Chapter Summary

Translations from Arabic into Hebrew produced in medieval language in 13th century are known. This chapter addresses a related issue, less known, of the Latin translations to Hebrew in the South of France where Jewish communities were so receptive to Arab science. It was recently pointed out that, in general, translations from Latin to Hebrew were much less likely than translations from Arabic, but translations from Latin into Hebrew were the subject of this domain article-attended a special dynamic. The chapter presents the data collected from lists of books preserved in different contexts, and are discussed separately for the different geographical areas. Regarding Jewish doctors who had access to books in Latin, historians argue most often only the names of Abraham and Solomon or Avigdor Leo Joseph of Carcassonne. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: Arabic translation; Hebrew; Jewish communities; Latin translations; medieval language; South of France.
