ARCHIMEDES PALIMPSEST TRANSLATION PDF

The Archimedes Palimpsest is a parchment codex palimpsest , originally a Greek copy of an otherwise unknown work of Archimedes of Syracuse and other authors. It was commissioned in the 10th-century Eastern Roman Byzantine Empire at a time when mathematical studies there were revived by the former Greek Orthodox archbishop of Thessaloniki, Leo the Geometer. The text was later overwritten with a Christian religious work by 13th-century monks in Palestine, where the manuscript had been taken following the fall of Byzantine Constantinople in to the knights of the Fourth Crusade. Concealed for over 70 years, a forger added pictures to some of its pages to increase its value. The text under these forged pictures, as well as additional text previously unreadable, has been revealed by scientific and scholarly work from to on images produced by ultraviolet , infrared , visible and raking light , and X-ray. All images and scholarly transcriptions with metadata are now freely available on the web at the Archimedes Digital Palimpsest see External Links below , now hosted on OPenn [3] and other web sites for free use under the Creative Commons License CC BY.

The subject of this website is a manuscript of extraordinary importance to the history of science, the Archimedes Palimpsest. This thirteenth century prayer book contains erased texts that were written several centuries earlier still.

These erased texts include two treatises by Archimedes that can be found nowhere else, The Method and Stomachion. The manuscript sold at auction to a private collector on the 29th October Since that date the manuscript has been the subject of conservation, imaging and scholarship, in order to better read the texts. The Archimedes Palimpsest project, as it is called, has shed new light on Archimedes and revealed new texts from the ancient world.

These new texts include speeches by an Athenian orator from the fourth century B. The project, which is in its twelfth year, has generated a great deal of public curiosity, as well as the interest of scholars throughout the world. All the raw imaging data, as well as transcriptions of the unique texts in the manuscript have been published on the web. All sorts of information about the Archimedes Palimpsest and the project to retrieve its text can be found on this site, and there is even more to see in the exhibition.
