Chapter Summary

This bibliography contains reference articles, books, and manuscript sources of the book titled Monks, Manuscripts and Sundials. The navicula sundial, because of its rarity and attractive form, has interested curators and historians alike: Derek J. de Solla Price described it as "one of the most ingenious and sophisticated mathematical artefacts of the Middle Ages". The book brings together for the first time evidence from the surviving instruments, and written sources describing how to make or use the instrument. The entries are arranged in alphabetical order.

Keywords: manuscript sources; Middle Ages; sundials
