Biographical Information: Benjamin Bramer (1588-1652) was born in Germany near the end of the sixteenth century. Not long after his birth, BramerÕs father, a minister, passed away and Bramer was sent to live with his sister and her husband, Joost BŸrgi, a mathematician and instrument maker who was the court clockmaker in Kassel. BŸrgi served as BramerÕs only source of education, tutoring him in many subjects including mathematics. He took Bramer, at the age of sixteen, to Prague, where Bramer remained for roughly five years. Though he had an interest in mathematics, Bramer was also fascinated by architecture. He combined the two disciplines and spent a majority of his career as a director of constructions of fortifications and castles within Hesse-Kassel, just north of Bavaria. By the time Bramer was twenty-four, he was appointed master builder in Marburg by Landgrave Moritz, and over the next twenty years built fortifications in Marburg (1629), Rheinfels (1625), Kassel (1634), and in 1635 was appointed the master builder of Ziegenhain fortress. Though he did not belong to any scientific societies, Bramer did publish works on the calculation of sines and also on the question of the vacuum. When not engaged in construction, Bramer followed the examples of men like Alberti (1435), DŸrer (1525) and his foster-father/brother-in-law BŸrgi (1604) by building devices that enabled one to draw accurate geometric perspectives as well as curves.

Benjamin Bramer was fostered by his sister and her husband after the death of his father. tutored Bramer in mathematics and Bramer became interested in combining mathematics with architecture. He went with to Prague when he was 16 years old and remained there for about five years. Bramer directed constructions of fortifications and castles within the district of Hesse-Kassel north of Bavaria. He was appointed master builder to the court in Marburg in 1612.

He also directed the construction of a fortress at Rheinfels (1625) and fortifications in Kassel (1630-1634). In 1635 Bramer was appointed master builder of the fortress of Ziegenhain. His first publication was on the calculation of sines. He also published on the vacuum, holding similar views to Galileo . He followed Alberti (1525) and (1604) when in 1630 he constructed a device that enabled one to draw accurate geometric perspective. The instrument had been described in a 1617 publication. Bramer designed several other mathematical instruments.

    For the core data on which the following table is based, I am indebted to Virginia Cameron, the Village Historian of Fabius, (P.O. Box #117, Fabius, NY, 13063, 315-683-9446), and to Sandra K. Walling . Virginia compiled the original list, and Sandra thoughtfully made a copy available to me. Sandra and I have made (and are still working on) several additions and corrections. Virginia's data is in black font, while our additions/corrections are presented in a light gray color and enclosed in square brackets. Sandra's information has been taken from the AGO muster rolls on My material has come mostly from the AGO muster rolls on a CD that is part of Sierra's Generations Family Tree, version 5.2. I have attempted to identify and appropriately credit data not from either of these two sources.

    Scientists of the Christian Faith: From the Era of Galileo The Galileo Project is a hypertext source of information on the life and work of Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) and the science of his time. The project, whose homepage is here: , is supported by the Office of the Vice President of Computing of Rice University. The initial stages were made possible by a grant from the Council on Library Resources to Fondren Library. Contributors to the Project are noted here: Albert Van Helden, Lynette Autrey Professor of History at Rice University, is responsible for the written text in the Project (except where otherwise noted). The Project features a Catalog of the Scientific Community of the 16th and 17th Centuries at This is a searchable database of detailed histories of over 600 individuals who made significant contributions to Western science. These histories have been compiled by Richard S. Westfall, Department of History and Philosophy of Science at Indiana University. From this I’ve compiled a list of 522 Galileo-era scientists known to be Christians, with links to biographies from the Galileo Project.
