Woodbrooke-Mingana Symposium: The Psalms of David from Christian Scripture to Islamic Sermon

Having heard my paper “A Muslim Rewriting of Psalm 2” at the Society of Biblical Literature in 2007, David Thomas kindly invited me to the 2009 Woodbrooke-Mingana Symposium in Birmingham, where I made my first attempt at a comprehensive survey of a small and curious body of Islamic literature that purports to present the original “Psalms of David,” rewritten by Muslims authors in a Qur’anic style:

David R. Vishanoff. “An Imagined Book Gets a New Text: The Psalms of David from Christian Scripture to Islamic Sermon.” Sixth Woodbrooke-Mingana Symposium on Arab Christianity and Islam, Birmingham, UK, September 18, 2009.

I will not post the presentation here, since it has been entirely superseded by subsequent publications, especially my article “An Imagined Book Gets a New Text: Psalms of the Muslim David.
