Chrysorroas). - "Der in der ersten Hälfte des achten Jahrhunderts lebende Johannes von Damaskus gibt in seiner [dreiteiligen] Schrift 'Quelle der Erkenntnis' eine kurze Darstellung der (aristotelischen) Logik und Ontologie, dann eine Bekämpfung der Häresien, endlich eine ausführliche systematische Darstellung der orthodoxen Glaubenslehre. In dem ganzen Werke will Johannes nach einer ausdrücklichen Erklärung nichts Eigenes vorbringen, sondern nur das, was von heiligen und gelehrten Männern gesagt wurde, zusammenfassen und vortragen. Er arbeitet demgemäss nicht selbst an der Fortbildung der Lehre [..], sondern stellt nur die Gedanken seiner Vorgänger ordnend zusammen, wobei ihm die Philosophie und insbesondere die Logik und die Ontologie als Werkzeug der Theologie dient, so dass bereits das scholastische Prinzip bei ihm zur Geltung gelangt. [..] Die Sentenzliteratur der ausgehenden griechischen und lateinischen Patristik [..] bildet den Übergang und den Unterbau zum mittelalterlichen Wissenschaftsbetrieb, zur Autoritätenmethode mit ihrer Doppelaufgabe des Ausgleichs, der Harmonisierung der überlieferten Autoritäten und der [..] Verarbeitung und Systematisierung des tradierten mannigfaltigen Materials mit Hilfe der deduktiven Logik, ihrer Formen, Gesetze und Methoden. In diesem Geiste arbeitete bereits der Mann, der die Brücke von der griechischen Väterzeit zum Mittelalter bildet, der Mönch Johannes Damascenus, der berühmte Kämpfer im Bilderstreit und gegen den Monotheletismus, der klassische Dogmatiker und Systematiker der griechischen Kirche. [..] Was aber seiner Persönlichkeit eine grosse historische Bedeutung verschafft hat, das ist sein Systematisierungstalent und seine Stellung zum Aristotelismus. In seinem Hauptwerk 'Quelle der Erkenntnis' [..] fasst er die gesamte Lehrentwicklung der griechischen Kirche zusammen. [..] Der dritte Teil [..] entwickelt auf der Grundlage von Väterzitaten in systematischer Ordnung und in 4 Büchern das orthodoxe Lehrgebäude, die Lehre von Gott (1. B.), von den Schöpfungswerken (2. B.), von der Menschwerdung (3. B.), von der Verherrlichung des Gottmenschen, von den Sakramenten, von der Heiligenverehrung, von den heiligen Schriften und von den letzten Dingen (4. B.). [..] Die Autorität von Johannes 'Quelle der Erkenntnis' ist im Morgenland [i.e. wohl i.S.v. 'Osten', bzw. in der Orthodoxie] noch heute gross. Aber [..] auch die Scholastiker des Abendlandes haben in der theologischen Doktrin und in der Philosophie unter ihrem Einfluss gestanden [..]." (Ueberweg 2, 11. Aufl. 1928, p. 118 u. 130 f.). - "Den höchsten Ruhm in Bezug auf Formvollendung [der byzantinischen Hymnik] erwarben sich der [..] grosse Dogmatiker Johannes von Damaskus und sein Halbbruder Kosmas der Melode [..]. Johannes wurde bis herab in die neuere Zeit der sogen. 'Oktoechos' zugeschrieben, eine heute noch gebrauchte Sammlung von Kirchengesängen für den sonntäglichen Gottesdienst; doch wird seine Autorschaft neuerlich bestritten. [..] [.. Bei] seinen Zeitgenossen wie bei den späteren Byzantinern wurde er um der Form willen vor den übrigen Meloden bevorzugt und am eifrigsten nachgeahmt." (A. Baumgartner S.J., Geschichte der Weltliteratur, 4, 1900, p. 529; vgl. auch Riemann 1, 12. Aufl. 1959, p. 882). Anzufügen wäre in diesem Zusammenhang, dass Johannes Damascenus zudem als Autor eines heute noch v.a. in der russischen und byzantinischen (orthodoxen) Liturgie gebrauchten Requiem (Panichida) gilt.

Rear hinge solid and unblemished.Hieronymus Froben printed this book in 1548 to carry on his father's work with Erasmus of reprinting the early Greek church fathers' work. Froben was known for both its accuracy and quality and was one of Switzerland's premier printers of the 16th century. This book reprints in Latin and Greek (margins) the theological works of Saint Ivenaeus, a 2nd century Bishop of Gaul during the time of Emperor Marcus Aurelius. Irenaeus was an Ante-Nicean Bishop who attacked the Gnostic heresies of his day through scriptural arguments. His primary theme was the goodness of God (as opposed to the Gnostic view of the creation of the world) and the importance of Jesus in salvation history. This differed in many ways from the more Platonic philosophy of Valentinus and other Gnostic leaders. Additionally, he lays the foundation of apostolic succession through his listing of the bishops of Rome as a counter argument for the fragmented and perhaps less consistent Gnostic traditions.

      s.n. (ma Niccolò Bascarini),, Venezia, 1548 - Volume in 4° antico, legatura posteriore in piena pergamena rigida, sguardie, frontespizio, dedicatoria di Giovanni Fabrini a Cosimo de' Medici, 5 carte non numerate, 324 cc. (648 pp.), comprensive della trattazione sulla interpretazione della lingua volgare e di quella latina, composta dal medesimo. Testo latino in corsivo, chiose che lo circondano in bel romano tondo. Deliziosi capilettera ornati, arricchiscono il testo all'inizio di ognuna delle commedie. È davvero una magnifica edizione questa, corredata dal commento di uno fra i più accreditati studiosi e conoscitori dell'opera di Terenzio oltre che della linguistica. D'una ricchezza incredibile il commento che chiarisce ed illumina la forma latina, la rende nelle più recondite pieghe aggiungendo preziose ed esaustive spiegazioni e chiose. Bella impaginazione a grandi margini, stampato su carta ben nerbata e frusciante, sola cosa da segnalare, la brunitura della carta al margine inferiore, che, più accentuata e più allargata nelle pagine centrali, va via via sbiadendo per lasciare il posto ad una lieve gora, mai affaticante la lettura. Indubbiamente rara, importante prima edizione.

        Libro de la Cosmographia el qual trata la descripción del Mundo, y sus partes, por muy claro y lindo artificio, augmentado por el doctissimo varon Gemma Frisio? agora nuevamente traduzidos en romance castellano

      The first Spanish edition, illustrated with a World map. 1548. Antwerp. Gregorio Bontio. In 4to (204 mm x 148 mm). 1 [blank] + 2 ff. + 68 + 2 ff. [lacking at least three volvelles]. Brown 19th century velvet, blind stamped, clasps missing and rather worn but holding firm. A very clean and fresh copy, one woodcut with a third of the image with white paper glued on top for some reason, folding map with loss to lower margin and some tears, a few foxing spots, else a very good copy in original condition. First Spanish edition, possibly the rarest of all. The first edition was published in Latin in 1524, augmented by Frisio in 1529. A profusely illustrated work; with several woodcuts in text ?two of them world maps of the ?ancient? world-, three volvelles and a folding cordiform world map. The map of the world, first issued in the 1529 edition, was probably designed by Regnier Gemma Frisius (1508 -1555), a mathematician of the court of Charles I of Spain; the map is presented in a cordiform projection, the continents mostly based on the 1541 Mercator´s globe gores and is nicely decorated with mythological figures. This is one of the earliest ?obtainable- maps of the Americas, and constitutes one of the most important as well. North America bears the name ?Baccalearum?. The author, Peter Bienewitz (1495 ? 1552), better known for the Latinized Petrus Apianus, was a German humanist, scientist as might be expected, and an inventor or mathematical instruments; studied in Leipzig from 1516 to 1519, his works swiftly gained the favor of the most important King of Europe, Charles V of Spain.

Our copy of Volume 1 collates the same as the set held by The National Trust Library, see Copac. The later editions are numbered consecutively and have added table as our Volume 2, see Darton & Moule and Herbert. " The Injunction issued by Edward VI in 1547 ordered that a copy of this book should be placed in every church within a year after the date of the visitation which was about to be made. W. Aldis Wright has distinguished no less than six varieties of Volume 1. No doubt, owing to the demand for copies at an early date, several presses were employed at the same time and the work of printing was published as rapidly as possible. Some copies are mixed. There appears to be no such varieties of Volume 2. Owing to the wear and tear of public use, perfect copies are uncommon. Translations were by Nicolas Udall, Catherine Parr, Thomas Key, Miles Coverdale, John Olde, Leonard Coxe, and Mary I of England. The Paraphrase on Revelations, omitted by Erasmus, was the work of Leo Juda, translated by Edmund Alen. Mary I of England in her effort to promote Roman Catholicism ordered all copies of this book to be destroyed—despite having translated Erasmus' commentary on St. John, for which she is praised in this very book".

        Quaestiones naturales, De Anima, Morales: sive Difficilium dubitationum & solutionum Libri IIII. nuncc primùm in lucem editi. Gentiano Herveto Aureliano interprete. Cum gratia & privilegio Imperiali quinquennium.

      Basel, (Iohnnes Oporinus, 1548 - on colophon). 8vo. Contemporary full limp vellum. A bit of soiling and light brownspotting to title-page, otherwise very nice and clean. The printer's name has been removed from the colophon, causing two small holes, which have been neatly repaired from verso. Two small holes corresonding to these to the second-last leaf, causing loss of a couple of letters. All in all a very nice copy. Woodcut initials. (16), 297, (6 - Life of Aristotle) pp.. The scarce first edition of leading French Humanist Catholic Gentian Hervet's important translation of Alexander's hugely influential "Quaestiones", presumably with this fourth part (which is not the "De Fato" as in other Renaissance editions) for the first time in print. Hervet's edition of Alexander's "Questiones" came to have a profound influence on the development of Renaissance Aristotelianism. The "Questiones" had appeared earlier, e.g. in 1541, and were by no means unknown to Renaissance thinkers at the time, but Hervet was an authority of a certain character, which meant that his edition was both read in a certain light and preferred by a great deal of thinkers. Furthermore, it seems that the 4th part, being 30 answers to the traditional 69 questions, here appears for the first time in print, making this a very important edition. In addition to the first three parts, it became customary to add a fourth part to Alexander's "Questiones", but that traditional fourth part was his "De Fato", and not as here the 30 solutions. It is worth noting that Hervet had in fact already translated Alexander's "De Fato", which he published in 1544. Alexander's, also known as simply as "The Commentator", impact upon the development of philosophy can hardly be overestimated, and his various "Problems and Questions", all aimed at establishing the views of Aristotle, came to influence all reading of Aristotle in the Renaissance. "He was read in the classroom of Plotinus, who probably drew on him to a greater extent than we will ever be able to tell; and when later Platonists show themselves critical of Aristotle's arguments, they can often be shown to attack Alexander's interpretation of Aristotle rather than Aristotle himself. The physician Galen, whose logic, epistemology and physics bear a distinctive Peripatetic stamp, chose to disagree with Alexander on, for instance, issues of dynamics and psychology." (p. 244).Although his "Questions" were aimed at understanding the views of Aristotle, he established the views of the Stagirite in a version updated to take account of Stoic and other alternatives, as the best and most defensible current (i.e. 2nd-3rd cent.) ideas on their subjects. "For Alexander, the inspired genius of Aristotle's writings was a sufficient basis, if they were properly interpreted, explicated, and fleshed out, to resolve with complete satisfaction all the questions debated among philosophers of varying schools in his own time." (Cambr. Comp.). In his seminal "Questiones", he quarrelled with both Platonism and Stoicism in his attempts to develop Peripatetic answers to questions Aristotle had not dealt with in any detail.It is a curious but generally accepted conception that with the rise of the Renaissance came the fall of Aristotle. Weather this is actually true can be disputed, but it is a fact that with the recovery of many lost works of ancient literature, the widening of the range of classical studies and the renewed interest in Plato, Aristotle was no longer the sole authority on a huge number of fields. That this should mean a total ignorance of the teachings of Aristotle must be considered somewhat of a myth (though a very frequently repeated one), and in fact with the grand humanists of the late 15th and early 16th century, the study of Aristotle fits perfectly with the broader comprehension of scholarship. The great humanists like Ficino, Pico and Pomponazzi had not forgotten about Aristotle, and the revival of learning did not mean the neglect of the prince of philosophers. On the contrary, with the appreciation of the knowledge of Greek and the invention of the printing, works were being translated and printed like never before, which meant that the greatest of the humanists, many of whom did not themselves know Greek, could be acquainted with the Greek texts of Aristotle and the Greek commentaries of "The Commentator", Alexander of Aphrodisias, in Latin translation. "Equally important for the continued growth of the Peripatetic synthesis was the recovery and diffusion of the Greek commentaries on Aristotle. These treatises, about ten times longer than the works they discuss, were written by pagans and Christians, Platonists and Peripatetics in late antiquity, between the second and seventh centuries in the Greek world of the Eastern Mediterranean, and then again in twelfth-century Byzantium. The most important of the two dozen commentators were Alexander of Aphrodisias, Ammonius, Simplicius, Themistius and John Philoponus. Of these five, only Alexander and Themistius were Aristotelians..." (Copenhaver & Schmitt, p. 68).One of the most important of these Renaissance Humanists, who with his translations helped spread the knowledge and understanding of Aristotle and his commentators, was Gentian Hervet, who came to play a dominant role in the course of 16th century thought. "Gentian Hervet (d. 1584) was a committed churchman, who after studies in the universities of Orleans and Paris lived in the household of Reginald Pole, later to become Archbishop of Canterbury and Cardinal, at first in England then - as Pole had, because of the Reformation, to leave England - in Padua, Venice and Rome. Hervet took part with Marcello Cervini (later Pope Marcellus II) in the first sessions of the Council of Trent. He returned to France in 1555 as vicar general to the bishop of Noyon and wrote pamphlets against the Huguenots. In 1561 he entered the service of the Cardinal of Lorraine, Charles de Guise, whom he accompanied to the third period of the Council of Trent (1562-3). In 1564 he took part as canon of the cathedral in the provincial council of Rheims, in which the cardinal published the decrees of the Council of Trent. About the time of his activity in the Council of Trent the focal point of Hervet's translations shifted. He translated not only the Greek Fathers of the Church, but in addition, under the influence of academic scepticism as represented also by Reginal Pole, Sextus Empiricus' "Adversus Mathematicos" (Paris, 1569). He had long been active as translator of works connected with the Aristotelian philosophy. During an earlier sojurn in Rome, he published a number of philosophical texts which concerned the controversies surrounding Pietro Pomponazzi. In 1544 he translated into Latin Aristotle's "De anima", together with the commentary of Johannes Philoponus. There followed translations of Alexander of Aphrodisias's "De fato" (1544) and "Quaestiones naturales et morales" (1548) and of Zacharias Scholasticus's "Ammonius: Dialogus quod mundus non sit Deo coaeternus" (1546). In these works Hervet described those who denied the immortality of the soul as atheists and as opponents of Aristotle and his commentators." (Lohr, p. 36). "Since the Renaissance had to discover or rediscover the tools of philology and history needed for such detective work, the pioneering labours of obscure humanist scholars - Gentian Hervet, who translated sextus, or William Canter, who first published a Greek text of the "Eclogae" of Stobaeus - certainly deserve our memory and admiration. It was they who first edited, organized, translated, printed, and disseminated the philosophical remains of antiquity that succeeding centuries have come to take for granted. If Thales and his successors were the fathers of Western philosophy, the humanist scholars of the Renaissance were the midwives of its rebirth in a classical form." (Copenhaver & Schmitt, p. 18).
