There is a link below to a delightfully interesting article about Carolinus Linnaeus. I visited Linnaeus' garden in Uppsala (desribed in the article) in the summer of 1986 while doing work on medieval manuscripts at the University of Uppsala. The gardens are truly lovely as well as historically interesting. I also visited the tomb of Linnaeus in the Uppsala Cathedral. Also, that other fascinating scientist and mystic, Immanuel Swedenborg, is buried in a place of honor there.
