Hermans (or Hermann), Jean


Hermans (or Hermann), Jean
(ca. 1595-1674)
   Jean Hermans was born probably in Brussels. He purchased a house on Drap-straat (later rue de la Violette) where he laid out a botanical garden and perhaps a greenhouse. Hermans cultivated many rare plants, some for medicinal uses and some solely for botanical research. During his lifetime he won fame as a botanist and an apothecary, and physicians throughout Brussels relied on his expertise. In 1652, he published a catalog of plants. Hermans died in Brussels in the second half of October 1674.
