Abstract:

Benito Arias Montano (c. 1525-1598) early modern Spain's premier Christian Hebraist was an eloquent and influential advocate of natural philosophical reform, yet the works in which he discussed these ideas - his self-described magnum opus - have rarely been studied from the perspective of the history of science. This text identifies him as part of a community of natural philosophers and biblical scholars who shared in the Spanish disquiet, a preoccupation about the ability and validity of prevailing natural philosophical approaches to explain the natural world.
