Abstract

In età medievale, autorevoli esponenti del cristianesimo hanno condannato l’astrologia, in quanto forma di idolatria che nega il libero arbitrio. Per questo, a partire dal XII secolo, il rinnovato interesse per questa forma di sapere ha spinto alcuni pensatori a dimostrarne la compatibilità con la fede cristiana. Il presente articolo mira a dimostrare che la questione è stata affrontata non solo dall’Epistola ad Peripateticos di Pietro Alfonso, dal Liber cursuum di Raimondo di Marsiglia, dal Liber introductorius di Michele Scoto e dall’anonimo Speculum Astronomiae, come precedenti e importanti studi hanno già evidenziato, ma anche dal Cause et cure di Ildegarda di Bingen.
