Author(s): 
Frank J. Swetz (Pennsylvania State University)

Johannes Schöner (1477-1547), also known as “Mathematicus,” was a German scientific polymath. His portrait was drawn by the humanist Jean-Jacques Boissard (1528-1602) and included in Bibliotheca chaleographia 1652-1669 (1669).

                                               

Schöner’s most important mathematical work was Algorithmus demonstratus, published in 1534.
