Sachs von Löwenheim Philipp Jakob

The German natural scientist, botanist and doctor of medicine Philipp Jakob Sachs von Löwenheim (1627-1672) studied in Leipzig until he received his master's degree. Afterwards he visited the most famous universities and doctors in the Netherlands, France and Italy and received his doctorate in Padua in 1651 as Dr. med. In 1658 he was admitted to the German Academy of Natural Scientists "Academia Naturae Curiosum". In order to meet the requirements of the statutes, he wrote a scientific paper and selected a 670-page treatise on the vine. The work, published in 1661, he called "Ampelographia" and thus established this term about the study of the vine, which, however, only became established 150 years later.
