Newton, Isaac (1643-1727)


Isaac Newton is arguably the most influential scientist of all time. The calculus and physics he developed is taught today in high school and college classes everywhere. However, Newton wrote more about religion than he did about mathematics and physics. The full extent of his religious writings and thought has only become evident recently, as material that was long held in private collections is becoming widely available.
