Abstract [en]

In the early modern period (during the Renaissance/Baroque eras) the comparison of the astronomer and his work to a Hercules or a Herculean Effort was not unusual. The learned and intellectual Hercules was described as an ideal and put forward as exemplary. This paper explores how the comparison was presented in text and image.
