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.
