The following articles written by Bernard Lewis, mainly interested in Medieval Islam, Otoman Empire, and today's Middle East, was published in a magazine called "al-Mustami' al-Arabî", under six headings. He states in these articles that the first contact between the Western world and Islamic world goes back to Muslim conquest of Sicily and Spain. According to him, the British come first when compared with other European countries. This study has dealt with the story of their interest since the early days.Having separate titles, these articles were arranged in the following order: Middle Ages; the Rise of Orientalism; Eighteenth Century; Nineteenth Century; Appendix to Nineteenth Century; Nineteenth Century and its Aftermath. Bernard Lewis examines very shortly those distinguishable scientists, their travels aimed to investigate the culture and civilisation of the Eastern world, and their works. While producing works in this period, the British scientists also took many manuscripts to their countries and published some of them. Therefore, Bernard Lewis's articles are very significant.
