During this show I will be interviewing one of the leading scholars on Medieval astrology in the world today, Dr. Benjamin Dykes. 

Last month Dr. Dykes published a translation of a Medieval astrological treatise on horary and electional astrology by al-Kindi titled The Forty Chapters.  This week he has released another important translation by a 12th century author named Hermann of Carinthia.  The treatise is titled The Search of the Heart, and it contains a wealth of new information the use of consultation charts and the divination of thoughts in early Medieval astrology. 

During the interview we will focus on what new information Dr. Dykes has found during the course of translating these texts, and what the implications are for our understanding of the history and practice of horary astrology.
