Abstract

George Saliba is well known to historians of science as one of the preeminent scholars of the mathematical sciences under Islam from the early Middle Ages to the Renaissance. For more than thirty years, he has been exploring the labyrinthine processes through which classical Greek and Persian astronomical and mathematical learning was acquired and developed by Islamic thinkers. In recent years he has also sought to come to a better understanding of how that knowledge was subsequently transmitted to Europe during the second half of the Middle Ages and the early modern period.
