A number of institutions such as the British Library and the Library of Congress have made a sustained effort over the past few years to digitize important religious documents. These digitization projects are rather important to religious scholars and theologians, and many members of the web-browsing public will find them engaging and illuminating. The University of Leeds has been doing some of this work as well, and they recently digitized the important Mahdiyya copy of the Qur'an. Professor Roger Boyle was one of those responsible for this fine work, and visitors to the site can learn more about the document and the digitization process within the "About the manuscript" section offered here. Visitors can begin their journey through the work by clicking on "The data" section and browsing through the various pages. The site is rounded out by a nice selection of external links and a publication listing.
