Watch this short video on early modern astrologer Simon Forman and The Casebook Project.

The script for the video was written by Dr Lauren Kassell (1998), Director of The Casebook Project. The project is working to make available online all the astrological records of Simon Forman and Richard Napier. Around 80,000 consultations were recorded by Forman and Napier between 1596 and 1634. The project is funded by the Wellcome Trust and is being run in partnership with the Bodleian Libraries. To learn more about the project and to view the reocrds, please visit the project’s website:
