For the first time, this year’s North American Chapter Group (NACG) meeting was held at an international location - Al-Akhawayn University’s campus nestled in the Middle Atlas Mountains in Ifrane, Morocco. 

The Arabic scholarship of Ignazio Lomellini is largely unknown, even to Arabists and historians studying the Society of Jesus (Jesuits).  In 1622 this Italian priest produced a translation of the Qur’aninfo-icon with accompanying commentary that has remained unstudied in a Genoan library for almost two centuries.
