The Commentary of al-Nayrizi on Book I of Euclid's Elements of Geometry

with an Introduction on the Transmission of Euclid's Elements in the Middle Ages

Edited by Anthony Lo Bello

For more than two millennia, the Elements of Geometry by the Greek mathematician Euclid of Alexandria (ca. 300 B.C.E. ) was held to be “the supreme example of the exercise of human reason” and “a paradigm of rational certainty” (from the preface, after Simon Blackburn). The Commentary of al-Nayrizi on Book I of Euclid’s Elements of Geometry introduces readers to the transmission of Euclid’s Elements from the Middle East to the Latin West in the medieval period and then offers the first English translation of al-Nayrizi’s (d. ca. 922) Arabic commentary on Book I.

Edited by Anthony Lo Bello

The Commentary of Albertus Magnus on Book I of Euclid’s Elements of Geometry is the third in Lo Bello’s series on the Elements. Lo Bello provides the first modern translation of a key Latin text of the Elements in the Middle Ages, the commentary of the Dominican scholastic philosopher Albertus Magnus (d. 1280), the teacher of Thomas Aquinas. The volume includes a translation, notes on the translation, and a critical examination of the mathematical content of the three commentaries on Euclid’s Elements of Geometry thus far treated in this series.
