8vo. xiv, 235 pp. 26 figs., index. Cloth, dust-jacket. Very good. In this significant study, McCluskey describes the interaction of four prevalent early medieval astronomies - divisions of the year, the dating of Easter, monastic timekeeping, and traditional geometrical astronomy. With impressive erudition, he shows how early medieval scholars preserved astronomical learning that might otherwise have disappeared and thereby prepared the way for the progress that would follow with the introduction of Greco-Islamic astronomy in the later Middle Ages.
