After the emperor Justinian closed the academy in Athens for its ties to paganism, a number of intellectuals transferred their activity to the court of Persia which by the 7th Century had become an Arab court. The next three centuries saw a renaissance in Arabic scientific and philosophical thought based on Greek texts. Most of the Greek originals had been lost to European scholars during this period and when word traveled north from Spain that Arab and Jewish scholars had the texts and could translate them into Latin, an intellectual gold rush began to the famous “school of translators” in Toledo.
