The Toledan Tables in Castilian: Excerpts of the Planetary Equations (2012)


A recently recovered bifolio consisting of four pages contains excerpts of tables for the equations of the planets with headings in Castilian. Analysis of its contents, both astronomical and terminological, indicates that in all likelihood these excerpts represent parts of the Toledan Tables, and offer the first evidence for a copy of them in Castilian.
