Circle of scientists and Arabists

With the increasing interest in eastern science in 17th-century Europe, chairs of Arabic were established at leading universities, and professors searched hundreds of Arabic and Persian books for scientific ideas to share. A close-knit circle of scholars formed, united in the aim to learn from eastern writings. They translated books on astronomy, medicine, mathematics and philosophy, and discussed their contents through exchanging hundreds of letters.
