Astrology and Religion among the Greeks and Romans
by Franz Cumnot
Around the turn of the 20th century, Franz Cumnot compiled numerous sources of ancient astrology and astronomy, including those from Mesopatamia and the Mediterranean. The following text summarizes these documents and includes Cumnots theories. Mesopotamia was the birthplace of astrology and astronomy -- this knowledge moved west to Greece and Rome, where it became integrated into paganism. Indeed, many remnants of the ancients astrology are with us today, such as the seven day week.
