Editorial Reviews


"Superbly documented and highly convincing."—TLS

"This book is a tour de force of interdisciplinary scholarship that deserves a wide readership among medievalists and Islamicists alike."—American Historical Review

"Singularly original both in the kinds of sources it uses and in its analyses and conclusions. . . . A major contribution that will change the way medieval and Renaissance history of Muslim-Christian relations is written."—Dimitri Gutas, Yale University

"Only a modern-day Renaissance scholar could have written this book: mastery not only of Arabic and Latin was required but also of translation methodologies, library science, Christian-Muslim relations, intellectual history, and a host of other relevant areas, such as the indigenization of scripture. Burman completed this task admirably, not only pulling together the complexities of how books are formatted for reading but also doing justice to the personalities and mind-sets of the four centuries under consideration. . . . Superior scholarship. . . . Highly recommended."—Choice

By A. Musa on March 1, 2012
Format: Paperback
Like Shoemaker's The Death of a Prophet, Burman's Reading the Qur'an in Latin Christendom is meticulously researched and lucidly written, shedding new light on early Western encounters with the sacred text of Islam. This a must read for anyone wanting to better understand the complex relationship of Christianity and Islam.
