He first entered the University of Oxford and afterward that of Paris, where he received the degree of Doctor of Theology. About 1250 he returned to England, entered the order of Franciscans, and made researches in physics, which led his ecclesiastical superiors to charge him with practicing "black art," or magic. He was sent to Paris and kept in confinement for ten years. Having been set at liberty, he was again thrown into prison (1278), where he remained for at least ten years. His most important work is his Opus Majus, in which he discusses the relation of philosophy to religion, and then treats of language, metaphysics, optics and experimental science. He was well versed in geography and astronomy and invented the magnifying glass.

Jump to: navigation search BACON, Roger , an English monk, who, by the power of his genius , raised himself above his time, made astonishing discoveries in several sciences, and contributed much to the extension of real knowledge. He was born in 1214, near Ilchester, in the county of Somerset, of an old and respectable family. Following the impulse of an inquisitive spirit, he overcame all the obstacles opposed to his progress by ignorance and superstition . He first entered the university of Oxford , and went afterwards to that of Paris , then much frequented, where he distinguished himself much by successful study, and received the degree of doctor of theology . In 1240, he returned to England , where he entered the order of Franciscans , and fixed his abode at Oxford. Natural philosophy seems then to have been the chief object of his labors ; but this study required expenditures beyond his means. He met, however, with generous

English philosopher and experimenter renowned in his own day for his great knowledge of science and remembered today for allegedly prophesying many of the inventions of later centuries: aircraft, telescopes, steam engines, microscopes, and so on. In fact he was a wealthy lecturer in the schools of Oxford and Paris with a passion for alchemical (see alchemy ) and other experiments, whose later life was overshadowed by disputes with the Franciscan Order, of which he had become a member in 1257. His principal writings were the Opus Majus Opus Minor , and Opus Tertium
Bacon described the preparation of black powder sometime in the late 1240s. He also wrote in his Epistola Fratris Rog. Baconis, de secretis operibus artis et naturae et nullitate magiae (Epistle of Roger Bacon on the Secret Works of Art and of Nature and Also on the Nullity of Magic) about devices that sound like rockets: We can, with saltpeter and other substances, compose artificially a fire that can be launched over long distances... By only using a very small quantity of this material much light can be created accompanied by a horrible fracas. It is possible with it to destroy a town or an army ... In order to produce this artificial lightning and thunder it is necessary to take saltpeter, sulfur, and Luru Vopo Vir Can Utriet.

Roger Bacon
Philosopher , surnamed D OCTOR M IRABILIS , b. at Ilchester, Somersetshire, about 1214; d. at Oxford , perhaps 11 June, 1294. His wealthy parents sided with Henry III against the rebellious barons, but lost nearly all their property . It has been presumed that Robert Bacon , O.P., was Roger's brother; more probably he was his uncle. Roger made his higher studies at Oxford and Paris , and was later professor at Oxford (Franciscan school ). He was greatly influenced by his Oxonian masters and friends Richard Fitzacre and Edmund Rich , but especially by Robert Grosseteste and Adam Marsh , both professors at the Franciscan school , and at Paris by the Franciscan Petrus Peregrinus de Maricourt (see Schlund in "Archiv. Francisc Histor. ", IV, 1911, pp. 436 sqq.) They created in him a predilection for positive sciences , languages, and physics ; and to the last-mentioned he owed his entrance about 1240 (1251? 1257?) into the Franciscans , either at Oxford or Paris . He continued his learned work; illness, however, compelled him to give it up for two years. When he was able to recommence his studies, his superiors imposed other

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search For the Nova Scotia premier, see Roger Stuart Bacon Statue of Roger Bacon in the Oxford University Museum Roger Bacon O.F.M. (c. 1214–1294), also known as Doctor Mirabilis Latin : "wonderful teacher"), was an English philosopher and Franciscan friar who placed considerable emphasis on empirical methods. He is sometimes credited as one of the earliest European advocates of the modern scientific method inspired by the works of Plato and Aristotle Roger Bacon was born in Ilchester in Somerset , possibly in 1213 or 1214 at the Ilchester Friary The only source for his date of birth is his statement in the Opus Tertium , written in 1267, that "forty years have passed since I first learned the alphabet". The 1214 birth date assumes he was not being literal, and may have meant 40 years had passed since he matriculated at Oxford at the age of 13. If he had been literal, his birth date was more likely to have been around 1220/1222. In the same passage he reports that for all but two of those forty years he had always been engaged in study. His family appears to have been well-off, but, during the stormy reign of

Se piensa que Bacon nació cerca de Ilchester en Somerset, aunque según algunos fue en Bilsey, Gloucester. La fecha de nacimiento es igualmente incierta. La única fuente es su afirmación en el Opus Tertium, escrito en 1267, que "cuarenta años han pasado desde que aprendí el alfabeto". La fecha de 1214 asume que significa que 40 años han pasado desde que se matriculó en Oxford a la edad de 13. Si no quería decir eso, la fecha de nacimiento sería más probable alrededor de 1220. Parece que la familia de Bacon era acomodada, pero durante el tormentoso reinado de

Roger Bacon - Tract on the Tincture and Oil of Antimony
On the true and right Preparation of Stibium / to heal human weaknesses and illnesses therewith, and to improve the imperfect metals.
Translated by Kjell Hellesoe 1985.
From Friedrich Roth-Scholtz, Deutsches theatrum chemicum , Nürnberg: Adam Jonathan Felsecker, 1731.
Preface Dear reader, at the end of his Tract on Vitriol, Roger Bacon mentions that because of the multiplication of the Tincture that is made from Vitriol, the lover of Art should acquaint himself with the Tract De Oleo Stibii. Therefore I considered that it would be good and useful that the Tract De Oleo Stibii follows next. And if one thoroughly ponders and compares these tinctures with one another, then I have no doubt that one will not finish without exceptional profit. Yet, every lover of Art, should mind always to keep one eye on Nature and the other on Art and manual labour. For, when these two do not stand together, then it is a lame work, as when someone thinks he can walk a long path on one leg only, which is easily seen to be impossible,

First published Thu Apr 19, 2007 Opus maius and the related works Opus minus and Opus tertium. He set out his own new model for a system of philosophical studies that would incorporate language studies and science studies then unavailable at the Universities. He succeeded in setting out a model of an experimental science on the basis of his study of Optics ( Perspectiva ). He does this in a new context: the application of linguistic and scientific knowledge for a better understanding of Theology and in the service of the Res publica Christiana Secretum secretorum , a Latin translation of the Arabic text on the education of the Prince, the . He believed it to be a work by Aristotle for Alexander the Great. He died at Oxford ca. 1292.

    1. Modern Research on Roger Bacon
    Modern understanding of the Philosophy of Roger Bacon is largely conditioned by two distinct traditions of interpretation from the nineteenth century. The first is the study of the physical, metaphysical, and related works of Bacon. Discovered in 1848 by Victor Cousin in Amiens MS 406, these works were edited by Robert Steele and Ferdinand Delorme (OHI, 1905-1940) . With the exception, however, of the teaching on the soul, some aspects of Bacon's theory of matter and form, the doctrine of

The Mirror of Alchemy
This has been ascribed to Roger Bacon [1214?-1294]. This English text was issued in The mirror of alchimy, composed by the thrice-famous and learned fryer, Roger Bachon. Also a most excellent and learned discourse of the admirable force and efficacie of Art and Nature, written by the same Author. With certain other worthie treatises of the like argument. London, 1597.
The Mirror of Alchemy, composed by the famous Friar, Roger Bacon, sometime fellow of Martin College and Brasen-nase College in Oxenforde.
Of the Definitions of Alchemy.
In many ancient Books there are found many definitions of this Art, the intentions whereof we must consider in this Chapter. For Hermes said of this Science: Alchemy is a Corporal Science simply composed of one and by one, naturally conjoining things more precious, by knowledge and effect, and converting them by a natural commixtion into a better kind. A certain other said: Alchemy is a Science, teaching how to transform any kind of metal into another: and that by a proper medicine, as it appeared by many Philosophers' Books. Alchemy therefore is a science teaching how to make and compound a certain medicine, which is called Elixir, the which when it is cast upon metals or imperfect bodies, does fully perfect them in the very projection.
