1001 Inventions and Arabick Roots shows open at MIA

1001 Inventions exhibition takes visitors through the works of scientists and scholars during the Golden Age of Muslim Civilization, while Arabick Roots reveals the influence of this science on the scientific revolution and lifestyle in Europe in the 17th century through showcasing magnificent objects and priceless manuscripts.

The Gulf times:

HE Sheikha Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, Chairperson of the Board of Trustees of Qatar Museums Authority, opened the 1001 Inventions and Arabick Roots Exhibitions at the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha yesterday.

It’s no coincidence that many scientific words in English contain the Arabic definite article.

At the event, attended by 500 distinguished members of the local and international cultural communities, guests were led through the exhibition on a journey to the Golden Age of Muslim Civilization in a memorable celebration of modern science’s heritage. Connected by the theme: “Explore our past to inspire our future,” the two exhibitions will open to the public today with 1001 Inventions running until November 12 and Arabick Roots continuing until January 2013.
