Medieval Astronomy Masterpiece
In a remarkable discovery, a medieval manuscript page has shed new light on astronomy before the Renaissance. Accidentally found at Austria’s Melk Abbey, this page, dating back to before 1490, showcases the geometric principles used in medieval astronomy. Its top panels depict lunar and solar eclipses, while the lower left section illustrates the Ptolemaic Solar System, explaining planetary movement according to Ptolemy’s Earth-centered model. Additionally, the page includes a chart for calculating Easter Sunday in the Julian calendar. This intriguing find offers valuable insight into the scientific understanding of the cosmos in the Middle Ages.
