Coffee with a Codex: Arithmetic & Geometry

An informal lunch or coffee time to meet virtually with Kislak curators and talk about one of the manuscripts from Penn's collections. Each week we'll feature a different manuscript and the expertise of one of our curators. Everyone is welcome to attend.

April 25, 2024 was "Bring Our Children To Work Day" here at Penn, and Curator Dot Porter brought her son along for Coffee With A Codex! He enjoys math, so we'll looked at three very different manuscripts about arithmetic and geometry, dating from the 12th, 15th, and 17th centuries.

Unfortunately Dot was so excited about her guest host that she neglected to record the presentation, but you can find out more about the manuscripts they looked at in the records linked above.
