Call for Manuscripts: Biblia Arabica : Texts and Studies

The progressive spread of Arabic as the dominant spoken and written language
in the lands conquered by Islam led the Jewish, Christian and Samaritan
communities under its rule to translate their sacred scriptures into Arabic.
This resulted in a large number of partial and integral translations
revealing a great variety in stylistic approaches, vocabulary, script, and
dogmatic concerns. This series addresses the lacuna in research by
publishing critical editions of Arabic books produced in the Middle Ages and
beyond, studies examining the different schools and persons that took part
in this scriptural translation enterprise, as well as the social and
cultural implications of their endeavor. In addition, the reception of and
reactions to these Bible translations by Muslim authors fall within the
scope of the series.

The first book in this series, The Bible in Arabic: An Annotated
Bibliography, by Adam McCollum, is expected in the beginning of 2013.

For further information about this new book series or enquiries regarding
book proposals, please contact any of the six members of the editorial
board: Camilla Adang, Juan Pedro Monferrer Sala, Meira Polliack, Sabine
Schmidtke, Alexander Treiger, Ronny Vollandt
