Spiritualia by Desiderius Erasmus( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The five pieces in this volume are among the twenty selected for inclusion in volumes 66-70 of the Collected Works of Erasmus, the series of spiritualia and pastoralia. Like many of the other works in this series, they represent an Erasmus that, despite the recent growth of interest in him, has remained largely unfamiliar - the Erasmus of the works 'pertaining to pietas.' As Professor O'Malley's introduction makes clear, Erasmian pietas assumes an intrinsic relationship among spirituality, theology, and ministry, and the five works in volume 70 characteristically develop the implications of that relationship. Professor O'Malley provides background and context for each of the selections, and shows how over the course of the years Erasmus gives pietas a theological base and centre by grounding it ever more firmly in the mystery of Christ's death and resurrection.Volume 70 includes A Short Debate Concerning the Distress, Alarm and Sorrow of Jesus; A Sermon on the Immense Mercy of God; On Praying to God; An Explanation of the Apostles' Creed; and Preparing for Death
Silvae by Angelo Poliziano( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."

Poems by Michele Marullo Tarcaniota( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and Latin and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michael Marullus (c. 1453/4{u2013}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{u2019}Medici. Among Marullus{u2019} 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{u2019}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{u2019}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{u2019}s Romola, where he is depicted as a confirmed pagan. This edition contains Marullus{u2019} complete Latin poetry. All of these works appear in English translation for the first time."--Publisher's description

16 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The extraordinarily diverse oeuvre of Juan Luis Vives, marked by great erudition and originality, still remains very little known in the English-speaking world. This collection of essays considers his life and the influence of his writings, and examines some of his chief works. These include his books on the education of women and on the relief of the poor, his numerous political writings, and his huge encyclopedic treatise, De disciplinis, a comprehensive critical and systematic review of universal learning and the state of the academic disciplines at the beginning of the sixteenth century

On assistance to the poor by Juan Luis Vives( Book )

7 editions published in 2002 in 3 languages and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'I wish we were able to eliminate poverty completely in this city.' Those words echo a sentiment that could have been written yesterday, but represent the feelings of Juan Luis Vives, a Spanish humanist living in Bruges in 1526. The urban problems of sixteenth-century Bruges seem very familiar to the modern reader: poverty, overcrowding, crime, the problems of the mentally ill, and the issue of the responsibility of government for the care of the poor. Published in 1526, On Assistance to the Poor was Vives's effort to bring forward these questions to the City Council of Bruges, and have them addressed by local government. His distinctive development of a single integrated system out of the several practices already in use in Northern Europe presaged the English Poor Laws of 1601 and later laws in the New World." "This edition, originally published in 1971 with an introduction, translation, and commentary by Alice Tobriner, is a valuable primary source in Renaissance social history."--Jacket

The "Adages" of Erasmus; a study with translations by Desiderius Erasmus( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in Spanish and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Erasmus' Adages is a collection of 4151 ancient proverbs, each accompanied by a commentary explaining its history and possible uses. Though most of these commentaries are very short, some just a few lines of scholarly explication, others are lengthy essays on social and political topics. The most famous of these is 'War is sweet to those who have not tried it, ' a major anti-war tract. Many of the proverbs have passed into modern usage ('Know thyself, ' 'To give someone the finger, ' 'Well begun is half done'), some even retaining their Latin form (Deus ex machina). And a few, as it turns out, were created by Erasmus himself through occasional misinterpretations of the ancient sources ('Pandora's box, ' 'To call a spade a spade'). The massive compendium, characterized by wit, elegance, seriousness, and occasional bursts of satire, was among the most learned and widely circulated of Latin books during the early modern period. This annotated selection of 116 proverbs, which includes all the longer essays, is based on the translation in the Collected Works of Erasmus."--Jacket
