PhD research

The Mundane Houses (and What They Contain) in Demotic Sources

Supervisor: Prof. dr. Olaf Kaper

PhD research on the history of astrology, in particular on the origin of the ‘Twelve Mundane Houses’ (of which the best known is the First House or the ascendant) in Egyptian sources of the Greco-Roman Period. The still familiar zodiacal symbols and even the origin of the use of and symbols for zero, the ‘Hindu-Arabic’ numerals, and the decimal system are sought to be connected with the practice of astrology in the Hellenistic world.
