Phases Of An Eclipse
Photograph - Photograph
This illustration shows a campaign planned in accordance with the phases of an eclipse. Military textbooks written at any time between 400 BC and AD1700 often contain material on the need to consult soothsayers and astrologers as to whether an action is auspicious or not. The illustration is from a 17th century work on the wars between the Austrian Empire and the Ottomans.
