Caspar Peucer was a 16th-century German reformed scholar known for both his works mathematics and astronomy as well as his commentary on theological topics. One work seemingly fused his two studies ‘Divination Generibus’ – a commentary on the principles of divination in which Peucer attempted to prove astrology was a science and not a theological theory. Peucer practiced and taught Divine Providence unlike many Protestant astrologers of the time.

 

Interestingly, his theories of astrology and Protestantism led him to his own curious theories such as angels and demons were the cause of earthquakes! Other notable topics in this book include studies of witchcraft, dream interpretation, miracles, weather predictions, oracles, and theomancy.
