Uebersetzung des Athelhard von Bath. Copenhagen: A. Abstract When dealing with the prolic intellectual output during the reign of Alfonso X, known to be indebted to Arabic sources, hardly any reference is made to the Almohad context. It is particularly striking that Almohad culture is even ignored when referring to the inuence of Averroism.
It was in fact the Almohad caliphs who encouraged the development of Aristotelian philosophy, which interest in philosophy and knowledge formed part of the sapientialist concept of the Almohad caliphate itself. The present essay discusses this often-disregarded sapientialism, insisting on its connection with Alfonso X, continuing the line of inquiry begun by Ana M.
This study describes what was involved in the political and cultural project of the Almohads, in order to show the parallels with the political and cultural project of Alfonso X. Keywords Almohads, political and cultural project, Alfonso X, sapientialism, knowledge, cultural transfer. Following the line which some have called of the Ban Codera Marn, Arabistas en Espaa; Monroe , traditional Spanish Arabism has paid little attention to the Almoravid and Almohad periods, for it viewed the North African Berber empires as a foreign domination characterized by religious fanaticism, which brought to an end the culture, supposedly largely indigenous, which ourished in the Iberian Peninsula under the Umayyads and the tifa kings.

It was thought to be more dicult to do the same with the political and cultural processes that took place under the Almoravids and the Almohads. Naturally there were exceptions to the lack of scholarly enthusiasm for the history of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, some of which are very noteworthy, such as the studies carried out by the eponym of the Ban Codera, Francisco Codera y Zaidn, and later by Ambrosio Huici Miranda, whose work is becoming ever more highly valued Marn, La cocina , as well as the work by Jacinto Bosch Vil.
Figures such as Ibn Quzmn, Ibn T ufayl, Muhy l-dn Ibn Arab or Ibn Rushd Averroes , living under the Almoravids and the Almohads, have been the object of investigation, but generally little attention was paid to explain their lives and works within the framework of the Almoravid and Almohad political and cultural contexts.
In recent years more interest has been given to this line of inquiry. There have been a growing number of studies, as shown by Volume 8. Mistrust of a period seen as alien and fanatical has left a legacy of general ignorance, and as a result certain striking parallels with the political and cultural processes in the Christian world of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries have gone unnoticed.

It is true that the debt the prolic intellectual output during the reign of Alfonso X owes to Arabic sources has been generally recognized, with extreme points of view ranging from a radical reluctance to acknowledge the debt, to a constant harking back to Andalusi precedents, as in the case of the studies by Francisco Mrquez Villanueva. I am very grateful to Ivy Cors for her careful editing of this paper. On the other hand, see Burns: A major component of [Alfonso Xs] work, indeed the indispensable tool,.
Almohad context, referring rather to the cultural precedent of the Umayyad caliphate. This is particularly striking because Almohad culture is ignored even when referring to the inuence of Averroism, which is generally well accepted in Western Christian historiography. The disregard for the Almohad context seems to be symptomatic of the ignorance mentioned above, for the intellectual work of Averroes can only be explained within the framework of the cultural and religious policies promoted by the Almohad caliphs, as Dominique Urvoys scholarly work has clearly shown.

It was in fact the Almohad caliphs who encouraged the development of Aristotelian philosophy, commissioning and nancing the philosophical, medical and juridical work of Averroes; and this encouragement formed part of the sapientialist concept of the Almohad caliphate itself. It is this oftendisregarded sapientialism that I wish to discuss, to establish its connection with the work of Alfonso X. The connection has already been made in a recent study by Ana M.
Montero, in which she analyzes passages of the General Estoria and the Setenario to a work written under the patronage of the Almohad caliphs. Of particular note are the passages that describe the human eort to achieve divine knowledge through the contemplation of nature and the force of reason. The Muslim work to which these passages have obvious parallels is Ibn T ufayls H ayy b. Yaqzn, or The SelfTaught Philosopher. In this essay I shall explain what was involved in the political and cultural project of the Almohads and examine the parallels to Alfonso Xs political and cultural project.
The Almohad Political and Cultural Project The Almohad political and cultural project may be outlined as follows:3 a A theocratic government founded by a quasi-prophetic gure, Ibn Tmart, and carried on by his successors, the caliphs of the Muminid dynasty.

The Almohad caliph is the vicar of God on earth who promotes and guarantees all knowledge. Development of philosophy, natural sciences and magical and Kabbalistic knowledge. Naturally, this outline does not include the variations and alterations that these religious and cultural policies underwent during the history of the Almohad caliphate, due to long-standing resistance from the religious establishment; but the outline does reect the principal points.
I will consider each of them individually. The doctrine relating to the Sunni or orthodox caliphate held that the caliph, the political and religious leader of the Muslim community, was the vicar of the Prophet of God.

In this way, although the caliph was considered the central gure to oversee that the community followed the correct path to salvation, his role was basically limited to ensuring compliance with the Prophet Muhammads message, which had been set down in the Qurn and in the Tradition of the Prophetthat is, in the narration of the deeds and words of Muhammad, the interpretation of which was entrusted to the ulam, who were specialists in religious knowledge, especially of the law.
Thus the legacy of the Prophet was divided between the caliph and the scholars, with the latter especially responsible for the interpretation and implementation of this legacy. The Shiites, on the other hand, saw the caliph not as the vicar of the Prophet but of God himself. They attributed to him qualities that the Sunnis tended to restrict to prophets, such as supernatural knowledge, impeccability and the ability to perform miracles.
