Favourite Scribal Changes

As you explore Qur’an Gateway’s database of thousands of scribal changes in early Qur’an manuscripts, you may come across scribal changes that you wish to easily find again. You can easily do this by adding them to your Favourite Scribal Changes List

Viewing Your Favourites List

You can view your favourite scribal changes in one of two ways:

  1. By choosing ‘Manuscripts’ > ‘Scribal Changes’ > ‘List My Favourite Changes’ from Qur’an Gateway’s menu bar. 
  2. You can also easily find all your changes by  searching for scribal changes and ticking the ‘Find Favourites Only’ box at the bottom of the page of search options:
