133. INSIDE THE STARGAZER’S PALACE: THE 16TH CENTURY TRANSFORMATION OF SCIENCE

In 1543 Nicolaus Copernicus declared the earth revolved around the Sun, upturning centuries of scholastic presumption and the teachings of the Ancients. We now see this as the beginning of the Scientific Revolution, heralding a new age: disenchanted, sceptical and free from mysticism. But omens, elixirs and alchemy were never far away from observations of the natural world that still hold true today. Violet Moller lets us glimpse into the workshops, observatories and libraries that cultivated a multidisciplinary approach. As knowledge spread out from the church and technology took it across borders, nothing was beneath investigation.
