The Ordered Universe Project

Getting Hands-on with Medieval Science
 A public lecture presented by Professor Giles E. M. Gasper (Durham University) and Dr Seb Falk (University of Cambridge).

This lecture is part of the ‘Light Fantastic!: Robert Grosseteste’s De motu supercelestium, De motu corporali et luce, De cometis and De luce ' symposium, which involves the first visit by the Ordered Universe team to Ireland, which will explore three treatises, in which light plays the dominant role. The symposium features  the final reading of the treatise De cometis – On Comets, and the second run-through of the De more corporali et luce – On Bodily Motion and Light. This last work presages the extraordinary boldness in the role given to light in the fabric of the universe of the De luce – On Light. One of the first treatises read by the Ordered Universe, ten years ago.
