Chart of Verses with Intertextual Connections

The Verses with Intertextual Connections chart (found under the ‘Charts’ menu and then under ‘Intertextuality’) shows you, for each sura of the Qur’an, how many intertextual connections it has to earlier texts, traditions, documents, or sources.

1 Suras to Show. By clicking the buttons, you can choose whether to plot every sura, just Meccan suras, or just Medinan suras on the chart.
2 Sort By. You can either sort your chart by sura (so sura 1 is drawn first and sura 114 last), or you can sort by the number of intertextual connections (so suras with the greatest number of intertextual connections will appear first).
3 Browse All Connections Button. Click the icon to browse all the intertextual connections in the Qur’an, grouping them by the source/text/tradition they are linked to.

Chart Columns. Point your mouse at a column and Qur’an Gateway will show you a tooltip with the exact value in it. You can also click any column to open the verses from the sura whose column you have clicked that have intertextual connections in the verse browser.
