More than just a few points of contact: Latin and Arabic

„Latin and Arabic: Entangled Histories“, volume 5 in the series „Heidelberg Studies in Transculturality“, explores the many dimensions and ramifications of Latin-Arabic interrelations both from macro-historical as well as from micro-historical perspectives. Visions of history marked by the binary opposition of “Islam” and “the West” tend to ignore these important facets of Euromediterranean interrelations, as do historical studies that explain complex transcultural processes without giving attention to their linguistic dimension.
