It was the Muslim mathematicians, naturalists, physicians and philosophers, who, from the 8th century onwards, gathered and advanced the knowledge of classical antiquity. At the same time the Christian occident was covered in fundamentalist narrow-mindedness.
Es waren islamische Mathematiker, Naturforscher, Mediziner und Philosophen, die ab dem 8. Jahrhundert das antike Wissen sammelten und maßgeblich weiterentwickelten – während das christliche Abendland in fundamentalistischer Engstirnigkeit versank.
