Corrections to Robert of Ketton’s Translation of the Qur’an in MS Paris Bibliothèque de l’Arsenal 1162

Fernando González Muñoz

Abstract

An analysis of the emendations made by an anonymous reviser to Robert of Ketton’s Latin translation of the Qur’an in Ms Paris, Bibliotheque de l’Arsenal 1162 (12th century) shows that they distort the meaning and form of the original version, which was more faithful to the Arabic text. This makes clear that the revision process was carried out without Robert of Ketton’s supervision and probably by someone who was not part of his milieu.
