Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In the history of astronomy, Islamic astronomy or Arabic astronomy refers to the astronomical developments made by the Islamic civilisation between the 8th and 15th centuries. It closely parallels the genesis of other Islamic sciences in its assimilation of foreign material and the amalgamation of the disparate elements of that material to create a science that was essentially Islamic. These include Indian and Sassanid works in particular. Some Hellenistic texts were also translated and built upon as well.

The main article for this category is Islamic astronomy.
