In the 17th and 18th Centuries, a number of beautiful sky atlases were produced in Europe that showed the constellations as allegorical representations of classical Greek heroes, heroines, and monsters. But these constellation images also had a scientific purpose, in that they were placed in coordinate systems of celestial latitude and longitude that allowed the star to be mapped in the sky. In addition, many of these atlases depicted diagrams of the solar system that reflected both contemporary and ancient cosmological systems, thus tracing the development of our view the heavens over time.
