## Pythagoras

**Pythagoras of Samos** (c. 570 - c. 495 BC) was an Ionian Greek philosopher and founder of the religious
movement called Pythagoreanism. Most of our information about Pythagoras was written down centuries after he
lived, thus very little reliable information is known about him. He was born on the island of Samos, and may have
travelled widely in his youth, visiting Egypt and other places seeking knowledge. ... Pythagoras made influential
contributions to philosophy and religious teaching in the late 6th century BC. He is often revered as a great
mathematician, mystic and scientist, and he is best known for the Pythagorean theorem which bears his name.
