From the Author
Will change your view about Arabic Astronomy
This book argues that the Golden Age of Arabic Astronomy occurred between the 11th and 16th century and had an important impact on Renaissance Europe and on Copernicus in particular.
From the Back Cover
Based on the most recent manuscript discoveries, this book broadly surveys development sin Arabic planetary theories from the eleventh century to the fifteenth. Taken together, the primary texts and essays assembled in this book reverse traditional beliefs about the rise and fall of Arabic science, demonstrating how the traditional 'age of decline' in Arabic science was indeed a 'Golden Age' as far astronomy was concerned.See all Product description
