This volume in the highly respected Cambridge History of Science series is devoted to the history of science in the Middle Ages from the North Atlantic to the Indus Valley. Medieval science was once universally dismissed as non-existent - and sometimes it still is. This volume reveals the diversity of goals, contexts and accomplishments in the study of nature during the Middle Ages. Organized by topic and culture, its essays by distinguished scholars offer the most comprehensive and up-to-date history of medieval science currently available. Intended to provide a balanced and inclusive treatment of the medieval world, contributors consider scientific learning and advancement in the cultures associated with the Arabic, Greek, Latin and Hebrew languages. Scientists, historians and other curious readers will all gain a new appreciation for the study of nature during an era that is often misunderstood.Hecomposeda medical manual fortheuse of monks, a tract on how todetect illnessesin slaves whowere for sale, a satirical ... 1100) in Saragossa, byIbrh m ibn AbSad al Alal Maghrib (fl. midtwelfth century) in Anatolia, and by ubaysh ibn Ibr hmalTifl s (fl. end of the twelfth century). ...
