In this book, Watt explores the influence that Islam had on Europe during the medieval period. He looks at the various ways in which Islamic ideas, culture, and knowledge were transmitted to Europe, and how they were received by Europeans at the time. The book is divided into several chapters, each focusing on a different aspect of the interaction between Islam and medieval Europe.

One of the most interesting aspects of the book is its discussion of the transmission of Islamic knowledge to Europe. Watt explains how Islamic scholars preserved and developed ancient Greek and Roman knowledge in fields such as mathematics, astronomy, and medicine. This knowledge was then transmitted to Europe through various channels, such as translations of Arabic texts, travel accounts of Europeans who had visited the Islamic world, and the migration of Islamic scholars to Europe.

Watt also looks at the impact that Islamic culture had on Europe during the medieval period. He discusses the influence of Islamic art, architecture, and literature, and how it affected European styles and tastes. He also examines the role of Islamic philosophy in shaping European thought, particularly in the area of metaphysics.
