Abstract

<title> SUMMARY </title>This paper aims to study the philosophical thought of the Portuguese astronomer and millenarian Manuel Bocarro Frances (alias Jacob Rosales), taking him as an exemplary case of the 'scienziato', which was taking shape in seventeenth-century Europe. Of Portuguese crypto-Jewish origin, Bocarro-Rosales travelled around Europe, cultivating scientific relationships with celebrated philosophers, physicians, and mathematicians, writing on cosmology, but he was to become better known as a prophetic author. The paper argues that, far from being independent and self-sufficient outlooks, these are complementary aspects, which one has to take into account in order to have a global understanding of Bocarro-Rosales's thought. Just as other men of science of his time, Bocarro-Rosales turned his prophetic aspirations to a way of understanding nature, history, and divine intervention, intimately related to the late-Renaissance philosophical debate. Closely attached to Renaissance philosophical eclecticism, his scientific and messianic thought was influenced by the late-Renaissance revival of philosophical doctrines as Neo-Platonism and Stoicism.
