Translation of the Qur'an and the Early Modern Construction of Islam

In this project I propose to study of the English and French translations of the Qur’an and their impact on the Enlightenment’s relationship to the Muslim world. In particular I will focus on the Sale translation (1734) and its impact on the place of Islam in the works of Voltaire and Gibbon.
