Pythagoras and the Pythagoreans

Description

Although stories about Pythagoras abounded in the ancient world, little about him is known for certain. He was born around 470 BCE on Samos, travelled widely, founded a scholarly community at Croton in Southern Italy, and died around 495 BCE. He was interested in mathematics, astronomy, philosophy, and music, and probably believed in reincarnation. The community he founded was known for trying to live in a way that kept body and soul pure.
