Hamburg Workshop on Ḥadīth Manuscripts
February 22, 2019 - February 23, 2019
The Centre for the Study of Manuscript Cultures (CSMC) at the University of Hamburg, Germany, is pleased to announce a workshop organised by Stefanie Brinkmann (Saxon Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Leipzig and CSMC, University of Hamburg) and Ali Zaherinezhad (CSMC, University of Hamburg) on “Prophetic Traditions Materialised: Dimensions of Ḥadīth Manuscripts.”
Manuscripts can serve as witnesses to the process of ḥadīth transmission and the study of prophetic traditions across periods and localities. Different recensions of ḥadīth collections and text variants, glosses, commentaries and user entries reveal both the historical growth of these texts as well as their use in specific historical contexts. This international workshop wants to explore the potential of examining manuscripts for the field of ḥadīth studies and to bring together different generations of scholars and graduate students to discuss and exchange ideas on various aspects of ḥadīth manuscripts.
