TAKWIN: SCIENCE AND INNOVATION IN ISLAMIC MANUSCRIPTS

From the 2nd century AH (7th century AD), and for over 1000 years, Muslim scholars played a very prominent role in preserving and advancing the sciences of the human civilization. Existing scientific treatises were translated and expanded upon, while new discoveries were recorded and systematized. Texts were extensively inscribed, filling libraries with shelves of manuscripts. A rich environment flourished, enabling the preservation and transmission of knowledge to Europe and other parts of the world.

This exhibition showcases some of the scientific manuscripts kept in the King Faisal Center in the fields of: medicine, astronomy, mathematics, geometry and  zoology. Most of these manuscripts are supplemented with illustrations and diagrams exhibiting the utmost care and value placed on their composition.
