English term or phrase: accomplished practicing scientists
For the last fifty years, virtually all historians of science — including A. C. Crombie, David Lindberg, Edward Grant, Stanley Jaki, Thomas Goldstein, and J. L. Heilbron — have concluded that the Scientific Revolution was indebted to the Church. The Catholic contribution to science went well beyond ideas — including theological ideas—to accomplished practicing scientists, many of whom were priests. For example, Father Nicholas Steno, a Lutheran convert who became a Catholic priest, is often identified as the father of geology.

savanţi desăvârşiţi practicanţi


Explanation:
Am totuşi o reţinere în privinţa lui "practicanţi". În româneşte mi se pare că e prea sec; l-aş dezvolta puţin pentru a-i clarifica sensul în context (poate "practicanţi ai catolicismului").

Notes to answerer
Asker: Mulțumesc, părerea mea e că nu se referă la catolicism acel ”practicing”. Abia apoi urmează precizarea ca mulți dintre ei (nu toți) erau de confesiune catolică. Nu știu cum s-ar spune la noi în loc de ”practicant” că parcă e o ușoară calchiere.

savanti, practicanti desavarsiti (ai catolicismului)


Explanation:
Adaugi sau nu "ai catolicismului".
Ordinea cuvintelor este, de asemenea, importanta.
