Arithmetica, aus der Margarita Philosophia (1504) des Kartäuserpriors Gregor Reisch

  • Beschreibung: Pythagoras (rechts im Bild) und Boethius (links im Bild) tragen einen Wettstreit vor der personifizierten Arithmetica aus. Während Boethius die Aufgabe mit der moderneren Methode der „Rechnung mit der Feder“ – also mit indischen Ziffern – bereits gelöst hat und stolz dreinschaut, ist Pythagoras mit seiner „Rechnung auf der Linie“ noch beschäftigt. Das Mittelalter hielt, beide Male irrtümlich, diese Männer für die Erfinder der einen und der anderen Rechenweise.
