A Digital Corpus for Graeco-Arabic Studies

Between the 8th and 10th centuries AD, hundreds of Greek philosophical and scientific works were translated into Arabic. These translations exerted immense influence on the development of philosophy and science in the Islamic world and, through a later process of translation and transmission, in the Latin West as well.

The Digital Corpus assembles a wide range of such texts together with their Greek counterparts, where available, but also a number of Arabic commentaries and crucial secondary sources such as Arabic bio-bibliographical works.
