When the darkness of the Middle Ages covered the European continent, astronomers from the Muslim kingdoms searched the skies from observatories in Samarkand, Baghdad, Damascus, Cairo and Cordoba, while Muslim philosophers, mathematicians, geographers and alchemists were constantly working to maintain and expand the knowledge they had inherited from ancient civilizations.
Through these devoted scientists, the knowledge inherited by the Islamic world was transferred back to Europe and sparked the scientific revolution of the 16th and 17th centuries.
Although, still today the North-Atlantic educational system neglects to acknowledge the contribution of Islam to the cultural, scientific and artistic rise of the modern world and a dominant narrative posits the West as the only heir to the classical tradition.
MOHA aims at furthering the study of the cultural and scientific history of the Islamic civilization and its undeniable contribution to the formation of the modern World.
– MOHA is a civic, non-profit, non-governmental organization, recognized by the Greek State as a Research Center, in the sense of Article 3 of Law No.4310/2014 (GG 258/8-12-2014).
