The Sun in the Church - Catherdrals as Solar Observatories

The Sun in the Church - Catherdrals as Solar Observatories HEILBRON, J.l

Between 1650 and 1750 four Catholic churches were the best solar observatories in the world. Built to fix a date for Easter, they also housed instruments that threw light on the disputed geometry of the solar system. This work tells how observatories came to be and how they worked.
