Reflections of the Cosmos Astronomical Itinerary

Thanks to the generosity of The Arthur and Holly Magill Foundation, American Friends has helped fund the "Reflections of the Cosmos" itinerary created by Astrophysicist, Montserrat Villar. 

The route focuses on the presence of celestial bodies and advancing knowledge in astronomy as reflected in art of the past through a selection of works from artists such as Bosch, Rubens, Patinir, Murillo, Zurbaran or Tiepolo. 
The astronomical itinerary address four main themes:
The Myth of the flat Earth
Myths in the stars
When the Moon lost its purity
The telescope revolution
