knowledge quot

defines the name Bukhara itself as meaning "full of knowledge", referring to the fact that in antiquity, Bukhara was a scientific and scholarship powerhouse. Rumi verifies this when he praises the city as such: آن بخارا معدن دانش بود "Bukhara is a mine of knowledge, پس بخاراییست هرک آنش بود Of Bukhara is he who possesses knowledge." In the Italian romantic epic (Epic poetry) ''Orlando innamorato'' by Matteo Maria Boiardo, Bukhara is called Albracca and described as a major city of Cathay. There, within its walled city and fortress, Angelica (Angelica (character)) and the knights she has befriended make their stand when attacked by Agrican, emperor of Tartary. As described, this siege by Agrican resembles the historic siege by Genghis Khan in 1220. Boiardo: ''Orlando innamorato'', verse translation by Charles Stanley Ross (Oxford University Press, 1995), Book I, Cantos 10-19 and Explanatory Notes, pp. 401-402.
