MOOCs

Massive, open, online courses (known as MOOCs) are short courses that are delivered online for free. They don't have any entry requirements and are open to anyone anywhere in the world with an internet connection. We want to give people access to Nottingham's academics and learning resources with course materials drawn from real modules and ebooks.

The Qur'an Between Judaism and Christianity

This online course will illustrate how the Qur’an situates itself as part of, and as a correction to, the religious discourse of the Jewish and Christian communities of Late Antique Arabia.

The course will use the Qur’an, as well as Jewish and Christian historical documents, to reconstruct the religious landscape to which the Muslim scripture reacts in a pointed, precise and nuanced way.

This will give you a historically more informed understanding of nascent Islam, and will allow you to reconsider many of theological and cultural tenets of Late Antique Judaism and Christianity

Start date: 15 January 2018
