Dr. Maria Massi Dakake Illuminates the Work of a 20th Century Female Qur’an Scholar

Hartford Seminary welcomed Dr. Maria Massi Dakake of George Mason University on Thursday, Oct. 18, 2018, for a lecture she called: “Nusrat Amin’s ‘Treasury of Knowledge’: Exploring the Shi’ite Qur’an Commentary of a 20th Century Female Scholar.”

Dr. Dakake said very little research had been done on Nusrat Amin, an Iranian scholar who lived from 1886-1983, possibly because she was a woman and a fairly conventional one religiously. But her 15-volume Qur’an commentary, which Dr. Dakake found in the library at Princeton University, is worth studying.

The entire lecture can be viewed below:
