Astronomica by Marcus Manilius( Book )
366 editions published between 1473 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 2,505 libraries worldwide
MARCUS MANILIUS, who lived in the reigns of Augustus and Tiberius, is the author of the earliest treatise on astrology we possess. He tells us hardly anything about himself, and is not mentioned by any other writer. His Astronomica, a Latin didactic poem in five books, begins with an account of celestial phenomena, and then proceeds to treat of the signs of the zodiac and the twelve temples; there follow instructions for calculating the horoscoping degree, and details of chronocrators, decans, injurious degrees, zodiacal geography, paranatellonta, and other technical matters. Besides exhibiting great virtuosity in rendering mathematical tables and diagrams in verse form, the poet writes with some passion about his Stoic beliefs and shows much wit and humour in his character sketches of persons born under particular stars. Perhaps taking a lead from Virgil in his Georgics, Manilius abandons the proportions of his last book to narrate the story of Perseus and Andromeda at considerable length. In spite of its undoubted elegance, the Astronomica is a difficult work, and this edition provides in addition to the first English prose translation a full guide to the poem, with copious explanatory notes and illustrative figures

Die Astrologie ist eine der Wirkmächte der Antike, die heute noch lebendig ist, und daher mit dem Christentum, das sie bekämpfte, durchaus vergleichbar. Auch die Aufklärung verdammte die Lehre so sehr, dass eine Beschäftigung mit ihr immer noch weithin als suspekt gilt. Will man jedoch einen Text wie das astrologische Weltgedicht des Manilius wirklich verstehen, muss man die Lehren und Denkweisen der antiken Astrologen kennen. Dies gilt in besonderem Maße für das fünfte Buch über die Paranatellonten (extrazodiakalen Sternbilder), in dem der Dichter den „Gipfel seiner dichterischen Kunst“ erreicht (F. Boll)
