Documenting the Medicine of the Mongol Era in China: Huihui Yaofang, "Muslim Medicinal Recipes"

Requested is one year of support to allow the applicant to complete an on-going translation of the manuscript known as the Huihui yaofang, “Muslim Medicinal Recipes.” This text comprises the surviving portions (15%, 500 pages) of a Mongol-era encyclopedia of Islamic medicine. It is a unique document pointing up the importance of the East-West and West-East contacts in China under Mongol rule. The purpose of the project is to make a complete and accurate translation, properly introduced, available to both a Sinological and non-Sinological audience to enable further, cooperative study, necessary to evaluate a complex text fully.
