Dr Elena Narinskaya
Research Scholar, Centre for Muslim-Christian Studies

The context of the research is biblical exegesis, and the focus of study is the story of Moses and its appearance in Jewish Rabbinical exegesis, Syriac Christianity and in the specifically selected narratives of the Qur’an, which are explicitly related to the biblical stories about Moses.

In the course of the presentation there will be an introduction to the methodology of the research. This will be followed by the analysis of selected passages from the biblical narrative alongside Rabbinical, Christian and Qur’anic writings. The focus will be the notion of signs in the story of Moses.
