Glossarium Graeco-Arabicum

The database Glossarium Graeco-Arabicum makes available the files of a lexical project, intended to open up the lexicon of the medieval Arabic translations from the Greek. It contains about 100,000 Greek-Arabic word pairs, gramatically categorized and contextualized (for the most part, but the work is still in progress). In 2016, various visualizations have been developed to facilitate the access to the large data corpus.
