Arabus et Latinus

Ptolemaeus Arabus et Latinus on Austrian radio

The radio program Dimensionen - die Welt der Wissenschaft of the Austrian radio ORF on Monday, 20 January 2014, was devoted to Ptolemaeus Arabus et Latinus. Under the title "Ptolemäus neu gelesen. Ein wissenschaftlicher Irrtum und sein kulturelles Erbe", Sabrina Adlbrecht presented our project on the basis of interviews with Prof. Dr. Dag Nikolaus Hasse, Prof. Dr. P. Kunitzsch und Dr. Benno van Dalen. The website of this radio program can be found here. The program is no longer accessible through the ORF website, but we are inquiring about the possibility of making it available on the PAL website.
