Angelo Poliziano's Lamia text, translation, and introductory studies by Angelo Poliziano( )
9 editions published in 2010 in English and Latin and held by 1,145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1492, Angelo Poliziano published his Lamia, a praelectio, or opening oration to a course he would teach that academic year on Aristotles Prior Analytics at the Florentine university. Having heard murmurings that he was not philosopher enough to teach the Aristotelian text, Poliziano strikes back, offering in effect a fable-tinted history of philosophy even as he strikes back at his presumed detractors. More than a repudiation of local gossip, the text, framed by fables, represents a rethinking of the mission of philosophy. This volume offers the first English translation, an edition of the Latin text, and four studies that set this rich example of humanist Latin writing in context
Silvae by Angelo Poliziano( Book )

"Angelo Poliziano (1454-1494) was one of the great scholar-poets of the Renaissance and a leading figure in the circle of Lorenzo de'Medici "il Magnifico" in Florence. His "Silvae" are poetical introductions to his courses in literature at the University of Florence, written in Latin hexameters They not only contain some of the finest Latin poetry of the Renaissance, but also afford unique insight into the poetical credo of a brilliant scholar as he considers the works of his Greek and Latin predecessors as well as of his contemporaries writing in Italian."

The History of Herodian (born c. A.D. 178-179) covers a period of the Roman empire from the death of the emperor Marcus Aurelius (A.D. 180) to the accession of Gordian III (A.D. 238), half a century of turbulence, in which we can see the onset of the revolution which, in the words of Gibbon, "will ever be remembered, and is still felt by the nations of the earth". In these years, a succession of frontier crises and a disastrous lack of economic planning established a pattern of military coups and increasingly cultural pluralism that was to plague the Roman empire in its decline. Of this revolutionary epoch we know all too little. The selection of chance has destroyed all but a handful of the literary sources that deal with the immediate post-Antonine scene. Herodian's work is one of the few that have survived. It also happens to be the only contemporary work of history that has come down to us completely intact. Of the author himself we know virtually nothing, except that he served in some official capacity in the empire of which he wrote. The History, which is written in Greek, was apparently produced for the benefit of people in the Greek-speaking half of the Roman empire. It has many defects and failings. It betrays the faults of an age when truth was distorted by rhetoric and stereotypes were a substitute for sound reason. But, for all that, it is an essential document for any who would try to understand the nature of the Roman empire in an era of rapidly changing social and political institutions
