Apuntes sobre la transmisión andalusí: de astrología arabo-islamicada a la Europa cristianada.

Theo Loinaz

ABSTRACT

This article critically analyzes and reflects upon the status quo of our current knowledge about the medieval penetration, appropriation and dissemination of Islamicized astrological literature throughout the territory of the Iberian Peninsula. To do so, it has performed a simplification of the analyzed subject by decontextualizing it, first of all from the general processes of assimilation and later dissemination of Moorish scientific and technical traditions and, secondly, by foregoing the framing of specific data from the Iberian region as part of the full ensemble of Islamicized/Christianized cultural interfaces. Ultimately, it advocates the role of astrology as a source of information for the social history of science beyond just elitist circles.

KEYWORDS

Astrology, medieval literature, Iberian Peninsula, lay astrology, science, Islamicized Arab astrology.
