Charles Burnett Publishes a New Book on the Arabic-Latin Transmission

The book Arabic into Latin in the Middle Ages: The Translators and their Intellectual and Social Context by Charles Burnett is a collection of previously published articles on the transmission of Arabic learning to Europe. It concentrates on the identity of the Latin translators and the context in which they were working. The articles are arranged in roughly chronological order, beginning with the earliest known translations from Arabic at the end of the 10th century, and continues until the transfer of the translation activity to Frederick II's entourage in the 13th-century Sicily.
