This first complete translation of Theodor N�ldeke's The History of the Qura'n offers a foundational work of modern Qura'nic studies to the English-speaking public. N�ldeke's original publication, as revised and expanded over nearly three quarters of a century by his scholarly successors, Friedrich Schwally, Gotthelf Bergstr�sser and Otto Pretzl, remains an indispensable resource for any scholarly work on the text of the Qura'n. N�ldeke's segmentation of the surahs into three Meccan periods and a Medinan one has shaped all subsequent discussions of the chronology of the Qura'n. The revisions and expansions of N�ldeke's initial discussions of the orthography and variant readings of the text have found a new audience among those contemporary scholars who seek to create a more sophisticated understanding of the Qura'n's textual development.
