Prophetic Traditions Materialised:
Dimensions of Ḥadīth Manuscripts

Centre for the Study of Manuscript Cultures, Hamburg
22 - 23 February 2019


Manuscripts can serve as witnesses to the process of ḥadīth transmission and the study of prophetic traditions across periods and localities. Different recensions of ḥadīth collections and text variants, glosses, commentaries and user entries reveal both the historical growth of these texts as well as their use in specific historical contexts. This international workshop wants to explore the potential of examining manuscripts for the field of ḥadīth studies and to bring together different generations of scholars and graduate students to discuss and exchange ideas on various aspects of ḥadīth manuscripts.

A Workshop organised by the Center for the Study of Manuscript Cultures and is supported by the Saxon Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Leipzig. Hosted by Stefanie Brinkmann and Ali Zaherinezhad.
