Father Angelo Secchi
|dc.contributor.author||Rigge, William F., S.J.|
|dc.description.abstract||First Paragraph: | A century ago, on June 29,1818, there was born at Reggio in AEmilia, Italy, a child that was destined to become one of the greatest astronomers of his age. He was to open up new avenues of research and to be the founder of important branches of science. In his person religion and science were happily blended. Both as a Jesuit and as an astronomer, his character has ever been undimmed and unimpeached. It is a pleasure, then, and a privilege to write his eulogy, and to narrate his achievements.||en_US|
