Samsó, Julio, "La Urŷūza de Ibn Abī l-Riŷāl y su comentario por Ibn Qunfuḏ: astrología e historia en el Magrib en los siglos XI y XIV", Al-Qanṭara, 30/1-2 (2009), 7-39 i 321-360.
- A quick revision of the available information on the life and works of Ibn Abi l-Rijal (fl. Tunis ca. 996-1048) and an analysis of the contents of his Urjuza fi ahkam al-nujum which are compared to those of his better known Kitab al-Bari' fi ahkam al-nujum. The conclusion is that both works are independent and that the Urjuza is not a summary of the Bari'. The paper continues with biobibliographical data of the historian, mathematician and astrologer Ibn Qunfudh al-Qusanini (1339-1407), who is the author of a commentary of Ibn Abi l-Rijal's Urjuza dedicated to Abu Bakr b. Abi Mujahid Ghazi Ibn al-Kas, vizier of the Merinid sultans Abu Faris (1366-372) and Abu Zayyan (1372-1374). The work was probably written during the latter's brief reign and before 1375, the date in which the dedicatee was exiled to Majorca. The work continues with an analysis of the contents of the commentary, the sources quoted, the astrological techniques used both by Ibn Qunfudh and by Ibn Abi l-Rijal, and the use by the commentator of a set of astronomical tables derived from the zij of Ibn Ishaq. We find, finally, a detailed commentary of the horoscopes contained in Ibn Qunfudh's work which includes one corresponding to the vernal equinox of the year 571 AD, in which there was a conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter which announced the arrival of Islam. There are eleven more horoscopes (two of them published previously) which constitute an astrological history of Merinid Morocco between 1348 and 1366. Concerning the nine horoscopes analysed here, in six of them it has been possible to identify the subject or the event motivating the prediction, while three remain unidentified.
