"Arabic Astrology in Medieval Europe: Texts and Practices" presented by Margaret Gaida, Ph.D. Candidate in the History of Science at the University of Oklahoma.

>From the birth of princes to the death of kings, from predicting the outcome of illnesses to ensuring the success of a marriage,  astrology ruled over many aspects of medieval life. But what were the origins of medieval astrological knowledge? This talk traces the influence of Arabic wisdom on medieval Europe from tenth-century Syria to twelfth-century Spain, to courts and universities throughout Europe at the end of the Middle Ages.

Come learn more about the middle ages just for the fun of learning!

No papers, no tests, just interesting information about life long ago.
