Spring 2020 Alumni Lecture
Tuesday 21st April 2020
18:30 - 20:00 GMT
After the decline of the Roman Empire, knowledge of astrology almost disappeared in Western Europe. In the ninth century, Latin-speaking scholars knew that Venus had something to do with love. By the twelfth century, they were drawing up accurate charts, knew about house systems, and could do sophisticated chart analysis, and a few decades later this was on the curriculum in the new universities. In this talk, Chris Mitchell will look at what caused this explosion of astrological knowledge.
Chris Mitchell has had a life-long interest in astrology, and has recently completed a PhD at the University of Leicester analysing the first textbook on astrology ever written in England in the 1170s. He holds the Diploma in Medieval Astrology from Astrologos and has an MA in Cultural Astronomy and Astrology from Bath Spa University College. He is a Board Member of the Astrological Association, and is a regular speaker at a number of astrology groups and conferences worldwide.
