Abstract

Medical sciences in the ommeyyade's time in Cordoue. The Latin translations of major Arabian texts have largely contributed to the rise of medical sciences in christian Western during the middle age. Among the pharmacologist Andalusian erudites who have been translated into Latin language, for example by Gerard de Crémone, Al-Zahrâwî (Albucasis) and Ibn Wâfid are references. Al-Zahrâwî has written about materia medica in several books included in his thirty volume's encyclopaedia : al-tasrif. Ibn Wâfid has given to the medical world two remarkable treatises : a really formuler kitâb al-wisâd fi-l-tibb though a book of the simple drugs, kitâb fi al-adwiya al-mufrada.
