Johnson, Francis R. Marlowe's Astronomy and Renaissance Skepticism.ELH , Vol. 13, No. 4 (Dec., 1946), pp. 241-254

This article dealt with the way that astronomy is portrayed in Dr. Faustus and how that compares to conventional ideas of astrology/astronomy of the time. It begins talking about what Marlowe himself would have been exposed to, and goes on to discuss the ways he differed from Ptolemy in his ideas. Then it talks about the ideas of Ricius and Fine, whom Marlowe would have gotten a lot of his ideas pertaining to the universe from.
