English abstract

At the end of the 19th century, a small number of German-speaking Central European researchers began to show great interest in the study of Arab paper. Their investigations remain little known in Spain and Portugal because they are difficult to consult and because many have not been translated. The work of professors Julius Wiesner and Joseph von Karabacek, who published their discoveries according to analytic methods, stands out from among these studies. The results of their research constitute the fundamental pillar of scholarship in this field. The strategic geographical position of the Iberian Peninsula and the presence of Islam on her soil during the Middle Ages turned Iberia into a key reception point for papermaking techniques and ultimately into a center of production for this material, which was essential to the transmission of knowledge of Arab cultures to Medieval Europe. Hence our interest in expanding the knowledge of the scientific work of these two researchers in our language.
