In the history of science, Islamic science refers to the science developed under the Islamic civilisation between the 7th and 16th centuries, especially during the Islamic Golden Age. It is also sometimes known as Arabic science due to most texts during this period being written in Arabic, the lingua franca of the Islamic civilization. Despite these names, not all scientists during this period were Muslim or Arab, as there were a number of notable non-Arab scientists, as well as some non-Muslim scientists, contributing to science in the Islamic civilization.
