Diálogos by Juan Luis Vives( file )
286 editions published between 1539 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 2,316 libraries worldwide
Entre las diversas posibilidades presentadas optamos por la publicación de los Diálogos (Linguae latinae exercitatio), y esto por varias razones: la primera, por ser la obra mas valenciana de Vives; en ella es donde afloran de forma emocionada los recuerdos infantiles ya lejanos: de forma especial para sus hermanas por el sufrimiento de tantos años, para sus amigos (Honorato Juan, la Marqueza de Zenete, Ángela Zabata), para su querida ciudad (las calles, las iglesias, las escuelas donde aprendió las primeras letras, la casa donde nació, el mercado de la fruta y verduras, los juegos de la pelota, etcétera); todo debe resultar emotivo para nuestro autor, ya en la madurez, enfermo y casi alas puertas de la muerte
The education of a Christian woman a sixteenth-century manual by Juan Luis Vives( file )
13 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 1,668 libraries worldwide
"From meetings and conversation with men, love affairs arise. In the midst of pleasures, banquets, dances, laughter, and self-indulgence, Venus and her son Cupid reign supreme. ... Poor young girl, if you emerge from these encounters a captive prey! How much better it would have been to remain at home or to have broken a leg of the body rather than of the mind!" So wrote the sixteenth-century Spanish humanist Juan Luis Vives in a famous work dedicated to Henry VIII's daughter, Princess Mary, but intended for a wider audience interested in the education of women. Praised by Erasmus

Introduction to wisdom; a Renaissance textbook by Juan Luis Vives( Book )
64 editions published between 1540 and 1968 in 5 languages and held by 1,015 libraries worldwide
"English and American general historians, of the Tudor sixteenth century may acknowledge [Juan Lodovicus Vives] as an important humanist, but an aura of dismissal hangs heavy over the pages. Texts in the history of education refer to Vives in generous enough terms: a leader of educational theory, the 'Father of Modern Psychology, ' a major source of innovation in pedagogy from his own time through Herbert Spencer's. Yet his works themselves are available in but small proportion to the English reader."--The preface, l.v
The city of God by Augustine( Book )
14 editions published between 1610 and 1957 in English and held by 673 libraries worldwide
Saint Augustine is often regardarded as the most influential Christian thinker after Saint Paul, and City of God is his materpiece, a cast synthesis of religious and secular knowledge. It began as a reply to the charge that Christian otherworldiness was causing the decline of the Roman Empire. Augustine produced a wealth of evidence to prove that paganism bore within itself the seeds of its own destruction. Then he proceeded to his larger theme, a cosmic interpretation of in terms of the struggle between good and evilL the City of God in conflict with the Earthly City or the City of the Devil. This, the first serious attempt at a philosophy of history, was to have incalculable influence in forming the Western mind on the relations of church and state, and on the Christianʹs place in the temporal order. -- Description from (Dec. 10, 2012)
On assistance to the poor by Juan Luis Vives( Book )
84 editions published between 1532 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 463 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

De institutione feminae Christianae by Juan Luis Vives( Book )
61 editions published between 1524 and 1999 in 5 languages and held by 388 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

"As man amongst creatures, and the Church amongst men, and the Fathers in the Church, and S. Augustine amongst the Fathers, amongst the many pretious volumes, and in the rich store-house of his workes, his bookes of the City of God have a speciall preheminence. For Saint Augustine himselfe: He was a glorious light in his time,and one of the worthiest Champions that ever the Church had since the Apostles. For though he was but one of the foure Doctors of the Latine Church: yet fought he with foure of the fowlest heretikes, and cut off the heads of foure of the fowleft monsters that ever opprest the Church, namely the Arrians, the Manichees, the Denatists, and Pelagians, Such a Hercules was this holy Father that he feared not four together"--Book.
