Almagstum novum was one of the earliest published books on astronomy. Riccioli gave names to craters and mountains on the moon. Most of the names are still in use. A competent astronomer and Jesuit priest, Riccoli published his massive New Almagest, a work that treated the efforts of both Copernicus and Kepler but which sought to show that the earth does not move.
