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.
Ancient Greek Features in Arabic Literature, Ihsan Abbas (Lebanon 1993 2nd edition)
Ihsan Abbas, a Palestinian professor at AUB, traced Greek traces of Arabic literature in his book "Ancient Greek Features in Arabic Literature, Ihsan Abbas (Lebanon 1993 2nd edition). In the Preface he states that this book is an attempt to " answer two main questions: what did Arabs translate from Greek literature and how did the Arabic literature make use of the translated Greek culture, whether it was science, literary works, or philosophy." Below you can see the table of contents of this book (in Arabic).
