Abstract:

Preface -- Part I Biography -- Childhood and youth in Copenhagen -- Years of discovery in Holland -- In Paris and France -- The first year in Italy -- Researcher and Convert in Italy -- The Geological Dissertation -- The great travel -- Under Cosimo III in Florence -- Two years in Copenhagen -- Educator and Priest in Florence -- Part II Scientific Papers -- Anatomical Papers -- Geological Papers.

This is by far the most exhaustive biography on Niels Stensen, anatomist, geologist and bishop, better known as "Nicolaus Steno". We learn about the scientists family and background in Lutheran Denmark, of his teachers at home and abroad, of his studies and travels in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Italy, Austria, Hungary, Bohemia and Germany, of his many pioneering achievements in anatomy and geology, of his encounters with Swammerdam, Malpighi and with members of the newly established Royal Society of London and the Accademia del Cimento in Florence, and with the philosopher Spinoza. It further treats Stensens religious conversion. The book includes the full set of Steno's anatomical and geological scientific papers in original language. The editors thoroughly translated the original Latin text to English, and included numerous footnotes on the background of this bibliographic and scientific treasure from the 17th century.
