While at IAS, Christian Robin aims to write an updated survey of late antiquity in Arabia, nearly fifty years after the resumption of archaeological investigations. What makes the contribution new is the study of the many recently discovered epigraphical texts, compared with all the sources, including the Arabo-Muslim scholarly tradition.
