Following the title of Johannes Bosscha’s essay (1907): “Simon Marius. Réhabilitation d’un astronome calomnié,” the word “rehabilitation” is often used in studies about the astronomer Simon Marius (1573–1624). Having studied the original essays by Bosscha and his colleague Jean Oudemans and having examined the file with correspondence and calculations surrounding the original prize question that became the occasion for their essays, we want to make some general comments about this aspect of Marius studies.
