The studies brought together in this second collection of articles by Paul Kunitzsch continue the lines of research evident in his previous volume (The Arabs and the Stars). The Arabic materials discussed stem mostly from the early period of the development of Arabic-Islamic astronomy up to about 1000AD, while the Latin materials belong to the first stage of Western contact with Arabic science at the end of the 10th century, and to the peak of Arabic-Latin translation activity in 12th century Spain. The first set of articles focuses upon Ptolemy in the Arabic-Latin tradition, followed by further ones on Arabic astronomy and its reception in the West; the final group looks at details of the transmission of Euclid's Elements.

About the Author:

Paul Kunitzsch is Emeritus Professor of Arabic Studies in the Institute of Semitic Studies, the University of Munich, Germany.

Review:

'Many the of the brightest stars in the heavens today have Arabic names - testimony to the great influence of medieval Arab and Islamic astronomy on European science... Paul Kunitzsch has done more to document and study this important influence than almost any other living scholar... Some of Kunitzsch's most interesting work is in German and published in hard-to-find journals, but the Variorum series helps give his studies wider exposure.' Saudi Aramco World
