Best known for his 1906 discovery of lost texts in the Archimedes Palimpsest, Danish scholar Johan Ludvig Heiberg (1854-1928), professor of classical philology at Copenhagen, published numerous editions of ancient mathematicians, including Archimedes and Apollonius of Perga (also reissued in this series). Between 1898 and 1907, he published in three parts the extant astronomical works of Ptolemy, active in second-century Alexandria. The Ptolemaic system, his geocentric model of the universe, prevailed in the Islamic world and in medieval Europe until the time of Copernicus. This second part of Volume 1, published in 1903, contains a brief Latin preface and the Greek text of Books 7-13 of Ptolemy's major astronomical treatise, known as the Almagest. It demonstrates how to use astronomical observations to construct cosmological models and includes tables that make it possible for celestial phenomena to be calculated for arbitrary dates.

Dem am 31. Januar 2001 mitten in seiner Lehr- und Forschungstatigkeit verstorbenen Heidelberger Professor Dr. Hubert Petersmann wird der Sammelband Petroniana gewidmet sein. Mit diesem Titel ist ein Bereich angesprochen, der zwar die Weite von Herrn Petersmanns Forschungstatigkeit gewiss nicht abdeckt, aber doch ein Zentrum seiner Arbeiten darstellt, in dem die Vielfalt und das Ineinandergreifen seiner Fragestellungen reprasentiert sind. Die von einem Kreis in- und auslandischer Freunde und Kollegen verfassten Beitrage fordern bei aller Eigenstandigkeit gerade durch die Verschiedenheit der Fragestellungen das Verstandnis von Petrons Werk betrachtlich. Bisherige Forschungsschwerpunkte der Herausgeber: Lateinische Sprachwissenschaft.

I was introduced to Tiisi: and his Tadhkira some 19 years ago. That first meeting was neither happy nor auspicious. My graduate student notes from the time indicate a certain level of confusion and frustration; I seem to have had trouble with such words as tadwlr (epicycle), which was not to be found in my standard dictionary, and with the concept of solid-sphere astronomy, which, when found, was pooh-poohed in the standard sources. I had another, even more decisive reaction: boredom. Only the end of the term brought relief, and I was grateful to be on to other, more exciting aspects of the history of science. A few years later, I found myself, thanks to fellowships from Fulbright-Hays and the American Research Center in Egypt, happily immersed in the manu script collections of Damascus, Aleppo, and Cairo. Though I had intended to work on a topic in the history of mathematics, I was drawn, perhaps inevitably, to a certain type of astronomical writing falling under the rubric of hay' a. At first this fascination was based on sheer numbers; that so many medieval scientists could have written on such a subject must mean something, I told myself. (I was in a sociological mode at the time.

A unique bibliography of literary works that survive from Greek antiquity, this Canon is a register of all the information stored in the Thesaurus Linguae Graecae, a vast computerized database of Greek literature ranging from Homer to the closing of the Academy in the 6th century AD. The book encompasses nearly 2,900 authors, representing 8,000 individual works and some 57,000,000 works of Greek text. It includes invaluable information on each writer's dates and geographical origins, their works, the genre to which each work belongs, the form in which each work survives, and the number of words each contains. Of particular usefulness is information on the standard or best textual edition of each work, as recommended by a special committee of the American Philological Association. This new second edition of the Canon encompasses an additional 200 years and adds 1,200 authors to those found in the first edition, including a number of important later authors who are often the only sources for earlier texts. As the largest bibliography of extant Greek works, the Thesaurus Linguae Graecae Canon is a concise literary history that can be consulted for geographical, chronological and prosopographical information as well. It is certain to become an indispensable reference tool for Greek classical scholars and will be of interest and value to those in other fields concerned with the literature.

Byzantine science has been a largely neglected subject: Byzantinists, whether dealing with the history or the literature, have most often been deterred by the technicalities; historians of Greek science have been more attracted to earlier periods. Yet, even if science in the Byzantine world may not have attained the levels of achievement of the Alexandrian period, or of the Islamic world, it is clear that it was the focus of serious scholarship, and this deserves equally serious investigation. Anne Tihon has been in the forefront of those bringing to light the wealth of unpublished texts. Her final study here presents an overview of scientific teaching in Byzantium, while other articles deal specifically with astronomy from the 9th to the 15th century. They look in particular at the relations between Byzantine and Islamic astronomy, and at calculations of the planets and eclipses.
