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).
