Description: 

The first volume of the Arabica Veritas series contains sixteen papers divided between two sections, dealing respectively with beliefs and practices characterising the Late Antique period before the emergence of the new order of Islam in the Near East, and with the cultural issues within Islam and in Christian Europe, especially after the impact of Arabic writings. Most of the papers edited here were first presented at the International Seminar on Cultural Transfer of Knowledge in Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages, held in November 2012 at the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Córdoba, as an opening academic activity of the Córdoba Near Eastern Research Unit (CNERU).
