The immortal Elements of Euclid was already in dim antiquity a classic, regarded as absolutely perfect, valid without restriction. Elementary geometry was for two thousand years as stationary, as fixed, as peculiarly Greek, as the Parthenon. On this foundation pure science rose in A rchimedes, in A pollonius, in Pappus; struggled inT heon, inH ypatia; declined in Proclus; fell into the long decadence of theD ark A ges. The book that monkish Europe could no longer understand was then taught in A rabic byS aracen and Moor in the Universities of Bagdad and Cordova. To bring the light, after weary, stupid cen turies,, to western Christendom, anE nglish man, A delhard of Bath, journeys, to learn A rabic, through Asia Minor, through Egypt, back to Spain. Disguised as aM ohammedan student, he got into Cordova about 1120, obtained aM oorish copy of Euclid sE lements, and made a translation from the A rabic into Latin.
