Lettie S. Multhauf's description: Georg von Peurbach was born in Peurbach, Austria. He studied under Nicolas Cusa and learned Greek from Cardinal Bessarion in order to be able to read Ptolemy. He went to study at the University of Vienna in 1446, and from 1453 he lectured there on astronomy and Roman poets. His lectures on the movements of the planets were so famous that they were printed in 1472 under the title Theoricae novae planetarum, and went through many editions. He was the first in Western Europe to explain the epicycle movements according to Ptolemy. With his pupil and assistant Regiomontanus, he made observations between 1456 and 1461 of the sun, eclipses, comets, etc. from which it became clear to them that the Alphonsine tables were wrong several degrees
