      Severus Sebokht: Bridge between Indian and Arab Science
      by Father Dale A. Johnson

      Syriac Christians needed an astronomical based mathematics to compute
      the date of Easter. Their work in these areas in later centuries
      formed the basis of calculations for Moslems who needed to determine
      the hours of prayer. Much of this work was difficult and nearly
      impossible until advancements were made by combining the work of
      Indian mathematicians and Greek philosophers. Syriac scholars were in
      a unique position both geographically and linguistically to merge the
      mathematical sciences of the East and West and assist in the
      advancement of astronomically based mathematics that are often
      credited to the Arab/Islamic world of the 8th and 9th centuries. But
      it was a particular Syriac Bishop who was the true genius and
      interface between Indian and Greek sciences.
