This collection of essays studies the movement of texts in the Mediterranean basin in the medieval period from historical and philological perspectives. Collectively, the contributors reject the presumption that texts simply travel without changing. They examine closely the nature of these writings, which are concerned with such topics as science and medicine, and how they changed over the course of their journeys through the Mediterranean region. Transit and transformation give texts new subtexts and contexts, and they provide windows through which to study how memory, encryption, oral communication, cultural and religious values, and knowledge traveled and were shared, transformed, and preserved. Through careful consideration of these works and the evidence of their travel that remains in the written record, this volume broadens how we think about texts, communication, and knowledge in the medieval world. Aside from the editors, the contributors are Mushegh Asatryan, Brian Becker, Leonardo Capezzone, Leigh Chipman, Ofer Elior, Zohar Hadromi-Allouche, Harun Küçük, Israel M. Sandman, and Tamás Visi.
