In a March number of The New Scientist there’s a short article entitled, ‘The Grosseteste code: Did a 13th-century English bishop understand what makes our world such a gaudy place?’ (New Scientist, 3/10/2012, Vol. 213, Issue 2855). It deals with a research group at Durham (UK) called ‘Ordered Universe‘ that brings historians and physicists together to discuss the medieval contribution to science. As part of their project they are going to reexamine the manuscript transmission of Grosseteste’s scientific works.
