Who Wrote (Down) the Quran? is the question that five Islamic scholars will attempt to answer at a conference Friday, Feb. 21, from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Penn Humanities Forum, 3619 Locust Walk. Panelists from Canada, France and the United States will consider the physical process of collecting, writing and canonizing the earliest versions of the Quran, considered by Muslims to be the revealed word of God. Free, preregistration required: firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-898-8220.
