Book Information

   

Title: The Alfonsine Tables of Toledo
Series Title: Archimedes, Vol. 8
Description:

The Alfonsine Tables of Toledo is for historians working in the fields of
astronomy, science, the Middle Ages, Spanish and other Romance languages.
It is also of interest to scholars interested in the history of Castile, in
Castilian-French relations in the Middle Ages and in the history of
patronage. It explores the Castilian canons of the Alfonsine Tables and
offers a study of their context, language, astronomical content, and diffusion.

The Alfonsine Tables of Toledo is unique in that it: includes an edition of
a crucial text in history of science; provides an explanation of astronomy
as it was practiced in the Middle Ages; presents abundant material on early
scientific language in Castilian; presents new material on the diffusion of
Alfonsine astronomy in Europe; describes the role of royal patronage of
science in a medieval context.
