A Very Special Couple: Emma and Charles Darwin

Just when you thought that everything conceivable has been written about Charles Darwin on his bicentennial, a revealing perspective on his wife, Emma, appeared in the journal International Microbiology. Written by the distinguished science writer Mercé Piqueras, the article sheds light on many aspects of the relationship between Charles and Emma, including their correspondence while he was traveling on the Beagle. Of particular interest is the clash between her theistic beliefs and his agnosticism. They both learned to live with it.
