The Authors of the Early Modern Commentaries on De sphaera

Universities were founded beginning in the 13th century, and for almost 400 years the first faculties, those for Liberal Arts, offered everywhere a similar curriculum that was based on an introduction to cosmology. These courses did not teach only a cosmological worldview but the fundaments to create a system of interconnected knowledge domains that evolved for four centuries. This lecture will show how the knowledge system was born and expanded as well as the method to conduct such analysis.
