Psalms of the Muslim David: Rewritten Bible or Rewritten Qurʾān?

At the American Oriental Society meeting in 2010 I broke from my habit of presenting progress on my Islamic legal hermeneutics project, and presented an introduction to a curious text I had recently begun to study: a complete rewriting, by Muslims authors and in a Qur’anic style, of the “Psalms of David”:

David R. Vishanoff. “Psalms of the Muslim David: Rewritten Bible or Rewritten Qurʾān?” American Oriental Society, St. Louis, March 14, 2010.

I will not post the presentation here, since it has been entirely superseded by subsequent publications, especially my article “An Imagined Book Gets a New Text: Psalms of the Muslim David.”
