Abstract
U diplomskom radu opisani su različiti modeli svemira koji su se pojavljivali u prošlosti. Početak interesa za prirodne pojave uz opis mitoloških slika svijeta drevnih civilizacija (egipatske, babilonske i majanske) prikazan je u prvom dijelu rada. Zatim su opisani i prokomentirani modeli svemira starogrčkih kao i srednjovjekovnih mislilaca sve do klasičnih djela znanstvenika poput Isaaca Newtona i Williama Herschela. Opisane su i brojne ideje poput one o beskonačnosti svemira, razmatranja o veličini i strukturi nebeskih objekata kao i o udaljenostima među njima. Moderne metode proučavanja nebeskih pojava i današnje znanje o strukturi svemira prikazane su u završnom dijelu rada.

The beginning of interest in natural phenomena and mythological pictures of the world of ancient civilizations such as egyptian, babylonian and mayan are described in the first part of thesis. Furthermore, the ancient greek and medieval universe models up to classical approach of some great scientists such as Isaac Newton and William Herschel are described and commented. Many ideas and hypothesis like infinite universe, considerations about size and structure of heavenly bodies and distances between them are also shown and commented. Modern methods of studying of heavenly bodies and today's knowledge about the structure of Solar system and Universe itself are described in final part of this thesis.
