The Arcadian Library manuscript, which is the subject of this book, provides a snapshot of the intercultural dialogue that was taking place in medieval Spain where Muslims, Jews, and Christians were all involved in studying and disseminating medical knowledge. The manuscript itself is of the master work of the early twelfth-century Jewish physician, Ibn Baklarish, and was written in A.D. 1130. It provides unique information about the state of medicine in medieval Spain at the time. This edited volume is completed by a collection of eight essays by an international team of experts on Ibn Baklarish and his work.
