An account of astrology from its beginnings in Mesopotamia, focusing on the Greco-Roman world, Ancient Astrology examines the theoretical development and changing social and political role of astrology.
About the Series
The volumes in Sciences of Antiquity explore how the ancients saw, interpreted and handled the natural world, from the elements to the most complex of living things. Their discussions on these matters formed a resource for those who later worked on the same topics, including scientists. A consequent purpose is to provide historians with an understanding of the materials with which later writers, rather than passively receiving and transmitting ancient ideas, constructed their own world view.
