Boaran is Arabic for Latin crisis according to the liber de doctrina arabica.


Simon’s often quoted source, the liber de doctrina arabica, has so far not been identified, but cf., what must be a similar glossary/dictionary - Vocabulista - ed. Schiaparelli (1871: 35) [[1]]: ﺑﺠﺮﺍﻥ /buḥrān/ Crisis; ed. Schiaparelli (1871: 325): CRISIS /buḥrān/ ﺑﺠﺮﺍﻥ. Corriente (1989: 36): *BḤR: … >buḥrān< crisis de la enfermedad {i.e. "crisis of a disease"}.

Cf. Lane (1984: 157): ﺑﺠﺮﺍﻥ /buḥrān/ "a post-classical word, … used by the physicians, signifying the crisis of a disease; the sudden change which happens to a sick person, … and the commencement of convalescence, ... in acute diseases …"
