2nd – 5th May, 2018: ‘Guiding Stars, Motion and Light: Robert Grosseteste’s De motu supercelestium, De motu corporali et de luce, and De sex differentiis ‘
McGill University, Montreal, Canada
This symposium, the first to be held in Canada, will explore three treatises, two for the first time, in which Robert Grosseteste explores celestial and sub-lunary phenomena. The influence of the stars and planets on human society, and on natural phenomena such as comets, are held together in a cosmological exploration which still does not feature light as the dominant element in the universe. The symposium will be held at McGill University, the home institution of Ordered Universe core team member Prof. Faith Wallis. We look forward very much to sharing knowledge and experience in Quebec!
