This volume considers aspects of the reciprocal influences between Italian Renaissance culture and that of the Islamic world. The papers on science and philosophy reflect Western scholars' interest in Arabic texts while those on the visual and decorative arts describe the impact of Islamic artefacts, techniques and models on Europe as much as the effects of European influences on Islam. The natural focus of the volume is on Venice and Turkey, but other Italian centres are brought into view and, on the Islamic side, the investigation also encompasses Egypt and Syria under the Mamluks, Persia under the Mongols, Timurids and Safavids, and Mughal India.
