Bibliography of English Translations of Quran to Be Published

A detailed bibliography of Quran translations in English will be published by Tarjoman-e Vahy Cultural Institute.



This is according to Hojat-ol-Islam Muhammad Naqdi, director of the institute, who told IQNA that given the large number of the English Quran translations, the institute plans to publish the reference work to introduce the different enderings.

158 English Quran renderings are kept in the archive of the institute, 80 of which are translations of the entire Quran, he said.

The institute has also published the first bibliography of Persian translations of the Holy Quran, which reflects valuable efforts made by Iranian scholars in a period of about one thousand years.

1000 translations of Quran into Persian have been introduced in the detailed collection, he added.

The bibliography provides information about the type of the script, method of translation, translator, size of the published translation, date of translation and publication, etc.

Most of the enlisted translations belong to Iran and are kept in Iranian libraries, museums and scientific centers, however there are a number of Quranic manuscripts in Persian in India, Pakistan and Turkey which have not yet been included in the list.

The director of the institute also said that it has published another collection of Quran copies by Bahauddin Khorramshahi, Iranian translator of the Holy Quran, which introduces 40 contemporary Persian translations of the Holy Quran along with biographies of their translators.
