October 1940.
