The Arabic Commentaries on the Hippocratic Aphorisms

This special issue focuses on the ‘Arabic Commentaries on the Hippocratic Aphorisms’. During a 5-year ERC-funded project, a team of researchers led by Peter E. Pormann has produced a 1.5m-word corpus of preliminary editions, and analysed it in multi-faceted ways. The team shared their digital editions with scholars from outside Manchester, and invited them to engage with the new material; these ed... more

Assessing Avicenna's (d. 428/1037) medical influence in prolegomena to post-classical (1100-1900 CE) medical commentaries

In this article I attempt to gauge Avicenna’s (d. 428/1037) influence on the medieval Arabic medical tradition. I do this by examining the introductions to commentaries written by Ibn Abī Ṣādiq (d. after 460/1067), ʿAbd al-Laṭīf al-Baġdādī (d. 629/1231) and Faḫr al-Dīn al-Rāzī (d. 606/1210). Ibn Abī Ṣādiq’s introduction to his commentary on the Hippocratic Aphorisms shows that Avicenna’s influence... more

Avicenna and Galen, philosophy and medicine

In this article I discuss Greek and Arabic philosophical and medical debates about experience (taǧriba, empeiria). I consider the Greek and classical Arabic background for debates about experience among Arabic commentators on the Hippocratic Aphorisms. I argue that these authors are influenced by Galen’s ideas about experience in his pharmacological and dietetic writings, and Aristotle’s ideas abo... more

The emergence of verification (taḥqīq) in Islamic medicine

In this article, I discuss the legacy of Faḫr al-Dīn al-Rāzī’s commentary on Avicenna’s Canon of Medicine in Islamic medical commentary after 1100. I argue that Faḫr al-Dīn’s legacy lies in the exegetical practices, the method of verification (taḥqīq) he introduced into Islamic medical scholarship through his commentary on the Canon. I first argue that the features that characterise the method of ... more

The enigma of Arabic and Hebrew Palladius

This article reassesses the attribution of the Aphorisms commentary preserved in the Haddad Memorial Library (MS Ḥaddād) to Palladius. Where the evidence for the commentary in Greek sources is virtually non-existent, Arabic testimonia are more numerous. We discuss Arabic fragments in Muḥammad ibn Zakarīyā al-Rāzī’s Comprehensive Book (al-Kitāb al-Ḥāwī) and Arabic commentaries on the Hippocratic Ap... more

Transformation of Galen’s textual legacy from classical to post-classical Islamic medicine: Commentaries on the Hippocratic Aphorisms

I assess Galen’s (d. ca. 216) textual legacy on Arabic commentaries on the Hippocratic Aphorisms. I show that early authors in this tradition employ exegetical strategies taken from Alexandrian exegetical models. Applying these strategies to the Hippocratic-Galenic text makes Galen’s commentary the primary means for these authors to understand the Aphorisms. By introducing a host of commentary str... more
