This talk will first give a short survey of intellectual trends and ideas that prevailed in Early Islamic Egypt, taken exclusively from Arabic papyrus texts from between the 7th and 9th centuries CE. It will then focus on a specific text genre in order to trace the ways in which knowledge was written down, structured, and passed on.

This talk is part of the Wolfson College Lunchtime Seminar Series - Wednesdays of Full Term series.
