    • The role of images in the history of knowledge between 1200 and 1500
    • The special interplay between astronomy, astrology, and ancient mythology
    • The development of book culture at royal courts, universities, and among the urban bourgeoisie

    Aims and Scope

    The second volume of Medieval and Renaissance Constellations concludes a research project that for the first time collected and edited all of the illustrated astronomical and astrological manuscripts from 800–1500. It has created a remarkable new foundation for our understanding of vernacular pictorial culture, the reception of antiquity, and the astronomical and astrological sciences in the Middle Ages and Renaissance.
