The conference is devoted to the Bible among Arab Christians, with a particular focus on its translation from ancient languages into Arabic, the new “lingua franca” of the eastern Middle Ages. Some papers will also deal with the use of the Bible in Christian literature of controversy during the Abbasid Caliphate, while others will tackle the Biblical interpretations written in this period. A final panel will focus on the development of apocrypha in Arabic as a key reading for the understanding of Muslim-Christian relationships.
