A Quran manuscript long held by a British university is now believed to be among the world's oldest, written close to the time of the prophet Mohammed.
Radiocarbon testing on the document found the parchment on which the text was written dates to a similar time period as Mohammed, who is believed to have lived between 570 and 632, the University of Birmingham said in a statement Wednesday."Researchers conclude that the Quran manuscript is among the earliest written textual evidence of the Islamic holy book known to survive," according to the statement.
