The Forms of Latin Mathematical and Scientific Expressions from the Earliest Times until A.D.1200

Preparation for publication of a Latin mathematical and scientific lexicon from Antiquity to the Middle Ages. (24 months)

Expressions of mathematical and scientific assumptions, concepts, and activities were important for Latin culture, not only in technical literature but also in common communications. This study of Latin vocabulary will discuss over 2200 forms and phrases which are known in early Latin writings, tables, and diagrammes from the Roman Republic through the Early Middle Ages until A.D.1200. It should contribute to a better understanding of that culture in the classical and medieval periods. That would impact upon humanistic studies of the literature and history of early Europe in which maths and sciences were more active than usually supposed.
