Comets, ‘new stars’ and other unexpected celestial phenomena up to Galileo’s telescopic discoveries have attracted the interest of historians of science, intellectual and cultural historians. These early modern ‘celestial novelties’ constitute the main subject of this volume, whose aim is to shed light on their reception and interpretation in science, natural philosophy, medicine, and their wider impact on European society.
