Chronology of the Astrology of the Middle East and West by Period (Used)
by Hand, Robert
Publisher: ARHAT (Robert Hand)
Book ID: 9780966226652, 0966226658
The newly revised and expanded version of the Chronology is a compilation in outline form of the major events in the history of astrology along with the major events of the history of the time. The sections covered are as follows:
- I. Early Period -- From the early roots in Mesopotamia up to the development of Horoscopic astrology.
- II. Early Greek Period -- The Pre-Socratics through Aristotle.
- III. Hellenistic Period -- The founding period of horoscopic astrology in Egypt up until the Roman Period.
- IV. The Roman Era -- The high point of Greek language astrology up until the fall of the Western Empire.
- V. The Byzantine Period -- Greek language astrology after the fall of the Western Empire in Byzantium.
- VI. The Classical Period in the Middle East -- The rise and fall of the various empires in the Middle East up until the advent of Islam.
- VII. The Arabic Era -- The high point of Arabic language astrology in which Western astrology assumed something like its current form.
- VIII. The Latin Period -- The period of the transmission of astrology from the Arabic world to the Latin West.
- IX. Renaissance -- The high point of astrology in the Latin West and the beginning of efforts to reform and remodel astrology.
- X. The English Period and the Decline -- The period of Lilly and Placidus in which astrology reached a peak in the English world and began the decline from being a generally recognized discipline
In addition there has been added a revised version of my essay on the origins of astrology in ancient times now entitled "On the Roots of Horoscopic Astrology." This essay clarifies a number of murky areas in the early history of astrology such as where astrology originated and what is the relationship between Western and Eastern astrology.

Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
The Voynich Manuscript

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
