(1) Leben und Wirken des Johannes Müller von Könisberg genannt Regiomontanus (2) Johannes Kepler Gesammelte Werke

Abstract

FOR those who date the beginning of modern astronomy from Tycho Brahe, and confine their interest to the subsequent period, there is good excuse. Yet there were great men before that time, who gave themselves to the task of dissipating the intellectual mists of the Middle Ages. As-Copernicus is accepted as an impressive figure of the earlier sixteenth century, so Regiomontanus is an outstanding figure in the fifteenth. For various reasons it seems particularly difficult to arrive at a just estimate of the importance of Regiomontanus, and therefore a scholarly monograph on his life and work has great value and interest.
