Abstract

The encounter between East and West from the beginning of the nineteenth century onwards is considered as one of the historical events that fostered the cultural Arab Renaissance and led to the Arab discovery of European sociability. A number of travel reports of the period were instrumental in introducing some of its models to Arab society, such as Takhlīs al-ibrīz fī talkhīs Bārīz (The Purification of Gold Regarding Paris in Brief) by the Egyptian Rifā‘a Rāfi‘ al-Tahtāwī. His book is considered as one of the earliest records of the impact of traditional Arab culture on modern European civilization. https://www.digitens.org/en/notices/arab-discovery-european-sociability.html
