Portrait bust to the right inside oval by Blaise Pascal (1623-1662). At the bottom to his name and 6-line poem in French. Pascal was a French mathematician and physicist, Christian philosopher, theologian and apologist. Pascal was a Catholic who also had a profound influence on Protestantism. Pascal laid the foundation for probability theory; the basis for the integral doctrine and gave meaning to the concept of infinity. He built one of the first mechanical calculators (addition and subtraction) (1642), the pascaline. He discovered Pascal's Law, named after him: The pressure exerted on a liquid propagates with the same magnitude in all directions. As a Christian thinker, Pascal is mainly seen as the apologist of revelation. He insists that reason must know its own limits and that it must bow to the reality given by God. Etching and engraving, maker unknown. Made around 1730.
