Engraving of Ptolemy, an Egyptian astronomer

Engraving of Ptolemy (AD c100-170), an Egyptian astronomer. The Ptolematic system held that the Earth was at the centre of the Universe with the planets revolving about it. This view dominated astronomical thinking until it was unseated by Copernicus in 1543 in his work De Revolutionibus, in which he showed that the Earth revolved around the Sun. Engraving from Great Astronomers by Sir Robert S. Ball, FRS; published by Ibister & Co, London (1895)
