About this title


Hunayn Ibn Ishaq (809-73), one of the most prolific early medieval translators of classical works, rendered hundreds of Greek volumes into Syriac and Arabic. This treatise on his Galen translations illuminates Ishaq's efforts and their ninth-century context while recognizing that the translation movement had actually begun centuries earlier with Christians, Jews, and others. Offering the definitive Arabic text with a modern English translation and apparatus, this volume will be essential for anyone interested in the transmission of knowledge in the Late Antique and early Islamic Middle East.


Lamoreaux's book makes it easier for historians to understand, navigate, and consult one of ?unayn's most important works. Published in the Eastern Christian Texts Series by Brigham Young University Press, this book will be a boon for Syriacists, Arabists, Classicists and to intellectual and medical historians. --Intellectual History of the Islamicate World
