The objective of this conference is to focus on the development of Graeco-Arabic medicine in Egypt. Graeco-Arabic medicine developed in medieval Egypt in line with the scientific and intellectual advancements which took place in Bagdad during the first centuries of the Abbasid dynasty. In this conference, we will consider Egypt as a part of the Islamic world closely related to the scientific centers of learning that flourished over this period, as well as a specific milieu.
