Fratris Rogeri Bacon, Ordinis Minorum, Opus majus ad Clementem Quartum, Pontificem Romanum
76. Doctor Mirabilis
Bacon was an early proponent of experimental science and expounded on many subjects in a manner that seems quite modern. This work was produced after he informed Pope Clement IV of his ideas and in it he urged the pope of the importance of carrying out Bacon's scientific reforms.
