Ancient Sundials (D-5-6)

Research project

The project is focused on ancient Greek and Roman stationary sundials. The key objectives are to identify methods of constructions and factors that determined their layouts, and to explore the development and diffusion of the different types in a long time perspective in a changing setting.

Space and Time in Neo-Platonism and Scholasticism (D-3-2)

Research project

There is little doubt that Plato’s and Aristotle’s theories of space and time laid the basis for the late ancient and the medieval debate about space and time. This project explores how the Platonic and Aristotelian heritage was interpreted and systematically developed in Late Antiquity and medieval times.
