The blog aggregates news about publications, activities, etc. related to Arabic scholarship in the field of classics and thus seeks to provide greater access to non-Arabic scholars. The news comes mainly from Egypt without excluding other Arabic countries. It aims also at directing the attention of my colleagues to relevant classics materials from an Arabic context, whether this is Graeco-Arabicum or Arabico-Latinum.
An Edition of Averroes'Talḫīṣ kitāb al-šiʿr or "Middle Commentary on the Poetics"
The late Prof. Dr. Muhammed Silem Salem, the founder of classics department in Ain Shams University, has prepared in 1971 an edition of Averroes'Talḫīṣ kitāb al-šiʿr or "Middle Commentary on the Poetics of Arsitotle". A digital version is available in my computer ( just send me an email).
