Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of proper nouns, terms and concepts relevant to the discussion on visual representations presented in this book Observing the World through Images: Diagrams and Figures in the Early-Modern Arts and Sciences. The book investigates the roles that visual representations played in promoting new conceptions of the cosmos at the time of revolutionary changes in the way in which the universe was perceived, as well as in the development of astronomical instruments and observational techniques. Isabelle Pantin opens the volume by addressing the collection's main theme: the value of inter-disciplinary comparison.

Keywords: cosmos; Early-Modern arts; Early-Modern sciences; Isabelle Pantin
