The Hebrew Translation of Euclid’s “Data”

This project is dedicated to Jacob ben Makhir’s Hebrew translation of Euclid’s Data, completed in 1272 and titled Seffer ha-Mattanot. Jacob ben Makhir ibn Tibbon, known also as Profatius Judaeus (1236–1304), translated Euclid’s Data from Hunayn ibn Ishaq’s Arabic translation. This is the first research undertaken on a Hebrew translation of Data.
