Re: VMs: Arabic

The problem of culture, art, stylistics, language, calligraphy, and
palaeography is that you are looking at Islamic Arabic and culture, rather
than some of the other cultures that either preexisted or coexisted with the
Muslims. These other people were often considered second-class citizens, and
thus had motive for keeping their knowledge secret from the overlords that
they despised. A perfect setting for the creation of a one-off manuscript.
