Gansten, Martin LU (2011) In Astrologies: Proceedings of the eighth annual conference of the Sophia Centre for the Study of Cosmology in Culture, University of Wales, Trinity Saint David, 24–25 July 2010
Abstract
The paper examines the reception of and revisions made to the teachings of the Italian astrologer-monk Placido de Titi (1603 – 1668) in Protestant England following the decline of astrology during the 18th century, particularly as found in the writings of John Worsdale (1766 – c. 1826), whose role in the emergence of modern astrology is to a certain extent reappraised, and of his contemporary critic Thomas Oxley (1789 – 1851).
