Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a short description of the work Glossarium latino-arabicum, 'Latin-Arabic glossary' on Christian-Muslim relations. Five hundred and sixty-six pages long in the only modern edition, the Glossarium latino-arabicum is a lexicon devised for Mozarabs educated in Arabic to study Latin, the ancestral and ecclesiastical language of Arabic-speaking Christians of al-Andalus. By its very character, the Glossarium sheds fascinating light on the linguistic and intellectual history of the Mozarabs in the 12th century. Having assimilated over many generations to the Arab-Islamic milieu of their rulers (adopting Arabic as their cultural language, taking Arabic names), and then having abandoned Almohad al-Andalus, they now largely lived in and around Toledo, which had been under Latin-Christian rule since 1085.
