Roger Bacon

Bacon, Roger (c.1214–92), English Franciscan and scholastic philosopher renowned for his interest in science and his observation of natural phenomena. He is sometimes credited with many precocious discoveries (of the microscope, for example), but there is great doubt about the truth of these claims.
