One-off

The Koran - from the Arab al-Qur'an meaning reading or recitation - is the founding book of Islam, a religion common to nearly one and a half billion believers in the world.

The history of its origins, from the tales told about it in the Muslim tradition to the recent discoveries of scientists, remains largely unknown.

This film invites the viewer to discover this "archaeology of the Koran": a journey to the places where the Koran took shape, was developed and passed on, with running comment and analyses by historians.
