Al-Qabīṣī (Alcabitius), The Introduction to Astrology, editions of the Arabic and Latin texts and an English translation [by] Charles Burnett, Keiji Yamamoto [&] Michio Yano, Londres, Warburg Institute (Warburg Institute studies and texts, 2), 2004, viii + 515 pp.
- In late 10th-century Aleppo, Al-Qabisi [Abu al-Saqr Abd al-Aziz ibn Uthman al-Qabisi, m. 967] wrote a concise introduction to the craft of the judgements of the stars, drawing upon a wide range of Greek, Indian, Persian and Arabic sources [Kitab al-Mudkhal ila sina'at ahkam al-nujum]. John of Seville's twelfth-century Latin translation led to Alcabitius's work becoming the standard introduction to astrology in Western Europe. This new book gives the first critical editions of the Arabic and Latin texts with an annotated English translation. It also includes: catalogues of all the manuscripts of the known medieval versions of the work and of the Renaissance editions of the Latin text; a citation of the work in Byzantine Greek; an edition of another astrological work, On the Conjunctions of the Planets, attributed in Latin to Alcabitius, and comprehensive Arabic-Latin and Latin-Arabic glossaries. This book should provide the foundation for any future study of al-Qabisi/Alcabitius and his influence.
