Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Nikephoros Gregoras, latinized as Nicephorus Gregoras (c. 1295-1360), Byzantine astronomer, historian, man of learning and religious controversialist, was born at Heraclea Pontica. At an early age he settled at Constantinople, where his reputation for learning brought him under the notice of Andronicus II Palaeologus, by whom he was appointed chartophylax (keeper of the archives). In 1326 Gregoras proposed (in a still extant treatise) certain reforms in the calendar, which the emperor refused to carry out for fear of disturbances; nearly two hundred years later they were introduced by Gregory XIII on almost the same lines.
