Gerberti (Aurillac, Papa Silvestro II). Astrolabio. Manoscritto

ff. 53v-56: treatise on the construction of the astrolabe: fPhilosophi qui sapienter motus secundum [sic, for siderum] cuncta firmamenti`F (see Vallicrossa, pp. 293-95). This is an Ottoman manuscript of a major tenth-century secular text on mathematics, geometry and on the construction of the astrolabe. The small format of this manuscript is unusual for this date and region, and may indicate that the manuscript was produced to be used as a portable school text, perhaps in one of the monastic schools of the area. Gerbert (Aurillac c. 930-40 died as Pope Sylvester II in 1003). Gerbert of Aurillac has long been recognized as the principal intellectual figure of the tenth Century. (Saenger, Space between Words, p. 143). He was a close proteg of Otto I (Holy Roman Emperor 962-73), was master of the Cathedral school at Theims, abbot of Bobbio, abbot of Rheims, archbishop of Ravenna, and in 999 pope (he was the first French pope). D.E. Smith, calls him "that remarkable churchman and scholar, Gerbert, one of the greatest popes that ever added lustre to the papal throne" (History of Mathematics, I (1923), p. 195). "The chronicler Richer asserts that he taught the complete Logica Vetus in the school of Rheims; if this is so, Gerbert was the first master in Europe to use a substantial part of the logical works of Aristotle and Boethius" (Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church (1974), p. 1330) together with the commentaries of Porphyry, Cicero and pseudo-Apuleius. fWith Gerbert, practical number work (logistics) for the first time gained equal status with theoretical number work (arithmetic) as a subject of formal advanced teaching. He developed speed in arithmetical operations through his revival of the use of the abacus and his introduction from Spain of the 9 Hindu-Arabic numerals (without zero)`For two hundred years after GerbertFs time the abacists reigned supremeF (H. Lattin, The Letters of Gerbert (1969), p. 19).
