A collection of Medieval brain games

A manuscript drafted by the Renaissance mathematician and economist, Luca Pacioli, written in the vernacular, probably towards the end of the fifteenth century. This work, which begins with a learned description of algebraic and geometric principles complete with 98 illustrations, continues by offering an enjoyable series of mathematical and topological pastimes, card games and riddles which have lost none of their original, thoroughly enjoyable character, as they totally absorb the reader in the engaging pursuit of answers and solutions.

We have 1 facsimile edition of the manuscript "De Viribus Quantitatis": De Viribus Quantitatis facsimile edition, published by Aboca Museum, 2009

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
