Researcher Says Quran in Topkapı May Be The Oldest

The Research Center for Islamic History, Art and Culture (IRCICA), which prints and publishes the oldest transcripts of the Quran online, has taken action with regard to the recent discovery of the oldest transcript of the Quran at Birmingham University. IRCICA General Director Halit Eren said: "We called the university and requested the transcript be delivered to us. However, there is a lingering question: How many pages is the transcript? There is no information on this question. On the Internet, it seems that there are two folios. If that is the case, the Quran in Topkapı Palace is the most complete one. This means that carbon dating should be applied to the transcript in Topkapı Palace as well."
