Chapter Summary

This chapter presents short description of the book Ars lectoria, 'The art of reading' on Christian-Muslim relations. The Ars lectoria is a long treatise about rules for spelling, pronunciation and accentuation of Latin, similar to the identically titled book by Seguinus. The reference in Codex Roda to a liber domini Metobii has been identified with the Apocalypse of Pseudo-Methodius, which is preserved in Syriac, Arabic, Greek and Latin versions. It circulated from an early date in the Iberian Peninsula, though no obvious connection with the contents of Aimericus' and Seguinus' works has been detected. This interpretation of the beginnings of Islam evidently reflects a complex tradition that was taking root among Christians in Europe.
