Nuremberg was the centre of astronomical craft in the 16th century, Regiomontanus explained why he decided to settle there: “not only on account of the availability of instruments, particularly the astronomical instruments on which the entire science of the heavens is based, but also on account of the very great ease of all sorts of communication with learned men living everywhere, since this place is regarded as the centre of Europe because of the journeys of the merchants.” mhs oxford
