Maria Gaetana Agnesi was a brilliant 18th century mathematician, philosopher, and theologian. She was a known prodigy and fluent in seven languages by her eleventh birthday. The first woman to write a mathematics handbook, she was also the first female mathematics professor at a university. Her work Instituzioni analitiche discussed a curve that has since been known as The Witch of Agnesi in her honor. Often a substitute for the bell curve, the Witch of Agnesi finds its place in all aspects of life, including the fermentation and fractional distillation of Maria Agnesi’s namesake brandy.
