5 Researcher and Convert in Italy 1667

  • Troels Kardel
  • Paul Maquet


The year 1667 was full of tension for Stensen. Major anatomical and geological problems incessantly drove him to investigations and experiments. Often we find him on journeys to Lucca, Livorno and Rome. In the most bristling correspondence with erudite friends, he experienced the final break-up of the Accademia del Cimento. In addition he lived through a difficult conflict between his old and his new faith, an unwavering study of the Catholic religion and finally the last difficult struggle for his conversion.
