Item description for Constantine the African and 'Ali Ibn Al-'Abbas Al-Magusi: The Pantegni and Related Texts (Studies in Ancient Medicine, Vol 10) by Charles Burnett, Danielle Jacquart & Charles Burnett...
When the tenth-century Kamil as-sinaba (or al-Kitab al-malaki) of bAli ibn al-bAbbas al-Magusi was adapted for a Latin-reading audience by Constantine the African in the late eleventh century, the medieval West had, for the first time, the opportunity to use a text which covered the whole of medicine. But the 100-odd extant manuscripts suggest that Contantine's Pantegni was put together over a considerable period of time, and chapters from other Latin and newly-translated Arabic medical works were added to or substituted those of the Kamil. This book is the first to be devoted to Constantine the African: it sheds light on the School of Salerno and the formation of a medical corpus in the High Middle Ages.
