On November 4, 1915, Albert Einstein presented at the Prussian Academy of Sciences the first of four lectures about a covariant formulation of his proposal to modify the Newtonian physics of the universal gravitation. Since then, General Relativity has become the paradigm of any new theory of gravitation.
