Astrologers in 15th-century Cairo with Fien de Block

In this episode, I talk with Fien de Block about her research on astrologers and astrological practices in the fifteenth-century Sultanate of Cairo. This was the subject of her PhD thesis titled “(Re)drawing the lines: the science of the stars in the late fifteenth century Sultanate of Cairo” (2020). Fien de Block is currently a guest professor and a researcher at the University of Gent.
