Heliocentrica non Credo,
This review is from: The Discarded Image: An Introduction to Medieval and Renaissance Literature (Paperback)
This book was mentioned by Fred Gettings in his book on the medieval symbolism of the Tarot. It is probably a set book for students of English Language but I would follow Gettings and recommend it to esotericals. He explains subjects like the four humours in relation to personality and how the universe looked to people before Copernicus. He looks at the classics as they were known before the renaissance and how astrology and church doctrine had to rub along together.Anyone who wants to study traditional astrogy or magic will find this a useful way of making the necessary alterations to our modern "rational" worldview.
