Astrologie, divination et magie dans les cours (XIIe-XVIIe siècle) October 09, 2014 -to- October 11, 2014
Depuis le XIIe siècle au moins, les cours ont été des centres de production (mécénat scientifique), de conservation (bibliothèques princières, collections, etc.) et de diffusion (interne et externe) des textes concernant les sciences de la nature. En rapport direct avec cet extraordinaire intérêt, des savoirs situés à la frontière entre le licite et l’illicite voire au delà de cette limite, tels que l’astrologie, la divination et la magie, ont occupé une place centrale. Les raisons de ce phénomène sont multiples, et leur étude constitue justement l’un des objectifs de ce colloque.

The Marginalization of Astrology March 19, 2015 -to- March 20, 2015
Astrology has been a well-established and respected part of scholarship for centuries, practiced in many cultural and geographical settings. However, in the modern world, astrology, though still very much present, has lost its scientific status and is relegated to the fringes of serious learning. In the history of the sciences, this must be regarded as a momentous shift. The definite step in the “marginalization” of astrology appears to have been taken in the seventeenth century and should therefore be regarded as an important element (rather than as a consequence) of the so-called Scientific Revolution. The reasons for this development are far from clear. Actually, even the development itself (when, where and by whom did astrology become disavowed) has so far been only poorly documented. The conference therefore aims at bringing together specialists from various fields to throw light on this intruiging question.
