The Qur'an: Three Volumes from the Ramseyer Collection

What's in a nameKathryn A. Martin Library invites you to view selections from a new exhibit from the Ramseyer-Northern Bible Society Collection.

This exhibit follows last year's initiative and presents three volumes of the Qur'an from Archives and Special Collections. In 2013-2014 the Martin Library hosted: Let's Talk About It: Muslim Journeys, Pathways of Faith. We read books and watched videos on Islamic art and culture, we heard scholars' presentations where they answered many questions. We looked at the Qur'an, and we heard it recited from memory by Muslim children.
