Dear Sabrina,

If this clock dates from the Medieaval period, it must have been created before Copernicus published his monumental book, 'de Revolutionebus Orbeum Coelestium,' in 1543. It is as astrological as astonomical then. To be safe from the Inquisitors, Copernicus, working in Poland, far from the Inquisitors in Rome, dedicated the book to the Pope, and waited until his death bed to release the book. The photograph of the clock is wonderful, and the angle quite unique and artistic.
