Description

The Most Important Scientific Book In The History Of Humankind

One of the most important and most valuable manuscripts in the World and the life work of
Nicolaus Copernicus, with a presentation of the heliocentric theory. Handwritten by the author, famous XVI-century Polish astronomer, in greek and latin. In 1999, the original work was entered into the UNESCO list “Memory Of The World” and is kept at the Jagiellonian Library in Cracow/Poland.

It has been 500 years since Polish astronomer, Nicolaus Copernicus, had established his heliocentric theory. The discovery that the earth actually revolves around the sun was an enormous breakthrough in the history of mankind. This idea that the earth is not the center of the universe, was expressed long before Copernicus’ times, but it was only this great astronomer who proved it scientifically, in terms that could not be disputed.

Nicolaus Copernicus revolutionized science and the perception of the world from the historical
perspective. His work „On The Revolutions” concerned politics, science, religion and modern
philosophy by adapting the Copernican principle that the earth is in no way exceptional in the
universe.
