Webinar Noël Golvers: Johann Schreck Terrentius, SJ: Jesuit polymath (1576-1630)

A thorough analysis of the sinuous ‘peregrinatio academica’ of Johann Terrentius Schreck (1576-1630) between 1600-1618 through and his rich correspondence displays a widespread network of contacts, covering a broad range of domains, from medicine to alchemy, pharmacy, botany, and through engineering to (pure and applied) mathematics, and calendar making.

Specific focus will be on Terrentius (and Trigault) in Antwerp (meetings with a.o. Rubens and many scholars) and their purchses in the Officina Plantiniana.
