Poems by Michele Marullo Tarcaniota( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and Latin and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michael Marullus (c. 1453/4-1500), born in Greece, began life as a mercenary soldier but became a prominent Neo-Latin poet and scholar who worked in Florence and Naples. He married the beautiful and learned Alessandra Scala, daughter of the humanist Bartolomeo Scala, chancellor of Florence, and his Epigrams bring alive the circle of Lorenzo di Pierfrancesco de'Medici. Among Marullus' influences were ancient Greek texts such as the Homeric and Orphic hymns, the Corpus Hermeticum, the hymns of Proclus, Cleanthes, and Callimachus, and Julian the Apostate's Hymn to the Sun. Marullus was particularly important, however, as one of the first Renaissance poets to imitate the works of Lucretius, and one witness reported that, after his death by drowning, a copy of the Roman poet's works was found in his saddlebag. Later poets imitated him in vernacular love poetry, especially Ronsard; he even appears as a shadowy figure in the pages of George Eliot's Romola, where he is depicted as a confirmed pagan. This edition contains Marullus' complete Latin poetry. All of these works appear in English translation for the first time."--Publisher's description

De institutione feminae Christianae by Juan Luis Vives( Book )

in English and Latin and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vives' tract on the eduction of women, De Institutione Feminae Christianae (1524, revised 1538) became a model for conduct books in various Protestant traditions and as such has always been of interest to historians of education. However, the treatise also made a very important contribution to the querelle des femmes of its time and has consequently generated much interest among modern historians of women and gender. It consists of 3 books, one for each stage of woman's life - maidenhood, marriage and widowhood. The only English translation of the text on offer till now was the inaccurate and free version of Richard Hyrde (a friend of Thomas More), published early in the 10th century by Foster Watson, but now unavailable. This edition offers a new Latin text with a double apparatus and a facing-page English translation with notes, with an introduction to the edition and the text. Volume I (1996) contains Book I, volume 2 covers Books II-III

The correspondence of Erasmus by Desiderius Erasmus( )

8 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume 18 in the Collected Works of Erasmus series covers the period from 1 April 1531 to 30 March 1532. The most persistent theme in the letters is the fear, to which Erasmus had long been prey, that the religious strife in Germany and Switzerland would eventually lead to armed conflict. His Catholic and Evangelical critics continued to annoy him. In June 1531 Erasmus published his final apologia against Alberto Pio, who had accused him of being the source of the Lutheran heresy. Though Erasmus' public controversy with the Strasbourg theologians had come to an end in 1530, he wrote a long letter to Martin Bucer emphasizing his doctrinal differences with the Strasbourgers and his low estimate of their moral character. Erasmus' financial affairs also figure prominently in the letters between him and his friend, the banker Erasmus Schets. The letters between them are testimony to his impatience with people who owed him money, his frequent inability to understand the details of his own finances, and his quickness to assume that people he trusted were cheating him.

Controversies : Apologia adversus articulos aliquot per monachos quosdam in Hispaniis exhibitos ; Responsio adversus Febricitantis cuiusdam libellum ; Epistola ad quosdam impudentissimos Gracculos by Desiderius Erasmus( )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite having enemies in the powerful Spanish religious orders, and being warned of the controversies that would arise, Erasmus published the fourth edition of his New Testament in 1527, resulting in a major crisis for Erasmianism in Spain. This period is marked by a bitter battle between Erasmus and the conservative elements in Spain, involving behind-the-scenes maneuvering, where it was impossible to distinguish friend from foe. Following this tension, a confrontation culminated in the Valladolid conference where enemies of Erasmus were obliged to come forward, and where, following these events, Erasmus himself was forced to publically respond to the charges brought against him. The three texts in the present volume: An Apologia of Desiderius Erasmus of Rotterdam Against a Number of Articles Presented by Certain Monks in Spain; The Answer of Desiderius Erasmus to the Pamphlet of a Certain Fever-ridden Individual; and, Letter to Certain Highly Impudent Jackdaws were written in response to his critics

Neo-Latin and the humanities : essays in honour of Charles E. Fantazzi( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In their range and breadth, the essays in this collection illustrate the cultural force of Neo-Latin in Early Modern Europe. Neo-Latin was a vehicle for the translation of other languages; it united people across boundaries of ethnicity and nation; it carried with it the legacy of classical Latinity; it provided insight into religious doctrine; it shaped the development of early modern vernaculars; and, not least, it offered both style and substance to the evolving practice of Renaissance literary and textual criticism. To the degree that the humanities recognize their roots in the fifteenth-century studia humanitatis � the fields of grammar, rhetoric, history, poetry, and moral philosophy � they are also conscious of how these fields flourish in the domain of Latin culture.--
