  1. Frankly, I cannot remember any mathematical achievements by Alcuin of York (735 – 804), Bede the Venerable (c. 673-735) or Boethius, Anicus (480 – 524), just to begin with A and B ;-)

  2. How come they have Gelfond but not Gelfand?!

  3. [...] Gevonden via Mathematics under the Microscope. [...]

  4. Bede the Venerable, judging by Wikipedia, knew how to compute date of Easter, which, at his time in Europe, was quite an achievement.

    Re Gelfand – this is strange, indeed.
