Visualizations of astronomical Knowledge in Early Modern Rome

Ulrike Feist studied art history and history at Humboldt University in Berlin and the Università degli Studi di Roma »La Sapienza.« Between 2006 and 2008 she was stipendiary of the graduate school »Fields of Knowledge in Modernity« at the University of Augsburg, since 2008 she has been working as a research associate at the Institute of Art and Visual History of Humboldt University as well as at the Research Collegium for the Advanced Study of Picture Act and Embodiment. In her 2010 dissertation on »Visualizations of Astronomical Knowledge in Early Modern Rome,« she examined astronomical images against the background of the respective patron relationships, showing in result that a successful reception history depended less on the correctness of the visualized knowledge than on the chosen strategies of visualization and the production of visual evidence.
