    The Eclipse, the Astronomer and His Audience: Frederico Oom and the Total Solar Eclipse of 28 May 1900 in Portugal.Luís Miguel Carolino & Ana Simões - 2012 - Annals of Science 69 (2):215-238.
    This study offers a detailed analysis of an episode of the popularization of astronomy which took place in Portugal, a peripheral country of Europe, and occurring in the early twentieth century. The episode was driven by the 28 May 1900 total solar eclipse which was seen on the Iberian Peninsula .

    Mixtures, Material Substances and Corpuscles in the Early Modern Aristotelian- Th Omistic Tradition: Th E Case of Francisco Soares Lusitano.Luís Miguel Carolino - 2015 - Journal of Early Modern Studies 4 (1):9-27.
