(Fr.) Gregor Mendel


Was Gregor Mendel an ordianed priest? What was the church’s view of him? Thanks! :slight_smile:


Yes, he was an ordained priest of the Augustinian order. He became abbot of his monastery. Here is a link to learn more about him.



Be aware that this article was written about 1911, genetics has moved on since then. The biographical details of Mendel are correct.
