(... and ASTRONOMY)
Schola Astronomy is a practical, observational attempt to remedy this. We'll learn to identify and delight in the planets, principal stars, and constellations of the whole sky for every month of the year, learn some of the history and literary connections (where stars and constellations show up in poetry and other literature, including the myths behind them as well as Biblical connections), learn to find directions and time by the stars (even when the North Star is not in view), make sundials, and have regular star-gazing assignments. We'll survey ancient, medieval, and modern astronomy and cosmology. No advanced math is involved, although some basic math is, and there are no prerequisites other than some knowledge of earth science. No equipment except the textbooks is required, although some inexpensive items (binoculars, red map lights, sky atlases, etc.) will be recommended for those who are interested in further exploration. The real point is to learn to find your way comfortably around the night sky and connect that knowledge with history and literature from Homer to C. S. Lewis.
The course is best suited to students sixteen years old and up, and especially those who have done a fair amount of ancient and medieval literature, but these are not strict requirements.
