"The tale of Francoise Athenais, Marquise de Montespan, the witty and beautiful mistress of King Louis XIV. Madame de Montespan reigned as the King's Favorite for over a decade and bore the sovereign seven children. But she was also an arrogant and priggish aristocrat who did not take well to her royal lover's wandering eye falling upon younger and more attractive competitors for the King's affections. Madame de Montespan, once she had fallen out of favor with the libidinous King, is believed to have taken matters into her own hands to remove the obstacles to her desires, that of a triumphant return to the royal boudoir, through the use of magical love philtres and, eventually, poisons."

Fragments of Philo Judaeus by Philo( Book )

24 editions published between 1886 and 2012 in English and Latin and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The scholar and philosopher Philo Judaeus born around 25 BCE in Alexandria, blended his knowledge of Jewish law and scripture with his command of Greek philosophy in his influential works, ensuring that he became a subject of intellectual enquiry in his own right. However, James Rendel Harris (1852-1941), a biblical scholar, palaeographer and Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge, thought Philo too 'slenderly prized' in Britain. Harris intended this collection, published in 1886, to bring together surviving fragments of Philo's work. In a detailed introduction, he explains the complicated tasks involved in identifying and classifying these ancient texts, and also points out that this volume is intended to provide a basis for future research on Philo. The fragments are presented in their original Greek, most of them accompanied by a Latin translation. Harris provides notes throughout, and the book continues to offer a valuable resource for biblical and philosophical scholarship

Testimonies by J. Rendel Harris( Book )

29 editions published between 1916 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this two-volume work, J. Rendel Harris (1852-1941) fundamentally shaped Biblical scholarship in the twentieth century, arguing for the existence of a 'first known treatise on Christian theology', antedating the New Testament. A palaeographer, Harris examined recurring textual corruptions of Old Testament passages in early Christian writers and surmised an underlying collection, which he called the 'Testimony Book'. The book, Harris believed, collected Biblical testimonia - passages prophesying Christ - in order to prove the legitimacy of the new Christian faith. These arguments against Judaic theology marked, in Harris's opinion, the beginnings of the Christian written tradition. Volume 1 (1916) lays the groundwork for Harris's argument by examining the use of testimonia in early Christian writers like Cyprian and Gregory of Nyssa. 'The starting point of the modern study of the use of the Old Testament in the New', this is a work of enduring importance to religion scholars
