When the listener arrives at natural philosophy, he will taste the first elements of astronomy
and geometry. . . . However, after understanding the principles of those disciplines, he will

easily understand what is said by Aristotle. And so, he will be considered to have learned

enough of those disciplines that pertain to philosophy if he has studied that brief little work

on the sphere [i.e, Sacrobosco] and the Theorica planetarum, in which the elements of

astronomy are contained, and in geometry, the first book of Euclid.53
