Project B06

Premodern Cosmological Formations of Knowledge: Institutionalized Metaphysics of Astronomy within Renaissance Academic Networks

This project scrutinizes the transformation of medieval – Sacrobosco: De Sphaera (c. 1230) – and Arabic astronomical traditions during the period that certain modern scholars have associated with the so-called ‘Corpernican Revolution’. What this project seeks to show is that far from being a period of radical change in astronomical knowledge, the sixteenth century witnesses a lively culture of transmission and adaptation of older astronomical knowledge.

A list of publications and events organized by the project can be accessed on the German CRC 980 website.
