        Astronomicarum Institutionum Libri III. Quibus doctrinae sphaericae elementa methodo nova, facili, & ad captum Tyronum aptissima traduntur.

      Venice: Paulo Meietti, 1580. Soft cover. Very Good. Large 8vo. [14.5 x 9.9 cm]. (8), 192 ff., with numerous textual woodcut illustrations. Bound in contemporary limp vellum, manuscript title on spine. Minor rubbing to binding, some wrinkling to spine. Minor browning in some quires, some minor marginal worming not affecting text, a few contemporary inscriptions in the text. Generally very good.Very rare first edition, second issue of this understudied work, "apparently the earliest Italian imprint to depict and discuss the Copernican system" (Gingerich) by the Cologne-born Professor of Mathematics at Padua. The work includes a printed diagram of the geo-heliocentric system of Martianus Capella (41r) as well as a diagram and exposition of the Copernican system (leaf 41v). The work is included in the Galileo bibliography of Cinti (no. 5) owing to the Copernican diagram. Cinti does not comment further than this, but it is interesting to speculate that the young Galileo (b. 1564), whether as a student at Pisa or a lecturer at Padua, may have encountered the Copernican hypothesis in the present work. It is not surprising that the exegesis of Copernicus would come relatively late to Catholic Italy in comparison to Protestant, German speaking countries, in light of both the establishment of the Index of Prohibited Books (1559) and the widespread efforts of the Counter-Reformation to insure doctrinal conformity in printed books. That it passed the watchful eye of the censor at all is probably due to its appearance in an unassuming astronomy primer and the somewhat hypothetical manner in which the theory is expressed. Although the impact of Naibod's work in Italy is difficult to assess, it is positively known that a copy of the first issue was owned by Tycho Brahe, still extant in the Clementinum in Prague, and it has been argued by the historian of astronomy Robert Westman that Tycho's encounter with the geo-heliocentric diagram of Martianus influenced the development of the Tychonic system. It also has been suggested that the Tycho assistant Paul Wittich was familiar with this work, and that the concept of "world system" (systema mundi) employed by Kepler, Tycho and Galileo originated with the present work."In his elementary textbook of astronomy Valentin Nabod gave the system of Martianus Capella in which Mercury and Venus revolve about the sun. He added that Copernicus had taken occasion from this to make Saturn, Jupiter and Mars, and indeed everything included within the sphere of the moon, revolve about the sun as center of the universe, while the sun and fixed stars remain unmoved. Copernicus had thus 'with so small a number of spheres' saved all the phenomena through the ages, as no one before him had done, with the greatest praise and admiration of the learned. Nabod then presented a figure of the Copernican system, which, as we have seen, was an unusual thing to do in an elementary textbook. He remarked that no one should be greatly offended by the movement of the earth and quiet of the sun. If, however, anyone preferred to consider the earth at rest and the sun as in motion, he could reach the same results by practically the same demonstrations, as was understood by all who knew anything about mathematics" (Thorndike, VI.40).Naibod (d. 1593) matriculated at Wittenberg in 1544, one year after the publication of De Revolutionibus, when the faculty included such important Copernicans as Reinhold and Melanchthon. He also wrote commentaries on the astrologer Alcabitius and on the Sphere of Sacrobosco. He acquired a certain amount of fame in the astrological literature of his own time for the rare feat of successfully predicting the day of his own death (see Thorndike VI.121). OCLC lists Huntington (Dibner), CIT, and Harvard. No American copy of Primarum de coelo (Venice 1573), though OCLC lists 4/5 German/Swiss copies. * Cinti 5; not in Riccardi and no mention in Rose, The Italian Renaissance of Mathematics; Weil Cat.29.39 (c. 1950); Thorndike V.40, VI.40ff., 119ff.; Poggendorf II.

        Giuditta con la testa di Oloferne

      1580 - Bulino, 1579-1581 circa, privo di firma. Da un soggetto di Lorenzo Sabbatini, il cui nome appare in basso a sinistra. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L’incisione deriva da un dipinto di Lorenzo Sabbatini che, secondo Gori Gandinelli, apparteneva alla famiglia Bianchetti di Bologna. Del quadro si era persa traccia, finché nel Gabinetto delle Stampe a Milano è comparso un quadro catalogato come il medesimo della raccolta Bianchetti. In realtà, l’identificazione non appare certa, e il quadro potrebbe essere una copia del Sabbatini. Rispetto al modello originale, la stampa presenta delle differenze che potrebbe essere spiegate ipotizzando che Agostino avesse a disposizione un disegno preparatorio del Sabbatini, oggi perduto. Nella stampa, manca la decorazione ai bordi del tavolo, e l’espressione del volto di Giuditta è più gentile ed eroica rispetto al dipinto. Le pieghe voluminose della veste che indossa conferiscono alla donna una maggiore spazialità rispetto al modello. La storia di Giuditta è narrata nella Bibbia Cristiana: per salvare la propria città di Betulia, assediata dagli Assiri di Oloferne, generale di Nabucodonosor, Giuditta si recò con la serva nel campo nemico, per sedurlo. Colpito dalla sua bellezza, il generale cadde nella trappola, e una notte, mentre giaceva nella sua tenda ubriaco, Giuditta gli tagliò la testa e la portò in città, complice la sua ancella. Il giorno dopo la testa di Oloferne fu esposta sulle mura della città, e gli Assiri, atterriti, fuggirono via. La storia è stata fonte di ispirazioni per i più grandi artisti, tra cui Mantegna, Tiziano, Michelangelo, Caravaggio, fino ad arrivare a Klimt. Bellissimo esemplare. Engraving, about 1579-1581, unsigned. After a painting by Lorenzo Sabbatini, whose name appears at the lower left. Excellent work, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, trimmed to the copperplate, in excellent condition. Agostino Carracci had made a reproductive engraving after a painting by a Bolognese mannerist, Lorenzo Sabbatini of Judith with the head of Holofernes, now in the collection of the Banca del Monte di Bologna e Ravenna, Bologna. According to Gori Gandinelli, the painting belonged to the family Bianchetti from Bologna. It was lost any track of painting, until in the Gabinetto delle Stampe in Milan appeared a painting listed as the same of the Bianchetti collection. The identification doesn’t appears certain, and the picture could be a copy of Sabbatini. Compared to the original model, the engraving has some differences that could be explained by assuming that Augustine had available a preparatory drawing of Sabbatini, now lost. In the print, missing the decoration of the table’s edge, and the expression of the face of Judith is kinder and heroic than the painting; the voluminous folds of the robe wearing give her more largeness than the model. The Old Testament narrates the episode of Judith: the Assyrian army has besieged the city of Bethulia. Its population cannot hold out any longer and is on the point of surrendering. The rih and beautiful widow Judith devises a plan to save her city. Making himself alluring, che journeys to the enemy camp with her maidservant and, pretending to have deserted her people, approaches General Holofernes. Spending several days in the camp, with the excuse of proposing a plan to conquer Betulia, Judith causes Holofernes to fall in love with her. He invites her to banquet. At the edn of the feast, Judith fatally stikes the general, who is overpowered by drink. She severs his head, and her maidservant places the trophy in a bag. The two women move quickly through the camp and return to the city of Betulia undetected. The death of Holofernes causes confusion among the Assirian, who flee ans persued by the Israelitian. The next morning Judith has the severed head of Holofernes set up on the wall of Bethania. Judith embodies the power of the

        Il ricco Epulone

      1580 - Acquaforte e bulino, 1580 circa, non datato; nel margine inferiore un verso in latino Erumnos hic Lazarus iacens ad ianuam divitis micas etiam canibus obiectas de mensa Epulonis petit. Lu. 16. Più a destra : Luca Berteli formis. Bellisisma prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva ed applicata su antico supporto di collezione, rifiliata al rame, in perfetto sttao di conservazione. La scena raffigura la parabola l’episodio di Lazzaro alla mensa del ricco Epulone, che è parte della parabola di Lazzaro ed Epulone, raccontata nel vangelo secondo Luca 16:19-31. La scena è ambientata sullo sfondo di in un vasto paesaggio in cui, sulla destra,in primo piano emerge una costruzione con archi; sotto gli archi, il ricco Epulone è seduto a meda con altri commensali, mentre all’esterno della struttura c’è Lazzaro appoggiato ad un bastone a mendicare gli avanzi, mentre tre cani abbaiano contro di lui per allontanarlo. Sullo sfondo, si scorge un piccolo villaggio con dei mulini ed un ponte. Sul fiume, c’è una piccola barca con due figure; altre tre sono raffigurate lungo la riva. Secondo Malaspina, l’incisione deriva da un disegno di Domenico Campagnola, perché sulla parabola del ricco Epulone esistono tre incisioni, all’incirca delle stesse dimensioni, tutte con l’indirizzo di Luca Bertelli. Oltre la presente, una seconda con l’episodio della Morte di Epulone e una terza raffigurante Epulone all’Inferno. Quest’ultima presenta nel mezzo un cartello con l’iscrizione D.C.IN. che potrebbe interpretarsi come Domenico Campagnola Inventor Zani elenca l’opera sotto Campagnola ma aggiunge "forse Francesco Valeggio". In effetti Nagler descrive un’opera praticamente identica alla presente, con il medesimo verso latino nel margine e l’indirizzo di Bertelli, avente però il monogramma di Francesco Valegio. Il nostro esemplare, con il solo indirizzo di Bertelli, attesterebbe, quindi, uno stato della lastra anteriore. Il paesaggio è tizianesco, infatti questa incisione è descritta da Hume tra altre che presentano paesaggi "after" Tiziano. Lo stile dell’incisione rimanda proprio alla scuola italiana, più specificamente all’area veneta. Magnifico esemplare di questa opera rarissima. Etching and engraving, 1580 circa, not dated, inscribed at bottom margin: Erumnos hic Lazarus iacens ad ianuam divitis micas etiam canibus obiectas de mensa Epulonis petit. Lu. 16. At right: Luca Berteli formis. A very good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the platemark, very good condition. The scene depicts a landscape with the story of Lazarus and the rich man (Luke 16:19-31): the rich man is seen at table in an open building with several arches ; near the arch towards the middle, is Lazarus leaning on a stick, while three dogs are barking at him and to the left, in the background, some houses and mills, also a bridge. According to Malaspina, probably the inventor of the scene is Domenico Campagnola, because there are three engravings on Lazarus and the rich man, all with Bertelli address and of the same size: these one; "the death of Dives" and "Dives in hell". The last one, in the center carries the inscription D.C.IN., that maybe means "Domenico Campagnola Inventor". Zani listed the work under Campagnola, but adds "forse (maybe) Francesco Valeggio". Nagler describes a print of the same subject, with the same Latin inscription, the Bertelli’s address but with Francesco Valegio’monogram. Therefore, our example indicates an earlier state of the plate, before Valegio’ signature. The landscape is in the style of Titian, in fact this print is listed by Hume, at n. LXXVIII among the work with a landscape after Titian. A great example of this very rare work. Nagler, (Cf-Gi), p. 396; A. Hume, Notices of the life and works of Titian, LXXVIII; Malaspina, II, 98; Zani, VI (parte II), pp. 248-249. Dimensioni 382 248mm

        Testamenti veteris biblia sacra sive libri canonici, priscae iudaeorum ecclesiae a deo traditi

      London: Excudebat Henricus Middletonus, 1580. FIRST EDITION. Woodcut title vignette, woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces. Later tree calf in a contemporary style, spine with raised bands and "Biblia Sacra" in gilt; very narrow strip cut away from top of title page affecting manuscript ownership signature. Lacking the final two parts as well as the separate title pages for the second through fourth individual parts. Contemporary annotations. First edition of the first complete Latin Bible printed in England, one of five imprints of the 1580 edition. The Latin translation from the Hebrew and Syriac was the work of Immanuel Tremellius (1510-1580), an Italian Jewish convert, first to Catholicism, then to Protenstantism. In 1547 he was invited to England by Thomas Cranmer (1489-1556), the Archbishop of Canterbury. In 1549 he succeeded Paul Fagius as Regius professor of Hebrew at Cambridge. He was assisted by Franciscus Junius (the Elder) (1545-1602), his son-in-law. Tremellius' translation first appeared in 1569 in Geneva, and portions relating to the Old Testament were published at Franfurt between 1575 and 1579. He here improved on the work of Thomas Berthelet's 1535 partial printing of the Vulgate to such an extent that he ultimately exerted considerable influence in England and on the Continent ("Although his version was far from faultless, it evinced very thorough scholarship, and for long, both in England and on the continent, was adopted by the reformers as the most accurate Latin rendering. With some alterations it even received the sanction of the universities of Douai and Louvain"; see ODNB). STC 2056.8.

        Constitutionum Provincialium Tarraconensium Libri Quinque.

      Tarracone, Apud Philippum Mey, 1580. - in-4. 28ff. 411pp. 24ff. Plein vélin souple, titre manuscrit au dos (reliure de l'époque). Edition Originale de cet ouvrage important pour l'histoire de Tarragone, publié par le grand humaniste et historien espagnol Antonio Agustin i Albanell. Né à Saragosse en 1516, Agustin étudia dans les universités d'Alcala de Henares et de Salamanque, puis dans celle de Bologne en Italie. Il fut un éminent jurisconsulte qui se vit confier d'importantes fonctions, dont celle d'auditeur dans la Sacra Rota Romana pour laquelle il avait eu l'appui de l'empereur Charles V. Evêque de Lérida en 1561 il fut nommé en 1576 évêque de Tarragone où il mourut en 1586. Cet ouvrage contient les règles - issues notamment des différents conciles qui avaient eu lieu à Tarragone- qui organisaient la vie sociale et la vie ecclésiastique. Il contient des directives sur les moeurs, l'économie, le commerce, l'alimentation, les sortilèges, les Juifs, les Arabes, etc. "Fruit de la réforme catholique autant que du renouveau des études juridiques, le droit écclésiastique fut également l'objet de publications savantes autant que de commenaires érudits ( ) Les travaux d'Antonio Agustin ne furent pas négligeables à cet égard. Philologue, numismate, historien du droit romain, il apporta à l'étude du droit canonique toutes les ressources de l'humanisme juridique dont il était l'un des meilleurs interprètes. Citons de lui son "Epitome Juris Pontifici" et ses "Constitutionum provincialium Tarraconensium libri quinque (1580), recueil des conciles de Tarragone et des ordonnances des archevêques de cette ville depuis les temps les plus reculés" (Sutto). Rousseurs, assez prononcées aux premiers feuillets. Infime travail de ver dans la marge intérieure de quelques pages, sans atteinte au texte. Bon exemplaire dans son vélin d'origine. Palau, 59845. Cf. "Antonio Agustín between Renaissance and Counter-Reform" (Londres: The Warburg Institute, 1993). C. Sutto, "Les assises juridiques de l'histoire" [in:"L'Epoque de la Renaissance (Crises et essors nouveaux, 1560-1610)"]. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Venedig, Petrus Dehuchinus 1580 - 2 Teile in 1 Band. 4°. 8 n.n. Bl., 50 Bl., 88 Bl., 37 Bl., 1 n.n. S. Errata und Druckvermerk. Mit einigen Holzschnittdiagrammen im Text. Der am Schluss gedruckte Kalender in Rot und Schwarz. Etwas späterer Lederband mit rotem goldgeprägtem Rückenschild, Rückenvergoldung und blindgepräger Deckelfiletierung. Riccardi I, 164-65. - Erste Ausgabe. - Einer der wichtigsten Texte zur Kalenderreform unter Gregor XIII, dem das Buch gewidmet ist. Moleti (oder Moletti) (1531-1588) war Physiker, Mathematiker und Astronom. Er war der Vorgänger Galileo Galileis an der Universität von Padua. Früh wurde bei dem aus vornehmen Hause stammenden Moleti die mathematische Begabung erkannt und gefördert. So wurde er Lehrer des Prinzen des Herzogs von Mantova und 1577 Professor der Mathematik in Padua. Die von der Republik Venedig in Auftrag gegebene Arbeit fand bei Papst Gregor XIII Anerkennung und wurde mit 300 Dukaten belohnt. Zu Lebzeiten veröffentlichte Moleti neben der vorliegenden Schrift nur noch eine Einleitung in die Geographie, einen Band mit Ephemeriden, ein astronomisches Tafelwerk. Als Professor behandelte er jedoch auch die aktuellen Forschungen seiner Zeit, wie ein Kommentar zu Nikolaus Kopernikus De revolutionibus orbium coelestium zeigt. - Aus der Bibliothek des Earls of Macclesfield's "South Library" at Shirburn Castle, mit gestochenem Exlibris auf dem Innendeckel. - Einband an den Kanten leicht beschabt und im Rückengelenk angeplatzt. Mit etlichen Bleistiftanmerkungen sonst breitrandiges Exemplar auf starkem Papier. - Selten. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Advertissemens à M. Jean Bodin sur le quatriesme livre de sa République. Autres advertissemens dudit Ferrier sur la loy Domus D. de legat I.

      Arnaud et Jacques Colomiés, Toulouse 1580 - ____ Première édition. Dans le quatrième livre de sa République, Bodin avait reproché à son ancien ami, Auger Ferrier d'avoir indiqué une opposition entre Vénus et Mercure, ce qui est une impossibilité astronomique. Auger Ferrier lui répond et, après sa justification, critique une centaine de propositions de "La République" de Bodin. Ferrier est clairement un adepte de Copernic et il ne mâche pas ses mots : "C'est faux", "vous vous trompez", "la figure céleste de la création du monde a esté mieux espluchée par ledict Jean Pic que par vous", "vous avez esté trop crédule ". L'année suivante Bodin répliqua aux attaques de Ferrier et de quelques autres, en publiant une "Apologie de René Herpin pour la République de J. Bodin". Bodin l'accuse d'avoir mal lu Copernic, alors que lui, Bodin, reste un géocentrique affirmé, toutes les conjectures de Copernic ayant été rejetées par les "mathématiciens", il faut entendre ici les astronomes. (Max Engammare, Soixante-trois, la peur de la grande année climactérique à la Renaissance, p. 100 et suiv.) Auger Ferrier (1513-1588), médecin, professeur à la Faculté de Toulouse, était astrologue de Marie de Médicis. Le feuillet B2 a été rogné au raz du texte avec perte probable d'une manchette, le dos a été renforcé par une bande de papier au XIXe. Provenances : - Senaux (signature sur le titre, peut-être Jean de Senaux, magistrat toulousain, né en 1580). "De la bibliothèque de l'abbé Goujet 1746" (inscription au bas du titre). Claude-Pierre Goujet (1697 - 1767) historien et religieux janséniste avait constitué une bibliothèque de 10 000 volumes, dont le catalogue est demeuré manuscrit. Il est l'auteur de nombreux travaux d'érudition, dont d'importants suppléments au "Dictionnaire historique" de Moreri.

        Album of horse etchings.

      [Paris, early 17th century]. - Oblong 12mo (124 x 78 mm). 24 etchings of horses, each ca. 8 x 5 cms, mounted individually on leaves and bound as an album. Modern full vellum using contemporary material. A complete series of 24 highly expressive etchings of horses, each numbered in the plate and bound (somewhat out of order) in an appealing pocket-sized vellum album. The engraver Pierre Firens (also: Fierens, ca. 1580-1636) was of Flemish origin, probably hailing from Antwerp, but settled in Paris in 1604, soon operating as a publisher and engraver mainly of ornaments. This is a charming suite of two dozen portraits showing horses in various attitudes; the first print is signed. - Very finely preserved. Uncommon. For Firens cf. AKL XL, 251; Thieme/Becker XII, 7.

      - DSB IV, p. 552; VD 17, 23:297705X (2 copies); WorldCat (3 copies). Rare first and only edition of a work solving a mathematic problem concerning the calculation of compound interest, by Johann Faulhaber (1580-1635), teacher of mathematics at Ulm. Faulhaber, trained as a weaver under his father, soon turned to mathematics. He became the most important of the "Cossists", mathematicians concerned with algebra in the 16th century. After publishing his first arithmetic text, Faulhaber founded his own school in Ulm in 1600, which gained international fame as an educational institute for higher mathematics and later also an artillery and engineering school. He taught Descartes and had a lively contact with Keppler. Faulhaber was also the first to introduce logarithms into Germany and was much in demand as fortification engineer, receiving many assignments in this field from the King of Sweden and others. He published numerous mathematical works, mostly in German, and invented several instruments.With library stamps. In good condition, with some worm holes in the gutter margin, not affecting the text, and some minor water stains.

Quatrième édition augmentée, la dernière et la plus complète des œuvres d’Olympia Morata (1526-1555), femme de lettres, poétesse, professeure de langues anciennes, l’une des femmes les plus brillantes et les plus influentes de la Renaissance italienne. Fille de l’humaniste Pellegrino Moretto, elle fut élevée à la cour de Ferrare, se convertit au calvinisme et épousa un médecin allemand réformé Andreas Grundler. Poursuivis par l’inquisition, ils durent fuir l’Italie vers Schweinfurt en Allemagne. Mais là encore, chassé par la guerre, ils se réfugièrent à Erbach, puis à Heidelberg. Elle y mourut à 29 ans de la tuberculose quelques mois avant son mari et leur fils unique, eux de la peste. Ses écrits furent pour la plupart perdus ou détruits au cours de ses pérégrinations, à l’exception des oeuvres réunies dans ce volume par l'humaniste Celio Secondo Curione, mentor de l’auteure et ami de la famille: une importante correspondance, des poèmes et oraisons ainsi que des traductions d’Esope et de Boccace. Olympia Morata est la première femme dont les écrits ont été mis à l’index de Rome. L’éditeur-imprimeur, Pietro Perna (1522-1582), originaire de Lucca, également partisan de la réforme s’exila à Bâle. Il entretenait des liens étroits avec l’Angleterre et dédie ce livre à la Elisabeth 1er. Vignette de titre à la marque de l’imprimeur, lettrines, la page d’épitaphe à Morata est ornée d’un large décor d’encadrement allégorique figurant l’Allemagne et l’Italie de part et d’autre. Caractères grecs et latins. (Adams, M-1741. Bujanda, ‘Index de Rome’, 411. Erdmann, ‘My gracious silence: Women in the mirror of 16th c. printing', 116-117). Quelques brunissures et rousseurs.

        De Simonia - Contemporary, original manuscript of Francisco Suarez work "De Simonia".

      , 1580. ca.1580-1620. 8°. 93 leaves ((2), 188 pages). Hardcover / Original pigskin. Very good condition with only minor split to upper hinge. Some external wear. Faint dampstain to lower margins. The manuscript seems to be either a compendium of excerpts related to Suarez' "De Simonia" or even an outline of the work. While it looks like a personal selection, a summary of chapters of the writer, the irregular corrrespondence of chapters between the manuscript and the finished work, allows us to speculate on this manuscript being a possible draft. The manuscript is quarto sized in contemporary vellum with the title penned on an upper spine compartment and the number 41 at the foot of the spine. The manuscript has a title page stating 'De Simonia' which precedes the 93 leaf treatise and is followed by two leaves of 'Index Capitum, que in hoc continentur tractatu'. The manuscript is in a regular forward sloping scribal hand with between 20 and 25 lines per page. The text is divided into 39 chapters. The Index reads: Index Capitum que in hoc continentur tractatu: I - Quid sit Simonia et uncle dicatur (identical with Chapter I of Suarez' "De Simonia" / II - Affectur divisio Simonie / III - An in peccato simoniae sit tantium malitia contra religionem an etiam contra justitiam (identical with chapter IV of "De Simonia) etc. / XVI An Beneficia Ecclesiastica sint materia Simonia Jure Divina nel Jure Ecclesiastico etc., etc. / Images of the work and the Index on request. [See full text of Francisco Suarez "De Simonia" in "Theologiae Cursus Completus" - by Jacques Paul Migne (Tomus Decimus-Septimus: De Censuris - De Irregularitatibus - De Simonia - De Oratione) Paris, 1841].nnFrancisco Suárez (5 January 1548 ? 25 September 1617) was a Spanish Jesuit priest, philosopher and theologian, one of the leading figures of the School of Salamanca movement, and generally regarded among the greatest scholastics after Thomas Aquinas. His work is considered a turning point in the history of second scholasticism, marking the transition from its Renaissance to its Baroque phasis.nHis most important philosophical achievements were in metaphysics and the philosophy of law. Suárez may be considered the last eminent representative of mediaeval scholasticism. He adhered to a moderate form of Thomism and developed metaphysics as a systematic enquiry.nFor Suárez, metaphysics was the science of real essences (and existence); it was mostly concerned with real being rather than conceptual being, and with immaterial rather than with material being. He held (along with earlier scholastics) that essence and existence are the same in the case of God (see ontological argument), but disagreed with Aquinas and others that the essence and existence of finite beings are really distinct. He argued that in fact they are merely conceptually distinct: rather than being really separable, they can only logically be conceived as separate.nnOn the vexed subject of universals, he endeavored to steer a middle course between the realism of Duns Scotus and the nominalism of William of Occam. His position is a little bit closer to nominalism than that of Thomas Aquinas. Sometimes he is classified as a moderate nominalist, but his admitting of objective precision (praecisio obiectiva) ranks him with moderate realists. The only veritable and real unity in the world of existences is the individual; to assert that the universal exists separately ex parte rei would be to reduce individuals to mere accidents of one indivisible form. Suárez maintains that, though the humanity of Socrates does not differ from that of Plato, yet they do not constitute realiter one and the same humanity; there are as many "formal unities" (in this case, humanities) as there are individuals, and these individuals do not constitute a factual, but only an essential or ideal unity ("In such a way, that many individuals, which are said to be of the same nature, are so: only through the operation of the intellect, not through a substance or essence of things which unites them"). The formal unity, however, is not an arbitrary creation of the mind, but exists "in the nature of the thing, prior [ontologically] to any operation of the intellect".nnHis metaphysical work, giving a remarkable effort of systematisation, is a real history of medieval thought, combining the three schools available at that time: Thomism, Scotism and Nominalism. He is also a deep commentator of Arabic or high medieval works. He enjoyed the reputation of being the greatest metaphysician of his time. He thus founded a school of his own, Suarezianism (...).nSuárez made an important classification of being in Disputationes Metaphysicae (1597), which influenced the further development of theology within Catholicism (his fellow Jesuit Pedro da Fonseca having a powerful effect on Protestant Scholastic thought in the 16th and 17th centuries). In the second part of the book, disputations 28-53, Suárez fixes the distinction between ens infinitum (God) and ens finitum (created beings). The first division of being is that between ens infinitum and ens finitum. Instead of dividing being into infinite and finite, it can also be divided into ens a se and ens ab alio, i.e., being that is from itself and being that is from another. A second distinction corresponding to this one:ens necessarium and ens contingens, i.e., necessary being and contingent being. Still another formulation of the distinction is between ens per essentiam and ens per participationem, i.e., being that exists by reason of its essence and being that exists only by participation in a being that exists on its own. A further distinction is between ens increatum and ens creatum, i.e., uncreated being and created, or creaturely, being. A final distinction is between being as actus purus and being as ens potentiale, i.e., being as pure actuality and being as potential being. Suárez decided in favor of the first classification of the being into ens infinitum and ens finitum as the most fundamental, in connection with which he accords the other classifications their due. nIn theology, Suárez attached himself to the doctrine of Luis Molina, the celebrated Jesuit professor of Évora. Molina tried to reconcile the doctrine of predestination with the freedom of the human will and the predestinarian teachings of the Dominicans by saying that the predestination is consequent upon God's foreknowledge of the free determination of man's will, which is therefore in no way affected by the fact of such predestination. Suárez endeavoured to reconcile this view with the more orthodox doctrines of the efficacy of grace and special election, maintaining that, though all share in an absolutely sufficient grace, there is granted to the elect a grace which is so adapted to their peculiar dispositions and circumstances that they infallibly, though at the same time quite freely, yield themselves to its influence. This mediatizing system was known by the name of "congruism."nHere Suárez' main importance stems probably from his work on natural law, and from his arguments concerning positive law and the status of a monarch. In his extensive work Tractatus de legibus ac deo legislatore (reprinted, London, 1679) he is to some extent the precursor of Grotius and Samuel Pufendorf, in making an important distinction between natural law and international law, which he saw as based on custom. Though his method is throughout scholastic, he covers the same ground, and Grotius speaks of him in terms of high respect. The fundamental position of the work is that all legislative as well as all paternal power is derived from God, and that the authority of every law resolves itself into His. Suárez refutes the patriarchal theory of government and the divine right of kings founded upon it---doctrines popular at that time in England and to some extent on the Continent. He argued against the sort of social-contract theory that became dominant among early-modern political philosophers such as Thomas Hobbes and John Locke, but some of his thinking found echoes in the more liberal, Lockean contract theorists.nnHuman beings, argued Suárez, have a social nature bestowed upon them by God, and this includes the potential to make laws. But when a political society is formed, the authority of the state is not of divine but of human origin; therefore, its nature is chosen by the people involved, and their natural legislative power is given to the ruler.[6] Because they gave this power, they have the right to take it back, to revolt against a ruler ? but only if the ruler behaves badly towards them, and they're obliged to act moderately and justly. In particular, the people must refrain from killing the ruler, no matter how tyrannical he may have become. If a government is imposed on people, on the other hand, they not only have the right to defend themselves by revolting against it, they are entitled to kill the tyrannical ruler.nnIn 1613, at the instigation of Pope Paul V, Suárez wrote a treatise dedicated to the Christian princes of Europe, entitled Defensio catholicae fidei contra anglicanae sectae errores ("Defense of the Universal Catholic Faith Against the Errors of the Anglican Sect").This was directed against the oath of allegiance which James I required from his subjects. James (himself a talented scholar) caused it to be burned by the common hangman, and forbade its perusal under the 'severest penalties, complaining bitterly to Philip III that he should harbour in his dominions a declared enemy of the throne and majesty of kings.nn De Incarnatione (1590-1592)n De sacramentis (1593-1603)n Disputationes metaphysicae (1597)n De divina substantia eiusque attributis (1606)n De divina praedestinatione et reprobatione (1606)n De sanctissimo Trinitatis mysterio (1606)n De religione (1608-1625)n De legibus (1612)n De gratia (1619)n De angelis (1620)n De opere sex dierum (1621)n De anima (1621)n De fide, spe et charitate (1622)n De ultimo fine hominis (1628)nnIn the 18th century, the Venice edition of Opera Omnia in 23 volumes in folio (1740?1751) appeared, followed by the Parisian Vivès edition, 26 volumes2 volumes of indices (1856?1861); in 1965 the Vivés edition of the Disputationes Metaphysicae (volls. 25-26) was reprinted by Georg Olms, Hildesheim. From 1597 to 1636 the Disputationes Metaphysicae were published in seventeen editions; no modern edition of Suárez's complete works is yet available and only few of Suárez's Disputations have been translated into English.nThe contributions of Suarez to metaphysics and theology exerted significant influence over 17th and 18th century scholastic theology among both Roman Catholics and Protestants.nnThanks in part to the strength of Suárez's Jesuit order, his Disputationes Metaphysicae was widely taught in the Catholic schools of Spain, Portugal and Italy.nnIt also spread from these schools to many Lutheran universities in Germany, where the text was studied especially by those who favoured Melanchthon rather than Luther's attitude towards philosophy. In a number of seventeenth-century Lutheran universities the Disputationes served as a textbook in philosophy.nnIn a similar way, Suárez had major influence in the Reformed tradition of German and Dutch schools for both metaphysics and law, including international law. His work was highly priased, for example, by Hugo Grotius (1583-1645).nnHis influence is evident in the writings of Bartholomaeus Keckermann (1571?1609), Clemens Timpler (1563?1624), Gilbertus Jacchaeus (1578?1628), Johann Heinrich Alsted (1588?1638), Antonius Walaeus (1573?1639), and Johannes Maccovius (Jan Makowski; 1588?1644), among others.[9] This influence was so pervasive that by 1643 it provoked the Dutch Reformed theologian Jacobus Revius to publish his book-length response: Suarez repurgatus.nnThe views of Suarez upon the human origin of political order, and his defense of tyrannicide emanating from popular dissent were heavily criticized by English philosopher Robert Filmer in his work Patriarcha, Or the Natural Power of Kings. Filmer believed the Calvinists and the Papists like Suarez to be dangerous opponents of divine right monarchy, legitimized by the supremacy of fathers upon their offspring, which Filmer claimed could be traced back to Adam.

Philologue, numismate, historien du droit romain, il apporta à l'étude du droit canonique toutes les ressources de l'humanisme juridique dont il était l'un des meilleurs interprètes.
