There is not even ONE word in praise of intelligence in the whole bible, let alone about scientists and doctors! Science was an outcast in Christendom up until late 1800's. Doctors were considered witches or Satan's agents, since bible says people were not sick by diseases but possessed by demons. Lest we forget, even Jesus' principal profession on earth was to perform exorcism to outcast "deaf and dumb" demons from the sick and transfer them to innocent animals!
Definately doctors, tho medicine was very primitive compared to today. Doctors were not held in high esteem in those days. Often the opisite and there wernt medical schools and hospitals. Medicine was learned by apprenticeship and practiced in peoples homes. The apostle Luke wasva doctor. Science was so primitive as to be non-existant. The best they had were philosophers like Socrates and Plato and Pythagorous, etc. and intelligent, curious rich men like Pliny the Elder and his son Pliny the Younger who together wrote extensive works on nature, history, mathematics, society, politics, rhetoric, etc. because they actually had the leisure time to pursue such things and the education to write it down and the money to be able to afford papyrus and vellum scrolls and decent ink for writing.
