Violet Moller, Nick Higham



2:00pm 1h

Violet Moller will be talking to Nick Higham about her book The Map of Knowledge, which follows the most important scientific ideas from the Ancient Greek world down through the Muslim Empire and the Middle Ages to the European Renaissance. They will discuss how books were preserved and re-discovered, translated and studied in seven cities including Cordoba, Toledo and Venice, while assessing how the huge original contribution made by Arabic scholars helped to lay the foundations of the modern scientific enterprise.
