Arabic and Latin Glossary

An ambitious online project, edited by Dag Nikolaus Hasse with a large team of scholars. A very useful resource for a number of specialisms, notably astrology, alchemy, and theology.

The Arabic and Latin Glossary is a dictionary of the vocabulary of the Arabic–Latin translations of the Middle Ages. It unites the entries of all existing Arabic–Latin glossaries in modern editions of medieval works. The Glossary has a double aim: to improve our understanding of the Arabic influence in Europe, especially with respect to scientific vocabulary, and to be a lexical tool for the understanding of Arabic and Latin scientific texts.
