This collection of articles entitled Case Studies in Transmission is the first publication in the series The Intellectual Heritage of the Ancient and Mediaeval Near East (IHAMNE). The series has its origins in the research project The Intellectual Heritage of the Ancient
Near East (IHANE). It studies cultural transmission within the Near East as well as between the Near East and Europe, especially in the framework of ancient Mesopotamia, Greece, and the medieval Arab-Islamic culture. IHANE has organized several workshops,
mainly in Helsinki, but occasionally also in Innsbruck. These workshops have brought together not only the project members but also colleagues invited to join the discussion in these workshops. The present volume is the result of these workshops and earlier forms of the majority of the papers have been presented and discussed in them.
