Database: Glossarium Græco-Arabicum

Glossarium Græco-Arabicum
Glossarium Graeco-Arabicum is a project of Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Seminar für Orientalistik und Islamwissenschaft. From 1994 to 2006, it was supported by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft). Since 2010, it has been established as a research unit of project "Greek into Arabic - Philosophical Concepts and Linguistic Bridges"), funded by the European Research Council, and directed by Cristina D'Ancona (University of Pisa). At present, research for the Glossarium Graeco-Arabicum is being conducted at Bochum by Gerhard Endress, Rüdiger Arnzen and Yury Arzhanov.
The database Glossarium Græco-Arabicum makes available the files of a lexical project, intended to open up the lexicon of the mediæval Arabic translations from the Greek. It contains images of the filecards (ca. 80,000) which have not yet been published in the analytical reference dictionary A Greek and Arabic Lexicon (Leiden: Brill, 1992ff.), and comprises Arabic roots from the letter jîm to the end of the Arabic alphabet. The database provides search facilities for Greek words, Arabic words and roots, as well as the authors and titles of the source texts. read more ...
