The "wretched wee heasties" cavorting innocently under his lens were later indicted and convicted hy Koch and Pasteur. Unbeknown to Leeuwenhoek, he had discovered a vicious and unseen world of killers, now known as bacteria, or (jerrns. The span of time between Leeuwenhoek and Pasteur was almost 200 years.
