This lecture, part of the Khalili Research Centre weekly seminars, is about the early history of the Qur'an. By confronting some of the earliest extant Qur'an manuscripts with Arabic textual sources, it sheds new light on the process of canonisation of the Qur'anic text and the probable existence of non-'Uthmanic codices in the early Islamic period.
