Dot Porter, Curator, Digital Research Services at the University of Pennsylvania Library, offers a video orientation to Penn Library’s LJS 216, Tractatum de spera., by Joannes deSacro Bosco . This manuscript was written in Paris, between 1256 and 1270, in Latin, and it is a collection of three scientific works, nearly contemporary with the life of the author: one work on cosmology and astronomy, one on arithmetic, and one on the division of time according to the movements of the sun and moon.
