Sixteenth century French mathematician Johannes Buteo published an influential logistical study of Noah's Ark in 1554. The treatise Arca Noe, Cuius Formae, Capacitatisque Fueirt, Libellus originally appeared as part of his Opera Geometrica.
This was the first work to seriously consider the logistical details of the Ark, including its construction, capacity, and an estimation of the number of inhabitants and food and provisions required. Other logistical studies of Noah's ark appeared in the 150 years following Buteo's work, and all based their innovations on Buteo's pioneering study. Presented here for the first time is Buteo's entire work in English as The Shape and Capacity of Noah's Ark.
