Author: Finucane, Jane
Keywords: Cosmology -- History

Issue Date: 2006
Abstract: Supplementary material to accompany 'Science, Time & Community: A Digital Exhibition', a project researched by the M. Phil. candidates in Reformation and Enlightenment Studies 2005/6 which concentrated its inquiry on a specific aspect of early modern cosmology: the fusion and interchange of 1.perceptions of time (including eschatological dimensions, age of the world, end of creation) and the use of predictors of the future by means of astronomy/astrology and the interpretation of monstrous births 2.attempts to build a golden age, an ideal society, the creative imagination of improvers and ways in which early modern science assisted or cut across those attempts: mathematical principles to be identified in the harmony of the spheres and applied to human construction (such as fortifications and ideal cities), alchemy and geology, 3. the impact of both - perceptions of time and exploration of early modern science - on the various experiences of community life and its transformation.
