An account of what Arabic scholars have written, either as commentators or as more independent authors, on the subjects treated in Aristotle's Meteorology, this work investigates how they were influenced by one another and by previous Greek commentators.For each subject a survey is given of the content of the Greek commentaries (by Alexander, Philoponus and Olympiodorus) as well as of a later treatise, ascribed to Olympiodorus and extant only in Arabic. Then, the Arabic version of Ibn al-Bitriq is investigated; it was one of the sources used by the Arabic writers which are discussed after that: al-Kindi, Ibn Sina and later scholars who were inspired by him, Ibn Bajja and Ibn Rusd.Two Arabic treatises on subjects from the Meteorology are edited and translated.
