Description: 
The first volume of this series includes most of the papers and three recent articles presented at the International Seminar Transfer of Knowledge in Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages, held in the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Cordoba, as an opening academic activity of the CNERU. The new Arabica Veritas series recalls the idea of the new or renovated knowledge that the Arabs bring to the Medieval Latin world. Arabica Veritas concerns the transmission of knowledge from Late Antiquity to the Middle Ages, a philosophical, scientific and cultural exchange that compels Latin scholars to investigate – through translation and interpretation – philosophical and scientific works written or transmitted in Arabic.
