  2. 2.  In geology, one of the areas in which he worked, he set out three basic principles of stratigraphy: 1. principle of original horizontality - the layers of sediment are originally deposited horizontally. The stratum, at its formation, is horizontal and parallel to the deposition surface. 2. Superposition of layers – Sedimentary layers are deposited in a time sequence, with the oldest on the bottom and the youngest on the top. 3. Principle of lateral continuity - a layer always has the same age throughout its length.  A scientist also distinguished in Anatomy, Paleontology and Geology.  Also a clergyman, beatified in October 1988.
