Toledo as a Centre of Translation in the 12th &13th Centuries
Toledo is well known as the principal centre in Europe in which texts were translated from Arabic into Latin in philosophy, medicine, mathematics, alchemy and magic. This lecture will show how the translations were made according to strict rules and how they were accompanied by explanations of the texts. They reflect a context of collaboration, between Christians, Jews and Muslims, and of lively exchanges between masters and their disciples.
The seventh of ten lectures in the Translation in History series, investigating the role of key figures and movements in the historical development of the theory and practice of translation. Convened by Geraldine Brodie, Dorota Gołuch and Silvia Kadiu. Supported by the UCL Faculty Institute of Graduate Studies.
