Murphysboro Centuries, 13th sacred

Robert Grosseteste, 1175-1253
- bishop of Lincoln and chancellor of the University of Oxford - although he was mainly a translator of works he was also the teacher of Roger Bacon and the “inventor” of the “scientific method” which Bacon made famous - “The first wave theory of light has been credited to him, and he has been called ‘the original architect of the Gregorian calendar of 1582.’ His experiments with lenses contributed to the development of the first spectacles.”
