        Praelections Academicae in Danielem Prophetam, Habitae antehac Lipsiae (Academic Lectures [Commentaries] on the Book of the Prophet Daniel, delivered at Leipzig)

      Leipzig: Sumtibus Haeredum Friderici Lanckisii. Very Good with No dust jacket as issued. 1702. Third Edition. First Printing. Hard Cover. Third Edition, newly revised and amended (1702). Bound in full vellum, brown lettering on panel on spine. Martin Geier was born on July 27, 1615 in Leipzig. He enrolled at the University of Leipzig in 1626 and received his Baccalaurat of philosophy in 1629. He studied at the University of Strasbourg in 1631 and at the University of Jena in 1632. He returned to Leipzig, where he was awarded the academic degree of Magister in May of 1633. He then moved to the University of Wittenberg in June of 1633 and continued there his theological studies. In addition, Geier attended the lectures of Wilhelm Nigrinus, Paul Röber, Wilhelm Leyser I, Johann Hülsemann and Martin Trost. In 1636 he became a lay lecturer in Wittenberg, taught the Hebrew language and, in 1637, returned to Leipzig. On 19 August 1639 he became professor of the Hebrew language at the University of Leipzig. However, Geier wanted to pursue a theological career, and he became a subdeacon in Leipzig in 1643, a deacon in 1645, archdeacon in 1657 and in 1659 became pastor at the Leipzig Thomaskirche. After he had received his doctorate in law in 1645 and doctorate in theology in 1658, Geier became assessor of the theological faculty, as well as a full professor. He was the rector of the Leipzig Alma Mater in the winter semester of 1659, became dean of the faculty of theology in the winter semester of 1662/63 and, at the same time, the superintendent of Leipzig in 1661, as well as a consistorial councilor. On July 3, 1646 he was godfather of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz in the Leipzig Nikolaikirche. During his time in Leipzig, he established, among other things, the Collegium Gellianum. After Jakob Weller had died, in 1665 Elector Johann Georg II of Saxony summoned him to Oberhof as a high court preacher and church councilor. Geier was regarded as a theological zealot, who also emerged as the author of spiritual hymns, Old Testament Exegetes and accomplished editor.. Former owner's signature of fep, dated 1726, former owner's library stamp on ffep, otherwise unmarked. Original vellum moderately soiled and just beginning to split along front hinge only. Mild foxing throughout, paper supple. Text block tight, square, and clean. VERY GOOD. . Frontispiece Portrait. 8vo 8" - 9" tall. (xii), 1002, (22) pp .

        The Tragedies of L. Annaeus Seneca the Philosopher; Viz. Medea, Phaedra and Hippolytus, Troades, or the Royal Captives, and The Rape of Helen, out of the Greek of Coluthus . . . To which is prefixed the Life and Death of Seneca the Philosopher . . . Adorn'd with Sculptures representing each History

      London: Printed for S. Smith and B. Walford, 1702. First edition, second issue with five additional engraved plates, of Sherburne's English translations of Seneca's major tragedies. Seneca, the Stoic philosopher who advised the Emperor Nero, was one of the most accomplished writers of Latin's Silver Age. This collection includes his Medea, in which the tragic heroine speaks more than half the lines; Phaedra and Hippolytus, in which a struggle with lust highlights the virtues of Stoicism; and Troades, in which the women of Troy face death with bravery. The Rape of Helen, also included here, is a mini-epic in Homeric style by the late 5th-century Greek poet Colluthus. Translator Edward Sherburne was a Cavalier poet, a Roman Catholic, and a Loyalist during the English Civil War, when his estate, including his tremendous library, was seized in retribution for his allegiance to the king. Sherburne's interest in Seneca, who committed suicide by order of his emperor, perhaps reflects his own political sacrifices. Sherburne's Medea first appeared in 1648, The Rape of Helen in 1651, and Troades in 1679; the present volume is the first appearance of his translation of Phaedra and Hippolytus. Issued in the year of Sherburne's death, the collection includes not only the four plays, but also his biography of Seneca and a bibliographic essay, a record of Sherburne's lifelong attention to a philosopher whose values he admired. The 1701 first issue included only the frontispiece portrait of Seneca; the five additional engraved plates were produced for this second issue, which advertises the illustrations on the title page (DNB). That said, first issue copies are recorded with varying numbers of plates, suggesting that the illustrations became available very shortly after the text, in time to be added to some of the earliest copies. A fine copy of Seneca's tragedies, translated in an era of great political tumult, handsomely bound by Philip Dusel. Octavo, modern full period-style specked calf, boards paneled in blind with floral cornerpieces, raised bands, red morocco spine label lettered in gilt, spine elaborately ornamented in gilt, board edges tooled in gilt, all edges speckled red. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Seneca and five full-page engravings (one for each play, and one before notes in rear). Title leaf cancel (indicating second issue); separate title page for each play; endnotes, index and four-page printer's catalog at rear. Small ink number to upper corner of front free endpaper and to top right corner of final plate. A few small stains to text block edges.

        Mexican illuminated missal on vellum, titled:] Libro Primero de las Missas de la Virgen Nuestra Señora: Missas Votibas de Santos, Fiestas Moviles. Para el uso del Convento y Hospital de Nuestra Señora de Bethlem de Mexico

      Mexico 1702 - (20 7/8 x 15 inches). Manuscript in Latin and Spanish on 140 vellum leaves ([2], 1-134, [4]). Text in two different hands: 1. leaves numbered 1-134, plus 3 unnumbered pages of tables at the end; 2. five-stave musical notation in black only on pastedowns, 3 unnumbered pages at the beginning, leaf 134 verso, and 6 unnumbered pages at the end. Illumination: 56 illuminated initials in colors and gold (6 x 6 inches and smaller). Contemporary Mexican olive green morocco over wooden boards, covers elaborately tooled in gilt with a wide border built up from four fillets, a pomegranate and diamond roll, and a stylized foliage roll, each of the inner corners of the border tooled with a drawer handle tool from which radiate five stylized fan-leaves each enclosing a stylized flower-spray, beyond these a foliage tool repeated three times, at the center of the inner panel is a circular design which re-uses the tools used at the corners: a central circle formed by two drawer handle tools, from which radiates a larger circle formed from the fan-leaf tool repeated sixteen times, outside this the foliage tool repeated eight times, the flat spine divided into five compartments by gilt fillets, the four lower compartments each with a large single stylized flower-spray tool, iron clasps, small expert repairs to head and foot of spine, some scuffing to extremities, gilt edges Provenance: Bethlemite Brothers of Mexico City An exceptional Mexican illuminated missal and a fine example of Baroque Mexican book arts. The fifty-six gorgeously illuminated initials of this missal, made by the Bethlemite brothers of Mexico City, depict New World flora and fauna, including a wild turkey. Their style melds the traditional Renaissance book arts to an Andalusian decorative aesthetic, with a strong mannerist influence. The palate used for the illuminations consists of liquid gold, lavender, red, pink, black, white, yellow, and purple. Many of the initials are adorned with miniatures of animals, birds, flowers, and insects, and the remaining are presented on elaborate fields of geometric patterns. Besides the turkey, animals portrayed include foxes, parrots, a peacock, squirrels, a monkey, herons, finches, crested birds, dogs, storks, deer, ducks, an owl, and butterflies, to name a sampling. The flowers and foliage include a wide variety of stylized and occasionally exotic flowers. The initials that are presented on geometric patterned fields represent two styles: traditional European of the sort found in Renaissance manuscripts, and clearly Hispano-Moresque influenced, of a type more usually associated with Southern Spain. The contents of the missal include: The Kyrie, Gloria, and Credo; Masses of the Virgin; Masses from the Sanctoral and Temporal; with a Hymn to the Virgin on the front pastedown and flyleaf, and the Asperges on the endleaf and rear pastedown. The manuscript was produced during a second golden age for Mexico City. During the 18th-century it was the largest and richest city in the New World. After a century of decline, Mexico's silver production was again robust thanks to new technologies and other sometimes cut-throat business practices; additionally, much of Spain's trade with the Spice Islands, China, and the rest of Asia passed though Mexico City. This brought additional wealth to its merchants, a fact that was reflected in the opulence of the life-style. This opulence meant that the city was able to support artists and artisans of the highest caliber in many fields, including manuscript illumination. From the beginning in the 16th century onwards, Mexico had adopted a Spanish tradition of illuminated manuscript works on vellum that had two branches to it: a secular and religious. The secular arm was supported by the constant demand for beautifully-produced 'patents of nobility' that were so much a part of every conquistador's quest for respectability. On the religious side, the Church benefited from the newly-created wealth via substantial be [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Pharmacopoea Bruxellensis senatûs authoritate munita. Editio altera.Brussels, Widow Foppens, (approbation: 1739). 8vo. With two engraved tables identifying alchemical symbols and measurements. Contemporary calf, gold-tooled spine.

      Anet (1 copy); Blake, p. 348; Daems & Vandewiele, p. 81 (1 copy); STCV (2 copies); Wellcome IV, p. 357. Rare fourth edition of the Brussels pharmacopoeia which is a word-for-word reprint of the third edition of 1702, which with the exception of a few small changes, was a re-issue of the second edition of 1671. Brussels had begun discussing plans to establish a Collegium Medicum ca. 1605, but failed to do so. A 1636 plague gave city magistrates the impetus to compile a pharmacopoeia, however, and they commissioned four leading city physicians (Joannes Jocquet, Paulus de Hullegarde, Ludovicus Fabri and Joannes De Lau, not mentioned on the title-page, but acknowledged by name in the preliminaries) to compile the present Brussels pharmacopoeia, which appeared in 1641. No apothecaries were officially consulted in the compilation of the Brussels pharmacopoeia, reflecting the growing status of physicians and declining status of apothecaries. Amsterdam had produced the first official pharmacopoeia in the Low Countries in 1636, based in part on Valerius, but the Brussels physicians chose to take the 1638 Paris Codex medicamentarius Parisiensis as their principal model. With 1793 owner's inscription. Binding heavily worn and back hinge cracked. Lacking the frontispiece and with some spotting throughout and small waterstain in the outer margin of pp. 131-135; nonetheless a good copy.

The total work contains 3 frontispieces, a portrait, 5 maps and 138 engravings with ca. 800 illustrations on them. All of the frontispieces, maps, engravings, vignettes and capital letters are beautifully handcoloured and heightened with gold by the uncrowned master of the late 17th century Dutch colourists, Dirk Jansz. van Santen. Van Santen was an unsurpassed artist and made beautiful pieces of art out of numerous book illustrations. Typical for his colouring is the abundant use of gold and the use of vivid colours for both the borders and the engravings and maps itself. On the 11th of February 1982, prof. H. de la Fontaine Verwey, who thoroughly explored Van Santen’s oeuvre, inspected this Bible, and certified that the colouring is undoubtedly by the hand of Van Santen. The work has not been for sale before. For generations it has been the property of a private family in Haarlem and the last 30 years it has been in the hands of a private collector. An exceptionally beautiful copy. What makes it even more exclusive is the fact that the engravings by De Hooghe, although very appreciated, were almost never coloured. This was due to the numerous details and the almost impressionistic design of his engravings which made it almost impossible for the colourists to colour the prints without creating chaos. However, Van Santen was able to give even the prints by De Hooghe extra quality and the splendid colouring proves his unmistakable expertise.)2 werken in 1 band, Bijbel: (titelprent, 2, portret, 15) 278, 112, 70, (titelprent met verklaring) 132 folia.

Van Santen was een weergaloos artiest en maakte van talloze prenten en boekillustraties prachtige kunststukken. Kenmerkend voor zijn kleuring is de rijkelijke toepassing van goudverf en het gebruik van levendige kleuren voor zowel de randen als de gravures en kaarten zelf. Op 11 februari 1982 heeft prof. H. de la Fontaine Verwey, die het werk van Van Santen uitgebreid heeft bestudeerd, deze Bijbel geinspecteerd en vastgesteld dat de kleuring van de prenten zonder twijfel van de hand van Van Santen is. Het werk is tot op heden niet in de openbare verkoop geweest, en was generaties lang in bezit van een particuliere familie in Haarlem en de laatste 30 jaar is het in het bezit geweest van een eveneens particuliere verzamelaar. Een uitzonderlijk fraai exemplaar en wat het nog exclusiever maakt, is dat de gravures van De Hooghe, hoewel zeer geliefd, vrijwel nooit ingekleurd werden. Dit vanwege de vele details en de haast impressionistische vormgeving van zijn prenten, welke het voor de kleurders bijna onmogelijk maakte om de prenten te kleuren zonder een chaos te creëren.

      Artist: Homann Johann Babtiste (d) ; issued in: Nuremberg; date: (d)1702 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 74 x 54; - description: map of the area around Milan; - vita of the artist: Johann Babtiste Homann (1664-1724), Nuremberg, was born in Oberkammlach, the Electorate of Bavaria. Although educated at a Jesuit school, and preparing for an ecclesiastical career, he eventually converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house.Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as a recommendation for potential customers.In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, which was in business until 1848. The company was known as Homann Erben, Homanniani Heredes, or Heritiers de Homann abroad.

Queste pagine manoscritte, in gran parte in aggiunta alla fine del testo già pubblicato, anche quando intercalate riportano novità testuali che verranno inserite nelle edizioni posteriori a questa nostra del 1702.François Maximilien Misson (1650 - 1722) fu un prolifero scrittore e viaggiatore francese.In seguito alla revoca dell'editto di Nantes, avvenuta con l'editto di Fontainebleau, le sue cariche al Parlamento di Parigi vennero revocate così come gli furono confiscati i beni. Più tardi lasciò il paese natio preferendo una regione riformata d'Europa dove cercò di ricostruirsi una posizione economica e sociale. Ottenne la carica di precettore del conte di Arran, figlio del Duca di Ormond. Il giovane nobile e Misson, iniziano a visitare l'Italia durante il tour di formazione sul continente (1687); in questi anni, Maximilien, scrisse Nouveau Voyage d'Italie, stampato nel 1691 e tradotto in tre lingue: inglese, tedesco e olandese, diventando così il best seller della letteratura di viaggio (per decenni fu tra le più consultate guide per viaggiatori, specialmente nel XVIII secolo). Il testo, redatto in forma epistolare dà una taglio familiare all'opera, descrivendo solo ciò che l'autore aveva potuto osservare in forma concisa, darà una nuova svolta all'epopea dei diaristi, sarà da modello per la guidistica e per le relazioni di viaggio del primo Settecento. Attraverso le lettere racconta un Gran Tour ante litteram, vuole scoprire le tracce imperfette della Roma dei Cesari operando un continuo confronto tra ciò che egli vede e le descrizioni dei testi classici. Misson si trova in Toscana nel maggio del 1688 provenendo da Roma e proseguendo per Bologna. Attraversa la via Emilia, giunge a Siena e poi visita Pisa, Livorno, Lucca, Pistoia, Firenze (Maggio 1688), dedicando una lettera alla provincia ed una alla capitale. Ancora di queste città parlerà poi nel volume Memorie per i viaggiatori, ricco di nuovi consigli ed indicazioni. Ottimo esemplare fresco e ben inchiostrato. Nel vol. 4 la numerazione salta da pag. 365 manoscritta a pag. 375 a stampa. Alcune malnumerazioni. La collazione di altre copie censite varia nel numero delle tavole.

        Arte de la lengua Moxa, con su vocabulario, y cathecismo (and:) Cathecismo menor en lengua Española, y Moxa.

      [Lima] Joseph de Contreras [1702]. - 12mo.[16] + 142 + [22]p + pp163-202 + [1]f index. Roman letter. Contemporary vellum; title calligraphically lettered in ink on spine; remains of ties; edge of back cover rubbed. The earliest grammar, dictionary, and catechism of the Moxo Indians of Upper Peru, and the first work on this indigenous language of the Americas. Moxo is related to the Arawak family of languages which includes Taino, spoken by the Caribbean Indian aborigines. The Spanish–Moxo Catechism is separately paginated in the form of a supplement. The author, Pedro Marbán (1647-1713), a Jesuit missionary from Seville, travelled to Peru in 1675 to devote his final years to converting the Moxo Indians, whose language he had learnt to master. The tribe inhabits the lowlands of Beni in south-eastern Bolivia, where Moxo is still spoken. The handsome Lima imprint remained the unique, authoritative work on the Moxo language for the following two centuries. The preliminaries are dated:1701, the Catechism:1702. The book was re-edited by Julius Platzmann in 1894. An exceptionally fresh, crisp copy in its original binding.

        Antique Print-AFRICA-SOUTH AMERICA-CARIBBEAN-Scherer-1702

      - Antique print, titled: 'Africae dei Mater Alicubi Nota & Haec Ibidem Benefica.' - Scarce map of Africa, most of South America, Caribbean and south of Europe, by H. Scherer, printed in ca. 1702 (dated 1699) for Scherer's 'Atlas Novus' (1702-1710). While this map is primarily focused on Africa, it also covers most of Europe, the Arabian Peninsula, the South Atlantic and most of Brazil and the Caribbean Islands. The Christian theme of this map of Africa is boldly presented in the graphic illustration of a Jesuit and a native African kneeling before the Virgin Mary and Jesus. The map itself is a fine example of the state of geographic knowledge (or lack thereof) at the beginning of the 18th century. Heinrich Scherer was a professor of mathematics in Munich and a devout Jesuit. Engraving / etching with hand colouring on hand laid (verge) paper. Description: Source unknown, to be determined.Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Heinrich Scherer' after an anonymous artist. Heinrich Scherer (1628-1704) was a Professor of Hebrew, Mathematics and Ethics at the University of Dillingen until about 1680. Thereafter he obtained important positions as Official Tutor to the Royal Princes of Mantua and Bavaria. It was during his time in Munich as Tutor to the Princely house of Bavaria that his lifetime’s work as a cartographer received acclaim and recognition. Scherer’s world atlas, the Atlas Novus, first published in Munich between 1702 and 1710 and reissued in a second edition between 1730 and 1737, forms a singularly unusual, almost revolutionary work in terms of the development of European mapmaking at the beginning of the 18th Century. Condition: Very good, given age. Original folds as issued. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully. Storage location: BG-Iscra-B12-42 The overall size is ca. 15.9 x 10.7 inch. The image size is ca. 13.9 x 9.1 inch. The overall size is ca. 40.5 x 27.3 cm. The image size is ca. 35.4 x 23 cm.

      Oxford: Printed at the Theater, 1702-1704. First Edition. Leatherbound. Very good. 3 vols.: xxiii, 557; [16], 581; [22], 603, [22] p. 39 cm.

Full leather bindings with raised bands and gilt-decorated panels. Gilt and blank impressing to boards. All edges red.

Vol. I has a few small spots in margins, and a small ink notation on p. 7. Bottom corner chipped on rear free endpaper in vol. II. Vol. III has mark on front cover, small mark on text block edge, slightly rough edge to last pages, and some soiling to margins in rear index pages. English statesman and historian Edward Hyde, Earl of Clarendon (1609 1674) was always loyal to his king, becoming a key figure for the Royalist cause and serving as Chancellor of the Exchequer after the Restoration in 1660. This three-volume detailed account was the most influential contemporary history of the English Civil War. The original publication of the History was part of a publishing war between supporters of the rival Roundheads and Cavaliers. The publication of the Roundhead Edmund Ludlow's Memoirs in 1698-1699 was a sensational success and led to a spate of Roundhead Civil War memoirs. In 1701 the Tories began a counter-attack by printing the Cavalier memoirs of Sir Philip Warwick, followed in the next year by the first volume of Clarendon's History and the memoirs of Sir Thomas Herbert, Gentleman of the Bedchamber to Charles I. Clarendon wrote portions of this work at different times with different objects. He wrote his original History between 1646 and 1648, but only recorded events to March 1644. Perhaps he hoped that his interpretation of recent errors would instruct the king or his son in the future.After being banished from England during the Commonwealth, he wrote his autobiographical Life between 1668 and 1670. He then revised the History in 1671 by incorporating the Life into it and writing new sections covering events after March 1644. It was his sons who offered the original manuscript to Oxford. After much editorial correction, the three-part work was published beginning in 1702.

The series of miscellanies of which these three volumes form a part was the most influential of its era, and served as a model for later anthologies. The publisher Jacob Tonson and the then Poet Laureate John Dryden joined forces in 1684 to create this popular collection of short, previously unpublished verses by several writers. Dryden's role was partly to contribute, partly to solicit contributions, and partly to edit and assist contributors. Although Dryden's own works, such as Mac Flecknoe and Absolom & Achitophel, are included in these volumes, the many translations of classical authors such as Ovid, Horace, and Virgil helped to foster a taste for verse translations of the classics. Note the poem "Syphilus" at the end of vol. III: originally written by the Italian physician Girolamo Fracastoro in 1530, it was translated from Latin to English by Nahum Tate.

        Antique Print-WORLD MAP-Scherer-c. 1702

      - Antique print, titled: 'Typus Totius Orbis Terraquei Geographice Delineatus, Et Ad Usum Globo Materiali Superinducendus' - Beautiful example of Scherer's map of the World, configured in 12 globe gores. California is shown as an island. Fascinating Northwest Passage treatment. Excellent detail in Australia and a nice bit of New Zealand shown, along with a curious oversized Tierra Del Fuego. Engraving / etching with hand colouring on hand laid paper. Description: Source unknown, to be determined.Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Heinrich Scherer' after an anonymous artist. Heinrich Scherer (1628-1704) was a Professor of Hebrew, Mathematics and Ethics at the University of Dillingen until about 1680. Thereafter he obtained important positions as Official Tutor to the Royal Princes of Mantua and Bavaria. It was during his time in Munich as Tutor to the Princely house of Bavaria that his lifetime’s work as a cartographer received acclaim and recognition. Scherer’s world atlas, the Atlas Novus, first published in Munich between 1702 and 1710 and reissued in a second edition between 1730 and 1737, forms a singularly unusual, almost revolutionary work in terms of the development of European mapmaking at the beginning of the 18th Century. Condition: Good, given age. A few tiny unobtrusive spots. Light diagonal crease on the right. Original folds as issued. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling.

        Lexicon graeco-latinum in Novum Domini Nostri Jesu Christi Testamentum : nominum tam propriorum quam appellativorum significatus atque analysin complexum. Editio correctior

      Jo. Fried. Gleditschi, Lipsiae (Leipzig) 1702 - 12mo (7 1/4 x 5"). [28], 1752 columns (876pp), [400]pp. Contemporary full vellum with handwritten title to spine. Title page in red and black lettering. Decorative head-, tailpieces and initials. Originally published in Herborn in 1619, Georg Pasor's koine Greek* and Latin dictionary of the New Testament is, according to Adolf Deissmann in his "Light from the Ancient East" (1927), "the first lexicon to the New Testament."However, Deissman's claim has recently come under some criticism by John Lee, who shows (in his "History of New Testament Lexicography" (2003) that Pasor's work relies heavily on the work of his predecessors (especially Stephanus). Pasor does, however, seem to be the first NT lexicographer to divide his entries into senses, and his work dominated the field of NT lexicography throughout the 17th century. (For more information, see: J. William Johnston's "The Use of PAS in the New Testament" (2004)).Binding age-toned, partly darkened and soiled. Ex-library bookplate on inside of front cover. Title page detached but present. Contemporary previous owner's inscription dated 1713 at lower margin of title page (not affecting lettering). Minor and sporadic foxing throughout. Text in Latin and Greek. Binding in overall good-, interior in good to very good condition. About the author: Georg Pasor (1570-1637) was a philologist and private teacher, who later became professor of Greek and Hebrew at the university of Herborn, and in 1626, professor of Greek at the university of Franeker. * Before Alexander the Great, the Greek language was an assortment of localized dialects. Alexander wanted a Greek language common to all peoples. It was called 'koine' or common. By the time the New Testament was written (mid to late 1st century A.D.) koine Greek had become the common language in Israel. Koine Greek became more popular in Rome than Latin. One reason was Rome's acceptance of all cult religions as long as the Emperor was worshipped as well. One of the titles of the Emperor was the koine word, "kurios," which means "Lord." It was a divine title of the emperor! It was the main word used by the LXX (Septuagint) translators of the Old Testament when they translated the Hebrew word YHVH. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
