The Bible & Quran Project

Initiated by Tim Herb the project aims to map all biblical and Quranic names and to connect these with the genealogical and historical information given in the Biblical texts. As Wikibase allows contradicting statements we will not try to harmonise the information. The project will rather offer competing chronologies and genealogies according to the various statements of the individual books.

The project is so far in its initial stages. The first target is the Bible on FactGrid - every verse and every book with a Q-Number and links into German and English BibleServer.com translations. We should in a second step be able to configure different Bibles for different religions and religious denominations.

The Biblical names will come with GND and Wikidata links. We have not yet risked to advertise the project on a larger scale.
