His full Arabic name is Abu al-Walid Muhammad Ibn Ahmad Ibn Rushd, often given as Ibn Rushd (The Commentator). Averroes served as a judge and a physician in Spain and Morocco. He wrote Kulliyat fi al tib (General Medicine, 1162-1169), as well as commentaries on Aristotle. Averroes' work was widely translated into Latin, and later used by Aquinas as a basis for his works. Photographed in Cordoba.
