Join Dr. Rienk Vermij from the University of Oklahoma for "Aristotelian Meteorology: Fire Dragons, Blood Rains, and Comets".

Dr. Rienk Vermij presents, "Aristotelian Meteorology: Fire Dragons, Blood Rains, and Comets"

One of the standard texts at medieval universities was Aristotle's Meteorology, which provided explainations for phenomena such as rain, dew, comets, and earthquakes. Medieval philosophers applied these theories to phenomena such as blood rains, will-o'-the-wisps, and fire dragons as well (none of them mentioned by Aristotle), taking away the ominous meaning of such phenomena and explaining them in a purely natural way. Dr. Vermij is a Professor with the History of Science at the University of Oklahoma. The Medieval Fair Free Lecture Series is Co-sponsored by the Center for Medieval & Renaissance Studies at the University of Oklahoma. Lectures start at 6:15 p.m. and the Medieval Fair of Norman is April 6th-8th 2018.
