Andrew O’Connor earned his Ph.D. at the University of Notre Dame in World Religions & World Church with an emphasis on Islamic studies. His research focus is on the Qur’an, particularly its relationship with Jewish and Christian traditions and the cultural and religious environment of Late Antiquity more broadly.
