Abstract

'Ali ibn al-'Abbas al-MaÄ�Å«sÄ«, one of the prominent physician during BÅ«yid dynasty (also called Buwayhid), lived between the lifetime of Razes and Avicenna the two legendary characters of medicine. He wrote a medical encyclopedia for the royal library of Aá¸�ud al-Dawla (949-983) and named it KÄ�mil al-á¹¢inÄ�Ê¿a al-ṬibbÄ«ya (i.e., complete medical art). This book could be considered the first medical compendium scientifically written during the Islamic era because it criticizes the prior books and justifies the necessity of the present work (i.e., KÄ�mil Al-á¹¢inÄ�Ê»a Al-ṬibbÄ«ya). The first Latin translation of this book has been performed by Constantine the African in the 11th century under the name of Liber Pantegni. He did not mention the real author's name and attributed it to himself. He removed all signs in the book that could have any reference to its origin (as he did in other cases). Despite this immoral act and in addition to all studies carried out during the last two centuries regarding the Constantine plagiarism, the present study presented clear evidence on the denomination of meninges indicating that Liber Pantegni is, in fact, KÄ�mil Al-á¹¢inÄ�Ê»a Al-ṬibbÄ«ya.
