This talk will present Oman’s rich legacy of manuscript culture in the broader context of the Muslim world. The presentation will include the recently developed Muscat Electronic Mushaf (https://www.mushafmuscat.om/), the first interactive electronic calligraphic Qur’an, the result of a collaboration of scholars from al-Azhar University, and European specialists. The aim of the Muscat Electronic Mushaf is to allow universal access to capture calligraphic traditions of the Arabic script.
