Scholars of Arabic and Islamic studies examine Qur'anic quotations in the three most important corpora of papyrus and parchment documents from the imperial and lingua franca periods (632-1000) preserved in original letters, agreements, and amulets. One finding is that original letters from the imperial period (632-800) have a clear Muslim-only flavor, while those from the lingua franca period (800-1000) are generally monotheist but rarely specifically Muslim. They also evaluate the extent to which they might use radio-carbon for dating early Qur'an manuscripts. (Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
