Palimpsest page of a Quran in Hijazi script. From the Arabian peninsula, Medina about 600-700

At the Louvre Abu Dhabi


‘The page, from one of the oldest Qurans ever found, is preserved in a darkened room and is close to a Gothic Bible, Buddhist sutras and a Torah from Yemen. It reflects the theme of portraying what’s universal among the peoples of the world.’
