A Franciscan Friar who became the first great teacher of mathematics in the courts and universities of Renaissance Italy is the central figure of this study. Taylor has examined Paciolo's writings and has translated large portions of them for the present volume. He has pictured, as Paciolo knew them, the student life of the universities, the thronging streets of cities, the quiet monasteries and churches, and the courts of powerful dukes.
