The contributions to this volume, which come from the Fifth Mingana Symposium, survey the use of the Bible and attitudes towards it in the early and classical Islamic periods.The authors explore such themes as early Christian translations of the Bible into Arabic, the use of verses from it to defend the truth of Christianity, to interpret the significance of Islam and to prove its error, Muslim accusations of corruption of the Bible, and the influences that affected production of Bibles in Muslims lands.The volume illustrates the centrality of the Bible to Arab Christians as a source of authority and information about their experiences under Islam, and the importance of upholding its authenticity in the face of Muslim criticisms.IntroductionHikmat Kachouh The Arabic Versions of the Gospels: A Case Study of John 1.1 and 1.18Samir Arbache Bible et liturgie chez les Arabes chrtiens (VIe--IXe sicle)Shaun O'Sullivan Anti-Jewish Polemic and Early IslamHarald Suermann The Use of Biblical Quotations in Christian Apocalyptic Writings of the Umayyad PeriodMark Swanson Beyond Prooftexting (2): The Use of the Bible in Some Early Arabic Christian ApologiesEmmanouela Grypeou The Re-written Bible in Arabic: The Paradise Story and Its Exegesis in the Arabic Apocalypse of PeterBarbara Roggema Biblical Exegesis and Interreligious Polemics in the Arabic Apocalypse of Peter -The Book of the RollsDavid Bertaina The Development of Testimony Collections in Early Christian Apologetics with IslamDavid Thomas The Bible and the KalamGabriel Said Reynolds The Qur'anic Sarah as Prototype of MaryGordon Nickel Early Muslim Accusations of tahrif: Muqatil Ibn Sulayman's Commentary on Key Qur'anic VersesClare Wilde Is There Room for Corruption in the 'Books' of God?Mark Beaumont 'Ammar al-Basri on the Alleged Corruption of the GospelsSandra Keating The Use and Translation of Scripture in the Apologetic Writings of Abu Ra'ita al-TakritiMaha El-Kaisy Friemuth Al-Radd al-Jamil: al-Ghazali's or Pseudo-Ghazali's?Lejla Demiri Hanbalite Commentary on the Bible: Analysis of Najm al-Din al-Tufi's (d. 716/1316) Al-Ta'liqLucy-Anne Hunt Illustrating the Gospels in Arabic: Byzantine and Arab Christian Miniatures in Two Manuscripts of the Early Mamluk Period in CambridgeJuan Pedro Monferrer-Sala A Nestorian Arabic Pentateuch used in Western Islamic LandsNatalia Smelova Biblical Allusions and Citations in the Syriac Theotokia according to the MS Syr.
