    Continuing on the Zacuto thread.   He wrote Tratado breve en las ynfluencias del cielo (Concise treatise on the celestial influences) in 1486.  He considered astrology a "natural complement of medicine."   

    It was organized in five parts, and was written "para con este mas se ayudasen los medicos de su senoria sy fueren astrologos" (to better assist the physicians of your lordship if they are astrologers).  The "lordship" being Dom Juan de Zuniga Piemental, who commissioned it.
