The Universe Of Brahe, Harmonia

Scenographia Compagis Mvndanae Brahea. Scenography of the world's construction according to (Tycho) Brahe. Brahe appreciated the Copernican system, but objected to the idea of a moving Earth on the basis of physics, astronomy, and religion. Brahe believed in a "geo-heliocentric" system, (Tychonic system) which he developed in the late 1570s. In such a system, the sun, moon, and stars circle a central Earth, while the five planets orbit the Sun. The essential difference between the heavens (including the planets) and the Earth remained Motion stayed in the ethereal heavens; immobility stayed with the heavy sluggish Earth. It was a system that Tycho said violated neither the laws of physics nor sacred scripture with stars located just beyond Saturn and of reasonable size. Illustration by Andreas Cellarius (1596-1665) a Dutch-German cartographer, best known for his Harmonia Macrocosmica of 1660, a major star atlas.
