Hermann of Carinthia: The Search of the Heart

“Every question of astronomy… is either in thought or in speech.”

In the 1140s AD, Hermann of Carinthia assembled instructions from medieval Arabic-speaking authorities on interpreting the unstated thoughts of clients (now called “consultation charts”), often using a “victor” or mubtazz or almuten for topics or the chart. Hermann also offered his own reflections on the proper balancing of dignities, house rank, and planetary strength.

Leopold of Austria: Compilation on the Science of the Stars

Leopold of Austria’s Compilation is a handy 13th Century guide to all branches of astrology, written around 1271. Sometimes called a “shorter Bonatti,” Leopold draws on many of the same Arabic astrologers as Bonatti does, but often from different Latin translators. These include Sahl b. Bishr, Abu Ma’shar, ‘Umar al-Tabari, ‘Ali al-‘Imrani, al-Kindi, and others.
