This morning I begin teaching the first several weeks of our Cosmology course at New College Franklin. In preparation for the class, I developed a partial list of cosmological ideas that I plan on covering over the next weeks. My goal was to situate the discussion of cosmology within a greater medieval and theological context while providing enough handles that future connections and ideas can be made by students. The rest of the course will cover more concrete aspects of astronomy and cosmology.

What other concepts would you have included?

On a whim I picked up a couple of books on Katherine of Aragon at a recent library sale. I found myself quickly fascinated with this woman who is so often overshadowed by her replacement, Anne Boleyn. In particular I was intrigued by the rigorous classical education she received.
