About this item

?unayn Ibn Is?aq (d. 873) was the most prolific and accomplished translator of classical works in the ninth century, translating hundreds of volumes of Greek scientific and philosophical texts into Syriac and Arabic. This fascinating treatise on his Galen translations shines not only light on his own translation efforts and their ninth century context, but also recognizes that the translation movement had begun centuries earlier, with the patient labors of many generations of translators, mostly Christians, but also Jews and others. This volume will be of vital interest to anyone interested in the transmission of knowledge in the Late Antique and early Islamic Middle East.
