Description

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.
