The Ars Magna (or Ars Generalis Ultima) of Raymond Lull (1232-1316) is an astonishing attempt to systematise all possible knowledge using a rigorous computational procedure. Lull was very much ahead of his time and the working out of his system was often performed with nothing more sophisticated than some pieces of paper cut out into circles and pinned in the centre. 700 years later we have the chance to explore Lull with the convenience of a computer.
