This symposium, the penultimate in the current series for the Ordered Universe, explores five of Grosseteste’s shorter scientific works, De lineis (On Lines) and De natura locorum (On the Nature of Places) both for the second time, and a return to De impressionibus elementorum (On the Impression of the Elements), together with new translations of De colore (On Colour) and De iride (On the Rainbow).

Our next, and final symposium of the series will take place at the University of York, in January 2020.
