Summary

This website is devoted to the Rational Sciences in Islam project, which has three different components: the Islamic Scientific Manuscripts Initiative (ISMI), the Post-Classical Islamic Philosophy Database Initiative (PIPDI), and the Scientific Traditions in Islamic Societies (STIS) project.

The databases are not yet searchable on the site. There is, however, extensive bibliographic information under the PIPDI heading. There is also a link to information on Islamic astronomers under the ISMI heading.
