This issue of Culture and Cosmos includes seven significant papers on the history of astrology, covering a range of periods and approaches. Roger Beck's 'The Ancient Mithraeum as a Model Universe. Part 2', touches on archaeoastronomy and classical religion [1]. Helena Avelar and Charles Burnett's analysis of a twelfth century horoscope cast by Abraham the Jew examines the technical practice of medieval astrology. Lindsay Starkey's paper on Mellin de Saint-Gelais and John Calvin, and Scott Hendrix's on Galileo, concern theoretical contexts for the European astrology of the middle ages and Renaissance. Richard Angelo Bergen's 'Paradise Lost and the Descent of Urania: from Astrology to Allegory' deals with literature, Hakan Kirko lu's 'Ilm-i nudjum and 18th century Ottoman Court Politics' examines the political uses of astrology, and Graham Douglas's 'Trystes Cosmologiques: When LEvi-Strauss Met the Astrologers' explores one of the twentieth century's most important anthropologist's attitudes to astrology [2]. Anything LEvi-Strauss said about astrology is of interest by definition, in view of his authorship of a remarkable series of seminal works (The Elementary Structures of Kinship (1949), Tristes tropiques (1955), Structural Anthropology (1961), Mythologiques (1964), The Raw and the Cooked (1964), and The Savage Mind (1966). LEvi-Strauss, coming last chronologically in this journal, also has the last word. In response to a question about the surrealist AndrE Breton, LEvi-Strauss replied: I knew AndrE BrEton well - we were very close for a period of time; but I won't go as far as him. I wouldn't say that it holds [secrets] - but it is perhaps one of the signs that secrets exist which we don't understand, and I feel impelled to say, that we will doubtless never understand. It is precisely this lack of understanding which motivates historians: with just a little more evidence, we hope, perhaps we will understand the world a little better. And perhaps, then, the papers in this issue will take us a little closer to understanding astrology's appeal, claims, role, nature, function, ideology, world-view and cultural significance.

This book expounds in a colourful way the diverse literaryimages that Banaras, the city known as the Cultural Capital ofIndia and the holiest city for Hindus, has inspired and continuesto inspire in different writers in the course of history. Fewother cities in the world have so sparked the imagination ofthe artists as this paradoxical and undescribable city whichseems to integrate all contradictions.Kabir, Tulasi Das, Mirza Ghalib, Bhartendu Harishchandra,Rudra Kashikeya, Bishma Sahni, Raja Rao, Shivprasad Singh,Abdul Bismillah, Kashinath Singh and Pankhaj Mishra, allwrote about the Banaras of their time or of the past. Rana P.B.Singh, an undisputed authority on the city of Banaras, analysestheir literary images and the cultural traditions describedtherein, interpreting them in the purview of cultural symbolsand lived traditions which have maintained their continuitysince the ancient past.
