The Written Word
While driving to work this morning I caught the first part of Melvyn Bragg's In Our Time broadcast by BBC Radio 4. The programme explores the role of writing and its influence upon religion, and I caught the first two sections on Christianity and Islam (I don't know what happened later in the programme). Some interesting details on, for example, the Codex Sinaiticus, by a British Library curator, as well as Mohammed and the Koran in the next section. A podcast of the programme is available here.
