Johannes de Sacrobosco was a teacher of mathematics and astronomy at the University of Paris in the early 13th century. Little is known about his personal life, except that he was an Englishman who started his career in Oxford. But his writings outlasted his life by many centuries, and his book on astronomy De Sphaera Mundi was used as the main text at universities all over Europe until the 17th century.
