Chapter Summary

This index of the book The Making of Copernicus presents a list of names of persons relevant to discussion of Copernicus's work, strongly indebted to older astrological discussions, hardly known in the 16th and 17th centuries. Copernicus the artist, clergyman, physician and scholar from the provinces became a doer, an active designer of a new world image. The history of the reception of Copernicus deals from the point of view of a factual affirmation and rejection of the astronomer and his doctrine, and rather as accomplishments of transformation respectively.

Keywords: 17th century; Copernicus
