Strasburg - Theodosius Rihel 1590 - The Works of Hegesippus and Josephus bound in one volume. Rebound in cloth. This book contains the works of Hegesippus and Josephus. The text of these works are in German. Hegesippus lacks all after folio 84, and Josephus lacks all before folio 73. With ink annotations throughout. Saint Hegesippus, c. 110 c. 180 AD, was a Christian chronicler of the early Church who may have been a Jewish convert and certainly wrote against heresies of the Gnostics and of Marcion. Hegesippus' works are now entirely lost, save eight passages concerning Church history quoted by Eusebius, who tells us that he wrote Hypomnemata in five books, in the simplest style concerning the tradition of the Apostolic preaching. St. Hegesippus appealed principally to tradition as embodied in the teaching which had been handed down through the succession of bishops, thus providing for Eusebius information about the earliest bishops that otherwise would have been lost. The American theologian Robert M. Price has recently questioned the historical authenticity of Hegesippus, suspecting that 'He-gesippus' may be a garbled version of 'Josephus'. Josephus, 37 c. 100AD, also known as Yosef Ben Matityahu and after he became a Roman citizen, as Titus Flavius Josephus, was a first-century Jewish historian and apologist of priestly and royal ancestry who survived and recorded the destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70. His works give an important insight into first-century Judaism. Josephus was an important apologist in the Roman world for the Jewish people and culture, particularly at a time of conflict and tension. He always remained, in his own eyes, a loyal and law-observant Jew. He went out of his way both to commend Judaism to educated Gentiles, and to insist on its compatibility with cultured Graeco-Roman thought. He constantly contended for the antiquity of Jewish culture, presenting its people as civilised, devout and philosophical. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is very mild wear to the extremities, including bumping and rubbing. Internally the pages have some browning, withhandling marks throughout. The pages present of Hegesippus have browned watermarks, that do not affect visibility of the text. There are occasional browned watermarks throughout Josephus, most prominent between pages 99-102 and from 491 through to the Register. Many of the pages from Hegesippus have repairsto the bottom margins, that do not affect the text. There are repairs to folio 84 of closed tears, obscuring text. The fourth page from the rear of the text has repairs to closed tears that does not affect the text. There are copious inkannotations throughout. A label has been previouslypartially removed from the front pastedown. Overall the condition is very good, excepting the missing pages. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
