Astronomy In The Medieval Islamic World – Islamic Astronomers Documentary – History Videos
Islamic astronomy makes up the huge developments made in the Islamic globe, especially throughout the Islamic Golden Age (8th– 15th centuries), and primarily written in the Arabic language. These developments mainly occurred between East, Central Asia, Al-Andalus, and North Africa, and also later on in the Far East as well as India. It carefully parallels the genesis of various other Islamic scientific researches in its adaptation of foreign product as well as the amalgamation of the disparate aspects of that product to develop a scientific research with Islamic characteristics. These consisted of Greek, Sassanid, as well as Indian works in certain, which were translated and also built on. Consequently, Islamic astronomy later on had a significant influence on Byzantine as well as European astronomy (view Latin translations of the 12th century) as well as Chinese astronomy and also Malian astronomy.
A substantial number of stars in the sky, such as Aldebaran as well as Altair, as well as huge terms such as alidade, azimuth, as well as almucantar, are still described by their Arabic names. A huge corpus of literary works from Islamic astronomy stays today, numeration about 10,000 manuscripts spread throughout the world, several which have not been read or catalogued. Even so, a reasonably exact photo of Islamic task in the field of astronomy can be reconstructed.
Ahmad Dallal notes that, unlike the Babylonians, Greeks, as well as Indians, which had actually developed sophisticated systems of mathematical huge research study, the pre-Islamic Arabs count totally on empirical monitorings. These monitorings were based on the increasing and also adjusting of particular stars, and also this location of astronomical research study was known as anwa.

It's truly amazing how far our species have come. The very thought of the beginning of astronomy dumbfounds us, because we're so used to having everything with the click of a button. People take it for granted and one must not forget the everything has a beginning. We are still pioneers who will someday in the distance future unlock the secret of "How life began" till then, lets keep our love for astronomy, mathematics and science in our pockets.
Have a great day world.
more made up shit.
The geocentric model still works.. the sun follows around the earth and the planets follow around the sun. Nothing special there. But if you say that we orbit the sun.. its sun worship! Not to mention Airy's Failure proves a stationary Earth!
Absolutely true! It was from the Toledo libraries with Greek and Arab findings (studied deeply in El Andaluz period) that Galileo and every other European astronomers drank all the basis of stheir findings By then, fundamentalist Inquisition tended to hide this knowledge like in the times of Alexandria other religious fundamentalists did. And only in the last centuries, the truth was unveiled. It's all writen in Toledo writings! Visit Toledo, Spain (for example) and get informed. Nowadays it is not forbidden to get into true facts related to the very developed Arab science (only because those facts are Arab science and even medical achievements 🙂 ). The middle ages in Europe were only ignorance and dark……
False! There was nothing islamic about the continuous discoveries made by the medieval high vultures invaded and destroyed by the stone age bedouin arabs. It was the slave of the arabs who made the discoveries, never any arab. And after just a few generations of arab occupation, all science was eliminated even in the occupied provinces. Islam is an anti-scientific political ideology which strives back to the stone age and violently actively destroys all progress for humanity.
It’s great to read something that’s both enjoyable and provides pratsagimdc solutions.
