Catalog of the Scientific Community
in the 16th and 17th Centuries

This catalog is a collection of 631 detailed biographies on members of the scientific community during the 16th and 17th centuries with vital facts about each individual and their contributions to science.

The information here was compiled by the late Richard S. Westfall, Professor in the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at Indiana University. While the scope of Dr. Westfall's research is immense, the information is concise and very well organized. All individuals in the catalog are systematically described by ten categories using twenty searchable fields.

Short Form: Search 9 of the 20 fields in the database.

Long Form: Search all 20 fields in the database.
