On August 19, 1662, the French scientist and Christian thinker Blaise Pascal died. He passed away at the age of only 39, after years of health difficulties. It is not known exactly what disease led to his death, and there is a possibility that it was a combination of several simultaneous health problems. Despite his early death, Pascal made great contributions in the field of human knowledge, in a number of different intellectual fields. Namely, he was engaged in mathematics, physics and various other natural sciences, and in addition he was an inventor and a Christian thinker.

Pascal died in Paris during the reign of French King Louis XIV, also known as the King of the Sun. Louis XIV he was only 25 years old at the time of Pascal’s death, and began to rule independently only the previous year, after the death of his then-first minister, Cardinal Mazarin. Pascal is buried in the late Parisian church of Saint-Étienne-du-Mont, located near the Sorbonne and next to the Parisian Panthéon (built in the century after Pascal’s death as the church of St. Genoveva).
