Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter discusses how the subsequent chapters are organized in the book. Abraham Ibn Ezra (ca. 1089-ca. 1161) was born in Muslim Spain, where he received his Jewish and scientific education. The planetary terms are presented in two different formats. The first, which is typical of introductions to astrology, presents the sizes of the terms of each of the five planets in each of the twelve zodiacal signs and for each sign shows that the total sum of the degrees of the planetary terms is 30°. The second format, which is most unusual, lists the size of the terms of each of the five planets in each of the twelve zodiacal signs, winding up with the sum of the degrees of each of the five planets in the twelve zodiacal signs. The chapter also discusses genethlialogy and continuous horoscopy.
