Victor. If medieval theologians drew on Augustine and the encyclopedists for geometric images, the practical geometry writers got ''sub-Euclidean" fragments from the agrimensores, and Archimedean ideas, especially, from Vitruvius Rufus and Epaphroditus, whose defective texts will be reviewed later for Archimedean content as a legacy to the geometries of Gerbert and Hugh of St. Victor. In a third study, Lon R. Shelby reviewed the place of geometry among the seven liberal arts (Shelby, 1983). Medieval university statutes on the teaching of mathematics are few and not very detailed.

The volume of a cylindrical cask was height times area of base, as in Heron. To compute the volume of a tapered circular cask was more difficult. Nipsus' process seems to measure it as the frustum of a cone by an averaging method of Metrica (Heron, 1903, II, 9), with Archimedean ratio 11/14 for p/4, through manuscript witness for the text here is defective. Nipsus gave five ways to find lengths of various triangle lines. Each used the Pythagorean right triangle theorem that the square on the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares on the sides.

The text is divided into eight books. After an introductory analysis of trigonometric ideas, Clavius told how to use different types of quadrants to compute lengths and angles (Books 2 and 3). " There follow sections on Geodesy, Isoperimetry, and diverse other topics. , to construct a square equal in area to a circle with a given radius). In the course of his argument, Clavius evaluated the work of several predecessors and contemporaries, among them Albrecht Dürer and Joseph Scaliger. Dürer's Underweysung der Messung mit dem Zirkel und Richtscheyt (1525) was itself a practical geometry for artisans and builders.
