In this episode, which is very dear to me, I invite three previous guests of the podcast to discuss Helena Avelar’s work, in particular her book: “An Astrologer at Work in Late Medieval France. The Workbooks of S. Belle”. Helena was the co-founder of the Astra project and co-host of this podcast. She passed way unexpectedly in March 2021 before her book published. Dorian Greenbaum, Charles Burnett and Henrique Leitão join me to discuss the importance of Helena’s research and academic work.
Details on the book can be found here: https://brill.com/view/title/57551
