Summary

Six internationally known scholars focus on such important cultural activities of the Middle Ages as education, scholastic theology, pharmacology, international trade, the Clunia Holy War against Islam, and the movement of ideas from East to West. Contributors who first submitted these papers at the Ninth Annual Conference of the Center for Medieval and Early Renaissance Studies at SUNY Binghamton include: George Makdisi, Claude Cahen, J. Van Ess, Albert Dietrich, Vicente Cantarino, and Anwar Chejne.

Dr. Khalil I. Semaan has published seven books and more than thirty articles in scholarly journals, all on a wide range of topics relating to Middle East culture. A professor of Arabic Studies at SUNY Binghamton, he was coordinator of the conference on that campus at which these collected papers were presented.
