Abstract

The Simon Marius Anniversary 2014 was aimed at giving the Franconian astronomer proper credit and promoting him and his work within the region and to the worldwide history of astronomy community. An integral project was the creation of a web portal as a twenty-first-century representation of Simon Marius. All his original works, secondary literature, international reporting, and websites about him are collected on www.simon-marius.net, which enjoys international regard. Work on the portal is in progress under the authority of the Simon Marius Society, newly founded in 2014.
