The Qur’ānic Studies Online database is essential resource for the studies of the Qur’an from a variety of angles. It will be used by many working in history, archaeology, politics, Asian studies and not just those interested in middle easter studies. It is as indispensable as the Encyclopaedia of Islam (also published by Brill). The quality of this publication is of the highest order given that it is done by Brill. I have visited Brill myself in Leiden and interacted with many of the staff and I can attest to their professionalism
