    “This Comet or New Star”: Theology and the Interpretation of the Nova of 1572.Charlotte Methuen - 1997 - Perspectives on Science 5 (4):499.
    This article examines a set of letters and observational reports that passed between Ludwig of Württemberg and Wilhelm of Hesse in response to the nova of 1572. Discussing the terminology used in this debate, it demonstrates that the terms “star” and “comet” were not unambiguous for sixteenth-century authors. A consideration of the relationship between accuracy of observation and the accuracy of the conclusions drawn from them, judged in the terms of twentieth-century astronomy, shows that those observers with the best instruments (...)

    Special Providence and Sixteenth-Century Astronomical Observation: Some Preliminary Reflections.Charlotte Methuen - 1999 - Early Science and Medicine 4 (2):99-113.
    This paper considers the role of the doctrine of providence, and particularly the distinction between general and special providence, in the interpretation of astronomical observations in the sixteenth century, with particular reference to the discussion of the 1572 nova by Lutheran astronomers. It suggests that the essential difference between the events of special providence and those of general providence could be used to legitimate observations which contradicted accepted Aristotelian physics. The decision that the underlying explanatory system must be revised thus (...)
