The lecture presents the project Corpus Coranicum of the Academy of Sciences of Berlin-Brandenburg, initiated in 2007. Among other initiatives, the project includes the digitalisation of the Gotthelf-Bergsträßer photographic archive of early Koran manuscripts, which was compiled before the Second World War in Munich. The endeavour defines itself as the successor of the Koran commission of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences active before the war.
