The science curriculum in Jesuit colleges was based primarily on the works of Aristotle, Euclid, and the medieval mathematician Joannes de Sacro Bosco, with the Jesuit professors often composing their own textbooks on these authors. This handbook on Aristotle's Parva naturalia is part of a massive commentary on the works of Aristotle (known as the Cursus Coimbricensus) published by the faculty of the Jesuit college at Coimbra, Portugal, during the last quarter of the sixteenth century.
