Erhard Weigel was Professor of Mathematics at Jena University
between 1653 and 1699. He has got a place in the history of science
thanks to his mathematical and astronomical knowledge, which he was able to
demonstrate also in popular forms, his numerous inventions,
his pedagogical enterprises, as well as his engagement for the
Gregorian reform of the calender in the protestantic states, connected
with the foundation of a scientific academy.
This volumes contains a review article, followed by seven contributions with latest results of investigations about Weigel, presented at a colloquium held in Jena on the occasion of the 300th anniversary of his death.
All texts are in German.
