Mark of Toledo

Mark of Toledo (fl. 1193-1216) was a Spanish physician and a canon of Toledo.

He produced one of the earliest translations of the Qur'an into Latin while working at the Toledo School of Translators. He also translated Hippocrates' De aere aquis locis, Hunayn Ibn Ishaq's versions of four of Galen's treatises.

Famous quotes containing the word mark:

    There are no such oysters, terrapin, or canvas-back ducks as there were in those days; the race is extinct. It is strange how things degenerate.... I passed, the other day, the deserted house of Mrs. Gerry, which I used to think so lordly. It stands alone now amid the surrounding sky-scrapers, and reminds me of Don Quixote going out to fight the windmills. It should always remain to mark the difference between the past and the present.
    M. E. W. Sherwood (1826–1903)
