Maravillas Aguiar Aguilar is a professor of Arabic language at the University of La Laguna (Tenerife, Spain). Philologist, she has specialized in the research of Arab intellectual and scientific history through Arabic texts from the Mamluk Cairo and the Maghreb al-Aqsà (Marinids and Saadians). Since 2019, she has focused on translating texts by Ibn al-Khatib (1313-1374), Abu l-Hasan al Basti al-Qalasadi (1412-1486) and Ahmad b. Qasim al-Hajari (1570-1642) to understand the personal and intellectual circumstances of three people who lived in extreme contexts. Her main line of research is the study of situations of scientific and intellectual continuity in apparent discontinuous societies and periods from the fourteenth to seventeenth centuries.
