The abbreviation of The introduction to astrology : together with the medieval Latin translation of Adelard of Bath by Abū Maʻshar( Book )

13 editions published in 1994 in English and Arabic and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abu Ma'sar (787-886, known as Albumasar in Western Europe) was the best known astrologer of the Middle Ages in both the Islamic world and the Christian West. His most famous work was the "Great Introduction" to astrology, which was copied into numerous Arabic manuscripts, translated into Latin twice, and printed in the Renaissance. However, he himself made an abbreviation of this work, which summarized the astrological information in the larger work. This abbreviation survives in two Arabic manuscripts and a Latin translation made by Adelard of Bath in the early 12th century. This text contains the first edition of the abbreviation and the Latin translation, with English translations of both texts and several indexes. It should be of interest to cultural historians, as well as a useful introduction to medieval astrology

Studies in the history of the exact sciences in honour of David Pingree( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays reflects the wide range of David Pingree's expertise in the scientific texts (above all, concerning astronomy and astrology) of Ancient Mesopotamia, Greece, India, Persia, and the medieval Arabic, Hebrew and Latin traditions. Both theoretical aspects and the practical applications of the exact sciences-in time keeping, prediction of the future, and the operation of magic-are dealt with. The book includes several critical editions and translations of hitherto unknown or understudied texts, and a particular emphasis is on the diffusion of scientific learning from one culture to another, and through time. Above all, the essays show the variety and sophistication of the exact sciences in non-Western societies in pre-modern times

The interactions of ancient astral science by David Brown( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why and when did ancient scholars make the enormous effort to understand the principles and master the mathematics of foreign astral sciences? This work provides a detailed analysis of the invention, development and transmission of astronomy, astrology, astral religion, magic and medicine, cosmology and cosmography, astral mapping, geography and calendrics and their related mathematics and instrumentation in and between Mesopotamia, Egypt, the West Semitic areas, Greece and Rome, Iran, India and China. It considers the available textual evidence from the most ancient times to the seventh century CE. The author has worked the contributions of eight internationally renowned scholars into what amounts to a new history of the oldest sciences. The result is a challenging read for the layperson and a resource for the expert and includes an extensive index to the entire volume. It provides a new typology of cultural interactions and, by describing their socio-political backdrop, offers a cultural history of the region. In particular, astral science in the Hellenistic period west of the Tigris is completely re-evaluated and a new model of the interactions of Western and Indian and Iranian astral sciences is provided
