Chapter Summary

This index section presents list of names that occur in this book Reading the Book of Nature in the Dutch Golden Age, 15751715. This book challenges the traditional picture. First, it shows how nature was regarded as a second book of God, next to the Bible. For many, contemplating, investigating, representing and collecting natural objects was a religious activity. Secondly, the book demonstrates that the deconstruction of the old view of nature was partly caused by the pioneering exegetical research conducted in the Dutch Republic, more specifically, the emergence of radical biblical criticism.

Keywords: Book of Nature; Dutch Golden Age; radical biblical criticism
