The workshop is the first a series that takes place over four years, in which humanities scholars and scientists examine in depth scientific work of the 13th-century English master Robert Grosseteste. The workshop’s leadership includes Cecilia Panti, faculty at University Tor Vergata and will contain sessions of intensive co-reading, translation, and interpretation of two treatises. Perspectives from history, philosophy, theology, paleography, textual analysis—and from the modern scientific inheritors of the science—prove essential to recover a deep understanding of the texts (which in this case will be the De spheara and the Compotus Correctorius).
