O knihe

The names of the days of the week have various sources in various languages; the most widespread are religious and numeric. In many cases the names have been changed for religious or secular reasons. The order of the week days can be derived 'geometrically' from an acute heptagram, the star polygon. The luminaries are arranged in the same Ptolemaic/Stoic order around the points of the heptagram. Tracing the unicursal line from one planet to the next gives the order of the weekdays. According to some sources, the weekday heptagram is considerably old. It was with the adoption and widespread use of the seven-day week throughout the Hellenistic world of mixed cultures that this heptagram was created.
