520    Although many of the practical and intellectual traditions
       that make up modern science date back centuries, the 
       category of "science" itself is a relative novelty. In the
       early eighteenth century, the modern German word that 
       would later mean "science," naturwissenschaft, was not 
       even included in dictionaries. By 1850, however, the term 
       was in use everywhere. Acolytes of Nature follows the 
       emergence of this important new category within German-
       speaking Europe, tracing its rise from an insignificant 
       eighteenth-century neologism to a defining rallying cry of
       modern German culture.
