Abstract. The corpus of sources for the study of the Arabic tradition of Euclidean optics is formed by a few genres of works. First there are the founding texts of the tradition, namely the Arabic versions of the Euclidean text, representing a major part of the original Greek as found in Heiberg’s Euclidis Optica.

The earliest surviving manuscript of Optics is in Greek and dates from the 10th century AD. The work deals almost entirely with the geometry of vision, with little reference to either the physical or psychological aspects of sight.

Those works are part of a corpus known as “the Little Astronomy” that also includes the Moving Sphere by Autolycus of Pitane. The early writers discussed here treated vision more as a geometrical than as a physical, physiological, or psychological problem.

The first known author of a treatise on geometrical optics was the geometer Euclid (c. BC– BC). Euclid began his study of optics as he began his study of geometry, with a set of self-evident axioms.
