The conflict of Wisby, at which 1800 rapidly assembled peasants collected in useless to protect their urban from the onslaught of Waldemar of Denmark, could be the main celebrated medieval conflict in Scandinavia and but, have been it now not for the mass graves of the defenders, it might be all yet unknown to Western scholars of medieval heritage. The peat bathroom during which the our bodies have been hurriedly buried after days within the scorching sunlight preserved not just bones but additionally harnesses and accoutrements, leaving an important archaeological list for the interval. released initially in 1939, Bengt Thordemans paintings at the conflict, constructed from the millions of artefacts stumbled on within the mass burial, has been brought up in nearly each bibliography at the topics of palms and armour and used as a key resource for the courting of medieval cash.

Example text

341). If the axis or major axis of the conic section is not normal to the mirror, there can be two points of reflection, because in that case two lines within the given plane can be drawn normal to the mirror’s surface from the section’s focus, which lies where the cutting plane intersects the cone’s axis. 45, p. 341-342). Therefore, since an infinite number of cutting planes can be passed through the viewpoint along the normal dropped from it to the mirror, an infinite number of conic sections can be formed on the mirror’s surface.

45, p. 341-342). Therefore, since an infinite number of cutting planes can be passed through the viewpoint along the normal dropped from it to the mirror, an infinite number of conic sections can be formed on the mirror’s surface. Within each plane, the particular conic section will have a unique pair of lines extending from its focus to intersect the mirror along the normal. There will thus be an infinite number of such intersection-points on the exposed portion of the mirror’s surface, each serving as a point of reflection for the given viewpoint.

This lemma is used only once in subsequent analysis (proposition 31, pp. 441-446—see esp. 295, p. 445). xxxviii ALHACEN’S DE ASPECTIBUS The penultimate lemma, proposition 23, lemma 5, pp. 425-426, entails dropping a line from outside a circle to a radius in that circle such that the segment of that line between where it intersects the circle and where it intersects the radius is equal to the segment of the radius between this latter point of intersection and the circle’s center. Given the circle with radius GB in figure 8, p.
