Al-Biruni


Master Astronomer and Muslim Scholar of the Eleventh Century

By Bill Scheppler

Few biographies of al-Biruni exist in English, and this is the first for young adults. Al-Biruni studied medicine, physics, philosophy, mathematics, and astronomy, and possessed a profoundly stunning intellect. He helped develop mathematics, from trigonometry to calculus, mapped cities and the distances between them, and inspired others in the virtuous pursuit of knowledge.
