Description

From scientific texts to philosophy and literature, the omnipresence of the stars as an important point of connection between cultures, geographical areas, and centuries is clear. This panel seeks to investigate these connections by looking specifically at formal and informal astronomy/astrology/eschatology in their wide variety of applications during the Medieval period, specifically relating to the concept of time.
