In preparation

Several book publications are scheduled. They are of two main types: Collective volumes concluding each of the three phase of the ALFA project; Critical editions and monographs analysing key sources and issues in the Alfonsine astronomical traditions. They will be gathered in a single ALFA collection created with Brepols. All title are provisional and may be changed.
