Journal of Islamic Manuscripts


El Dr. Luis Molina y la Dra. Mayte Penelas, investigadores de la Escuela de Estudios Árabes (CSIC), han publicado en el último número de la revista Journal of Islamic Manuscripts el artículo titulado: "The Codex Unicus of the Second Volume of Ibn Ḥayyān’s Muqtabis. An Example of Cooperative Copying", Volume 6, Issue 2-3, (2015), 260-279.





The two extant fragments of the second volume of Ibn Ḥayyān’s Muqtabis – currently preserved in the Real Academia de la Historia of Madrid and in the Qaraouiyine Library of Fez – belong to the same codex, which was copied by several scribes – up to 14 according to our reckoning – in cooperation. As a rule, each copyist undertook the transcription of one of the seventeen gatherings the codex is made up of; in other words, the changing of hand normally coincides with the changing of quire.

There are, however, exceptions to this rule. This paper posits that the irregularities of the codex, as well as its characteristic features, are the result of teamwork, including the accommodation of the share of text allotted to each scribe into the available space.
