Number of Words Affected by Number of Scribal Changes
The Number of Words Affected by Number of Scribal Changes chart (found under the ‘Charts’ menu and then under ‘Scribal Changes’) simply shows you many words in the Qur’an are affected by 1, 2, or more scribal changes. Click any chart column to see all the words affected by that many scribal changes. Or click the label at the very bottom of the chart to show the words affected by no scribal changes.
Remember that we are regularly adding more scribal changes to our database as we examine and document more early Qur’an manuscripts, so these figures will change over time as we expand our dataset.
