|Description:||Epact provides a rich database of texts and images for exploration and reveals in detail the variety of ingenious and exquisite scientific instruments devised before 1600. Through these instruments it demonstrates the vitality and historical significance of the programme of practical mathematics which led to their creation as well as offering a new perspective on the shared material and scientific culture that flourished during the medieval and Renaissance period across the different nations of Europe. -- from the Website|
