Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 1: The Near and Middle East 11
Description:

From the eighth to the tenth century A.D., Greek scientific and
philosophical works were translated wholesale into Arabic. A Greek and
Arabic Lexicon is the first systematic attempt to present in an analytical,
rationalized way our knowledge of the vocabulary of these translations. It
is an indispensable reference tool for the study and understanding of
Arabic scientific and philosophical language and literature, and for the
knowledge of the vocabulary of Classical and Middle Greek and the reception
and reading of classical Greek works in late antiquity and pre-Photian
Byzantine literature.
