Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Hieronymus Bock (Latinised Tragus) (1498 - February 21, 1554) was a German botanist, physician, and Lutheran minister who began the transition from medieval botany to the modern scientific worldview by arranging plants by their relation or resemblance. The details of his life are sketchy, in particular his educational background is unknown. In 1519 he inscribed at the university of Heidelberg. He married an Eva Victor in 1523, and was schoolteacher and caretaker of the grounds of the count palatine in Zweibr cken for nine years. In 1532 he became the prince's physician and later received a life-time position as a Lutheran minister in a nearby town (Hornbach) where he stayed up to his death in 1554.show more
