THE FRANCIS BACON SOCIETY INCORPORATED
Francis Bacon (1561-1626) "took all knowledge to be his province." An equal breadth of interest has characterised the Francis Bacon Society, a unique literary association with more than a century's experience of interdisciplinary Renaissance studies. Bacon was a many-sided genius who has influenced scientists, poets and statesmen, has been studied from orthodox and unorthodox perspectives, and has attracted widely diverging interpretations.
The Society is best known for its championing of the Shakespere authorship question, and this remains of great interest. However, its expertise encompasses Elizabethan history, philosophy, cryptography and much else. Above all, Bacon's philosophy and the Shakespeare plays have provided inspiration for imaginative yet scholarly research, and the ongoing vitality of the Society testifies to the fruitfulness of this approach.
