Now an expanding elite benefitted from a stream of information on virtually anything that interested them. Arab translation initially focused primarily on politics, rendering Persian, Greek, even Chinese and Indic diplomatic materials into Arabic. Byzantine scientists preserved and continued the legacy of the great Ancient Greek mathematicians and put mathematics in practice. The spread of Buddhism led to large-scale ongoing translation efforts spanning more than a thousand years throughout Asia, and sometimes in a rather short time. Proportions vary according to the desired tastes.

While beef, which was less popular in the Medieval era, was certainly tougher than it is today, game, mutton or poultry particularly capon were probably every bit as tender as we find them today. Competent translation entails the judicious blending of formal and functional equivalents. Meanwhile, precursors of the modern scientific method can be seen already in Grosseteste's emphasis on mathematics as a way to understand nature and in the empirical approach admired by Roger Bacon.

Most scientific inquiry came to be based on information gleaned from sources which were often incomplete and posed serious problems of interpretation. By the late Middle Ages the search for natural causes had come to typify the work of Christian natural philosophers. It had come to include virtually any intellectual production anywhere in the world. Yet Arabic has its own sources of reinvention. Of the three facets, he considered the second as the most important.

Tarts, pies and pastries were the common speciality of the cook for meats and the pastry-cook for the pastry, as it was he, and not always the cook, who had the oven. As Western scholars became more aware and more accepting of controversial scientific treatises of the Byzantine and Islamic Empires these readings sparked new insights and speculation.
