The quarter-century period starting in the mid-1950s is sometimes referred to as ‘the renaissance of general relativity and cosmology’. Many contributed to this activity, but in the UK a major factor was the guidance and leadership provided by the warmly enthusiastic personality of Dennis Sciama, whose broad knowledge and deep insights greatly inspired many in their individual achievements.
