Knowledge (scientia)

SG Knowledge

In the second window, we see Knowledge represented by St. Luke the Evangelist and by Copernicus. The apostle Paul refers to Luke as "the beloved physician" (Col. 4:14), and throughout Christian history, he is understood to have been a man of great scholarship and discernment. The author of both the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles, he is also the earliest historian of the Christian Church. Nicolaus Copernicus (1473-1543) was the great Polish mathematician and astronomer responsible for the earliest heliocentric understanding of the universe.
