On the donation of Constantine by Lorenzo Valla( Book )
142 editions published between 1506 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,508 libraries worldwide
"Lorenzo Valla (1407-1457) was the most important theorist of the humanist movement. He wrote a major work on Latin style, On Elegance in the Latin Language, which became a battle-standard in the struggle for the reform of Latin across Europe, and Dialectical Disputations, a wide-ranging attack on scholastic logic. His most famous work is On the Donation of Constantine, an oration in which Valla uses new philological methods to attack the authenticity of the most important document justifying the papacy's claims to temporal rule. It appears here in a new translation with introduction and notes by G.W. Bowersock, based on the critical text of Wolfram Setz (1976). This volume also includes a text and translation of the Constitutum Constantini, commonly known as the Donation of Constantine."--Jacket

In defense of common sense : Lorenzo Valla's humanist critique of scholastic philosophy by Lodi Nauta( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
"One of the leading humanists of Quattrocento Italy, Lorenzo Valla (ca. 1406-1457) has been praised as a brilliant debunker of medieval scholastic philosophy. In this book Lodi Nauta seeks a more balanced assessment, presenting us with the first comprehensive analysis of the humanist's attempt at radical reform of Aristotelian scholasticism." "This study examines Valla's attack on major tenets of Aristotelian metaphysics, showing how Valla employed common sense and linguistic usage as his guides. It then explicates Valla's critique of Aristotelian psychology and natural philosophy and discusses his moral and religious views, including Valla's notorious identification of Christian beatitude with Epicurean pleasure and his daring views on the Trinity. Finally, it takes up Valla's humanist dialectic, which seeks to transform logic into a practical tool measured by persuasiveness and effectiveness." "Nauta firmly places Valla's arguments and ideas within the contexts of ancient and medieval philosophical traditions as well as renewed interest in ancient rhetoric in the Renaissance. He also demonstrates the relevance of Valla's conviction that the philosophical problems of the scholastics are rooted in a misunderstanding of language. Combining philosophical exegesis and historical scholarship, this book offers a new approach to a major Renaissance thinker."--Jacket
Correspondence by Lorenzo Valla( Book )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and Latin and held by 13 libraries worldwide
Lorenzo Valla (1406-1457) was the leading philologist of the first half of the fifteenth century, as well as a philosopher, theologian, and translator. His extant Latin letters are fewer than those of many of his contemporaries, since he never collected or consciously preserved them. For that reason they afford a direct and unguarded window into the working life of the most passionate, difficult, and interesting of the Italian humanists. They show him as a teacher and secretary, but above all as a writer who continually worked and reworked his major contributions to dialectic and philology, notably his masterpiece on the Elegances of the Latin Language, a central text of the Renaissance. More plentiful are the letters of others to him, which place him at the center of a humanist network that extended from Venice to Naples. They also shed light on the furious polemics in which he involved himself. These letters, including one previously unpublished, are now edited for the first time alongside Valla's own correspondence
Johannes Baptista Rexius : Ilias Homeri teutsch : mit synoptischem Abdruck der "Ilias"-Übertragung Lorenzo Vallas by Homer( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in German and Latin and held by 10 libraries worldwide
HauptbeschreibungHomers 'Ilias' ist für die europäische Kulturgeschichte von überragender Bedeutung. Die 'Ilias Homeri teutsch' des Johannes Baptista Rexius (1584) ist die früheste vollständige Übertragung dieses homerischen Epos in deutscher Sprache. Damit steht dieses Werk am Beginn einer Tradition deutscher Homerübersetzungen, die in der noch heute unverändert zum Kanon der deutschen literarischen Bildung gehörenden Hexameter-Übersetzung des Johannes Voß gipfelt. Die 'Ilias Homeri teutsch' wird hier erstmals vollständig und kritisch ediert und ihrer Übersetzungsvorlage, der lateinischen 'Ili
