    Altara,

    Why dont you clarify your post about Eastern Christianity?

    Nestorians had the antiquity for them under Ctesiphon. Monophysite are more in the North and the heart of Arabs dwelling is al Hira.

    Reading Beck, there seems to be a core of monophysites also in Arabia Petraea? You agree?

     Reply #7173 - July 24, 2019, 08:04 PM

    Yes, West Arabian Christianity is mainly Monophysite due to the action of Theodora. Nonetheless Petra is relatively near Jerusalem and hold a bishop from Constantinople.

    Altara,

    Beck prefers to use anti-chalcedonian Christians because there was no real unity amongst the different factions. He quotes from "Peter the Iberian" that would have set the example of Mohammed's night journey.

    This is from a Twitter thread by Sean W. Anthony where he shows to an article by Robert Hoyland  you all know:

    "Reflections on the Identity of the Arabian Conquerors
    of the Seventh-Century Middle East"
    http://www.middleeastmedievalists.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/UW-25-Hoyland.pdf

    In this thread, Marijn van Putten question something:

    "Firstly, the title only appears on coins in southwest Iran,"
    And it appears on hundreds of papyri in Egypt, which I'm sure Hoyland is aware of. Not quite sure what point he is trying to make with that. Are coins different because they are more outwardly addressed?"

    https://twitter.com/shahanSean/status/932083692419342336

    I don't know anything about these papyri from Egypt. Are they important? Is Hoyland writing something wrong?
    I thought that the first time Muhammed is mention in any Muslim sources, except the Quran, was on the coin from Iran in the 680s. Is that wrong?

    Yes Nestorians and Monophysites were anti-chalcedonian Christians who have flee in the East and remains anti-chalcedonian even if the Persians were doubtful about that. West Monophysite Arabs were not oppressed by Constantinople (at all) and remains more or less the allies of the Romans.
     "Peter the Iberian" : why not. But (for me...) "Mohammed's night journey" does not really deserve an article, it has no importance about the origin of the Quranic text which is (I think, maybe I'm wrong...)
    the topic.

    thanks  for that post dear Asbjoern1958.,  that twitter link connected me to Éléonore Cellard  small note https://journals.openedition.org/lettre-cdf/4325  which has a heading  "Une nouvelle contribution à l’histoire du Coran en Égypte au VIIIe siècle : le palimpseste copto-coranique"  i guess that work is describing  Quran in Coptic language...





    i  wonder when and where  Coptic Quran was first published?   and i am curious  some one could translate this  

    Quote
    ...............La tradition islamique rapporte que le texte coranique aurait été définitivement fixé1 quelques années après la conquête de l’Égypte, à l’initiative du calife ‘Uṯmān ibn ‘Affān (r. de 644 à 656). Cependant, l’Égypte ne fit pas partie des garnisons qui reçurent l’un des quatre – ou sept selon les récits – archétypes coraniques2 produits à cette occasion. Privé de son archétype, l’Égypte a-t-elle joué un rôle dans la transmission manuscrite du Coran ?...............


    does  it say Coptic Quran was published in the year around  644 à 656  ??

    i  fully agree with you...  there are so many useless publications in this Quran investigations........as i said earlier
      ......................................many folks read one or two verses here and there and try to write publications and books on them .....................  that is unfortunate

    that is nonsense.........

    The fact that beck tinks 17:1 contains an interpolation inspired by non-Chalcedonians says something about the original milieu of the Quran, no?

    Not necessarily, as there are different "inspirations" from multiples doctrinal places in the text. Which one to choose then? Wink

    You just need to unfold MVP tweet ; he is talking about the title amir al mu'minin, not Muhammad.

    Thanks for the response on my comment, Altara, yeezeeve and Marc S.

    MVP writes " And it appears on hundreds of papyri in Egypt". 

    I have seen the link that MVP show to, but I am not able to find out so much of it. Is it hundreds of the title of Muhammad in this link? I can see something written in Greek, but that is from Palestine, not Egypt.
    In 1979 I studied theology for one year but I hardly remember anything from my Greek lessons, but maybe some of you can understand this.

     Reply #7187 - July 25, 2019, 07:25 PM

    Like I said, it is not about Muhammad but about the title amir al mu'minin that those hundreds of papyri refer to. Then they seem to be having a discussion about Mu'awiya ; I am reading Hoyland's paper so I will let you know if it does clarify their issue.
