Lot Essay

Al-Hasan bin Muhamad bin al-Husayn al-Qumi al-Nishapuri was a mathematician and philosopher, originally from Qom but who resided in Nishapur. He wrote religious works, including a commentary on the Qur'an as well as scientific works such as a commentary on Tusi's treatise on the Almagest, Ta'bir al-tahrir (Al-Zerekly, Al-A'lam, Biographical Dictionary, Beirut, 2007, vol. 2, p.216). After moving to the Ilkhanid capital of Tabriz, he studied at the Ilkhanid observatory of Maragha, under Qutb al-Din Shirazi, himself a student of Nasir al-Din Tusi.
