Ancient Muslim religious texts will be displayed at the National Library in Jerusalem including two Korans that date back to the ninth century.

Most of the manuscripts that will go on display are from the collection of Jewish scholar Abraham Shalom Yehuda, a prominent Islamic researcher who bequeathed his collection to the library.

The collection includes some 1,184 manuscripts including some 100 Korans.

The rare manuscripts will be displayed as part of a series of seminars at the library. Each day of the program will also feature the participation of researchers or Muslim clerics.

The program is part of the library management's relatively new policy which is aimed at opening its collections to the general public and not just to researchers.
