Geometer god
01/11/11

 

Science, and particularly geometry and astronomy/astrology, was linked directly to the divine for most medieval scholars. The compass in this 13th century manuscript is a symbol of God's act of creation. God has created the universe after geometric and harmonic principles, to seek these principles was therefore to seek and worship God. Image credit: Österreichische Nationalbibliothek
