January 15, 2016

Dr. Sayyed Hossein Nasr spoke about his book, The Study Quran, at Politics & Prose on Friday, January 15, 2016.

A world-renowned authority on Islam, Dr. Nasr, who currently teaches Islamic studies at George Washington University, has authored or contributed to some fifty books and hundreds of articles and papers. For the last decade, serving as general editor, he has worked with a group of eminent scholars on the ambitious—and urgent—project of producing a new translation of the Koran, with commentary. Now realized, this English edition of the great sacred text makes the Islamic tradition accessible to general readers both with its lucid, modern English and its wealth of maps, timelines, annotations, and analyses of relevant theological, geographical, and historical contexts. He is in conversation with Maria Massi Dakake.
