Chapter Summary

This section of this book titled Arabic Manuscripts presents a chart containing major pre-Islamic, western and Islamic historical periods. Arabic manuscripts, in the form of codices, cannot be considered in isolation. Firstly, knowledge of the Persian and Turkish languages and manuscript traditions is helpful because many Arabic manuscripts were copied by Persian- and Turkish-speaking scribes who left their mark not only in their application of local practices but also in various manuscript notes and statements, not the least important being colophons penned in their indigenous tongues.

Keywords: Arabic manuscripts; Islamic historical periods
