Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift


This paper draws attention to a hitherto almost completely neglected encyclopaedic medical handbook composed around 950 CE: al-Muʿālajāt al-Buqrāṭiyya (Hippocratic treatment) attributed to the physician Abū al-Ḥasan Aḥmad b. Muḥammad aṭ-Ṭabarī. The handbook consists of ten books further divided into altogether 473 chapters. Since 1990, the work is available as a facsimile-print published by Sezgin. The print reproduces the most complete text-witness, manuscript Malik Milli 4474. So far, no text-critical edition has been published. In al-Muʿālajāt, ca 92 book-titles attributed to 30 authors are mentioned, in several cases including more or less extensive quotations. In this paper, the altogether 208 references to book-titles in al-Muʿālajāt have been indexed. The index is arranged according to the names of the authors, in Latin alphabetical order.
