Project: Edition and study of the unpublished commentary by Gemma Frisius on Copernicus' De Revolutionibus.

project duration

abstract
Gemma Frisius was one of the very first admirers of Copernicus. His handwritten comments in his copy of De Revolutionibus have never been studied. The project aims at providing a critical edition of his notes, with a commentary and a synthetic study of the evolution of his attitude towards the heliostatic world-view.
