Most widely held works by James W Halporn
The meters of Greek and Latin poetry by James Werner Halporn( Book )

43 editions published between 1963 and 1994 in English and held by 1,030 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Institutions of divine and secular learning ; and, On the soul by Cassiodorus( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As a minister of the ostrogothic regime in the time of Theoderic, Cassiodorus had as brilliant a political career as any Roman of the late empire. Around 538 CE, on the eve of the Byzantine reconquest of Italy, he published a collection of his state letters under the title of Variae (TTH 12), and disappeared from the public record. Half a century later, dying at his country estate in Calabria, he left behind the exemplars for another world of texts: that of the Christian universe of Scripture, now encompassing the Seven Liberal Arts. The grand plan of this new dispensation is contained in the two books of his Institutions of Divine and Secular Learning, a work which would be excerpted and copied in monasteries throughout the Latin Middle Ages. The Institutions appears here in the first new English translation in more than fifty years, with explanatory notes and a historical and interpretative introduction that takes full account of recent scholarship. The treatise On the Soul, which was originally published as the thirteenth book of the Variae, is included as an appendix. For a long while mistakenly revered as a saviour of classical civilization, in recent times more often dismissed as an anachronism, Cassiodorus emerges from this edition of the Institutions as an exceptional but nonetheless representative exponent of the learned Christian culture of later Latin Antiquity. The work will be of interest to historians of the late Roman empire and the early Christian church, medievalists, and students of the classical tradition."--Jacket

De l'âme by Cassiodore( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in French and Latin and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Interrogé par un groupe d'amis sur la nature et les pouvoirs de l'âme, Cassiodore (v. 490 - v. 587), qui fut un temps haut fonctionnaire palatin au service du roi ostrogoth Théodoric le Grand et de ses successeurs, rédigea De l'âme vers 538. Récemment converti, il prend parti sur la question de l'âme, un des lieux de controverse entre philosophie païenne et réflexion chrétienne. En dix-huit chapitres se concluant par une prière, il affirme ainsi sa foi neuve tout en réassumant sa culture classique. Il s'attache à faire apparaître l'âme comme l'instrument et le milieu qui permettent à l'homme d'abord de parvenir à sa propre connaissance et à celle du monde, révélateurs l'un et l'autre de la puissance et de la bonté de Dieu, puis de se préparer à atteindre la condition béatifi que. À partir d'emprunts aussi bien sacrés que profanes, auxquels les citations scripturaires servent de ciment, Cassiodore s'inscrit dans la tradition latine des traités sur l'âme initiée par Tertullien, et compose une oeuvre appelée à connaître une immense postérité."--
