The Gardener of God 2013

The Gardener of God 2013

The film shows the life and work of Gregor Mendel, the father of modern genetics, from the perspective of a scientific monk, a man of prayer, faith and science.

The decoration is from the Austro-Hungarian Empire of the 19th century. We see Mendel's struggle to change the fiscal policies applied to the monasteries of his country, as well as his struggles to change people's opinion of his great discovery. Mendel will wonder if it is possible to reconcile faith and science, and if the discovery of him will be useful for humanity or dangerous, since it could be used for eugenic purposes. In that sense, his benefactress and friend, Princess Hanna von Limburg, will be of great help. Mendel finally publishes his findings and heads to the Vatican to meet with the Pope, who welcomes his works.
