    Edith Dudley Sylla (2001). Walter Burley's Physics Commentaries and the Mathematics of Alteration. Early Science and Medicine 6 (3):149-184.

Here I am interested in texts that might reflect the context of Copernicus, and, in particular those before 1500. John Buridan and Albert of Saxony were fourteenth century authors influential in Cracow (...)
