Arabic Codicology: the Islamic Manuscript Heritage in the El Escorial Collection
3-7 juillet 2017
The course “Arabic codicology: The Islamic Manuscript Heritage in the El Escorial Collection” aims at providing the students with the basic codicological knowledge and the research procedures they will need when studying and analyzing Arabic manuscripts, as well as at familiarizing them with the libraries of the Arabic Islamic world in Medieval and Modern times, more especially that which belonged to the Moroccan sultan Muley Zaydân. To achieve that, the design of the course programme allows the students to apply the knowledge they acquire with the manuscripts. The Royal Library of the El Escorial Monastery houses the most important collection of Arabic manuscripts in Spain, one of the most interesting ones in Europe. Its proximity to the venue for the summer courses makes this particularly valuable as far as the aims of this course are concerned since practical training will take place there, owing to the collaboration which has been set up with the Library. Actual manuscripts of the collection will be examined.
