Early Editions, Translations & Studies
(1450 - 1850)

-----------------------------

This page holds information about the printed editions, starting from the invention of printing, up until the arrival of the first modern critical editions. It was originally based on Migne 1. I have indicated whether I have checked personally the information with the edition itself. Naturally there are many I haven't looked at.

I've also included all items listed in COPAC on 8/8/2, up to and including 1600.  

Editions about which I know more than the catalogue entry are given separate linked pages.

Incunables

After the invention of printing, there was half a century of experiment. Books produced in this period (before 1500) are known as incunables, from the Latin in cunabula, in the cradle.

There are a number of these for Tertullian, all of the Apologeticum alone. According to the IISTC5, there are in fact only two unique editions - that printed by Benalius, and that by Scinzenzeler. Each of these does appear in a volume by itself.

The other editions listed are editions of the works of Lactantius, to which the Apologeticum appears as an appendix. (This continues a trend which is also visible in some of the late manuscripts of Lactantius, e.g. Balliol 79 which contains both also).4. The pages of the Apologeticum in these editions seems to be a direct print or rebinding of the unique editions. However they are listed here, and the extent to which these statements have been checked personally is indicated.

Pre-1493 : BENALIUS : ISTC no. it00117000. Hain 15443 : Apologeticus, Venice, Bernardinus Benalius. In folio. The volume is undated but has traditionally been assigned to 1483 (e.g. Migne), the date at which Benalius began printing. However there is no evidence for this.

Note that Norwich copy is online (see below) but is in fact a 1497 Lactantius, with the Benalius bound at the end. I have checked that the pages in it are identical to those in the Cambridge copy, and they are.

Other Notes I have seen this edition offered for sale at $1800.

A copy of this existed at the start of the 18th century which contained a collation of the now lost (or possibly unidentified) manuscript owned by Filippo Beroaldo.  It was held in the library of E.S.Cyprianus: cf. Bibliotheca Cyprianica...Editio auctior, Lipsiae (1733), p.9: "Tertulliani apologeticus castigatus notis MSS. ex codice Philippi Beroaldi.  Venetis per Benalium 1480". (Petitmengin 2004, p.81 and n.77).  It's current whereabouts are unknown.

Bibliography on Benalius Not checked:

1493 : SCINZENZELER : ISTC no. it00116900 : Apologeticus, printed Mediolani per Uldericum Scinzinzeler.   Listed in Illustrated Incunable Short Title Catalogue CD.   Printed Milan; Uldericus Scinzenzeler, 4th December 1493.  Format: Folio.   Catalogue source: IGI.  Bibliography: HR 15444, Pellechet MS 11035, CIBN T-89, IGI 9485.  Copies (List from ISTC): UK=Canterbury Cathedral(in Mendham collection, owned by Law Society but on deposit in the Cathedral), France=Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris (imperfect), Italy=Florence (Laur) Milano (N) Modena (Est) Naples (N) Rome (Cors: Biblioteca dell'Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei e Corsiniana) Venice (Sen). Not checked.  I have placed online some notes about Scinzenzeler.

I have now seen the Canterbury copy (29/8/2002).  Size is NOT folio, as per the ISTC, but quarto.  Size: 220mm x 155 mm.  Quaternions: a(8)b(8)c(8)d(6). 30 folios.  A lter hand has written folio numbers at the foot of each folio, starting at 300 on folio a, and ending with 329.  f.300 is blank both sides; f.329r ends half way down with the text:

Impressum Mediolani magistrum Vldericum Scinzinzeler.
Anno.domini.M.cccc.xciii.die.iiii.mensis.decembris.
F   I   N   I   S

An extra (original) leaf is at either end as a guard-leaf.  The binding is goatskin, and 18/19th century, with a Law Society book plate inside the front cover.  The font is very like that of the Benalius - even down to the hand-written Greek, e.g. on f.314r.  However a comparison indicates the text has been reset.  Spaces are left for illuminated initials, as with the Benalius.  The text is quite abbreviated, but not in the same places always as the Benalius.  I was unable to find differences of wording in a cursory inspection.

Additional Note:  This is apparently a reprint of Benalius - the same text (source: A.-G. HAMMAN, L'Épopée du livre, Paris (1985), p. 160).

Update: The Canterbury copy was offered for sale at Sothebys in June 2013, with an online exhibition here.  It was unsold; but bought afterwards by the Bavarian State Library in Munich.  An image of the first page was displayed.  The catalogue read:

Lot 138.  Tertullianus.  APOLOGETICUS CONTRA GENTES. MILAN: ULRICUS SCINZENZELER, 4 DECEMBER 1493.  Estimate: 6,000 - 8,000 GBP.  Chancery folio (220 x 154mm.), 30 leaves (first leaf blank), a-c8 d6, 35 lines, roman letter, one 9-line initial space and numerous 2-line initial spaces with printed guides, modern red morocco by the Cockerell Bindery with remains of old calf binding and binder's note pasted at end, modern brown buckram folding box, later manuscript foliation at foot (indicating it was once bound with other works, before the previous calf binding), retaining old endleaves from Sammelband (with watermark "Limosin │Fin" datable to Paris in the later eighteenth century), all margins cut close, last leaf with small tear at head. 
Provenance: probably William Roscoe, sale, Liverpool, 19 August 1816, lot 585, noted in Mendham's copy of the Roscoe sale catalogue; Law Society, armorial bookplate.
Literature: HR 15444; GW M45647; IGI 9485.
Catalogue Note: ... One of only two incunable editions of Tertullian, the other printed in Venice not after 1494 (BMC v 376). Rare. ISTC records ten copies, of which only three are located outside Italy (the other edition survives in about 100 copies). It seems plausible, given the rarity, that this is William Roscoe's copy, as Mendham owned a copy of Roscoe's sale catalogue and had marked this lot (he also bought his Complutensian Polyglot Bible from the Roscoe sale; see lot 15). However, the recent binding retains no earlier marks of provenance.

Reprints of Incunables

These are all combined with the works of Lactantius. In some cases (e.g. 1497), it appears that they are not so much reprints as spare copies rebound into the new edition.

1494 : LOCATELLUS : Lactantius and Apologeticus, printed Venetiis, cura et expensiis nobilis viri Domini Octaviani Scoti Modoetiensis, 1494, by Bouctum Locatellum. Not checked. From Migne.

Additional Note:  This is apparently not a reprint but a fresh edition (source: A.-G. HAMMAN, L'Épopée du livre, Paris (1985), p. 160).  I have not yet seen a copy, but naturally will try to obtain photographs.

1497 : ANDREAS : Lactantius, and Apologeticus. Checked. Not in Migne. The Apologeticum portion is listed in IISTC as an example of the it00117000.  This is in fact correct - I have compared the Tertullian portion against a photocopy of the First edition and they are identical. However the combination does appear to be an edition, as it is listed in a recent bibliography of Lactantius as such.  Perhaps the printer had access to 'spare' sheets of the editio princeps and added them to his own work to make the edition?

Early Collected Editions

The early editors attempted to print whatever they could find. It is worth noting that they did not always bother to print things that were hard to read; we know they had access to the Codex Agobardinus, since it is marked up with printer's page numbers, but the Ad Nationes, contained only in that codex, was not printed by anyone until Gothofried. In 1500 many manuscripts were extant which are now lost, which makes the early editions very valuable as a witness to text-variants unknown today. Generally the text will have notes, which list the variant reading of a given codex if it wasn't used, and from this some estimation of that manuscript can be obtained. (see manuscripts).

1521 : EDITIO PRINCEPS. Adams T405.  Online in PDF here! (CUL, Emmanuel (Spieringk bdg)).  Basle, edited by Beatus Rhenanus of Selestadt, printed by Froben. Far and away the most sumptuous of the editions, with fine engravings, broad margins, etc. There is a list of contents on the reverse of the title page. Each text is preceded by an Argumentum but is otherwise largely devoid of notes, with the exception of De Corona, and 6 brief notes on Ad martyras.  Text critical notes appear extensively in the margins (but are progressively transferred into Annotationes in the subsequent editions of 1528 and 1539), mainly concerned with manuscript variants and conjectures.

Rhenanus had access to two manuscripts; the Paterniacensis (from Payerne/Paeterlingen) and the Hirsaugiensis (from Hirsau in Lower Germany, now lost). He mentions the Gorze and Fulda codices (both also lost), but says he couldn't get hold of them 2 This copy in CUL. Checked . Online: Title Page(f1r), Reverse of Title Page (f.1v).

    Opera. Inter Latinos ecclesiae scriptores primi per Beatum Rhenanum. TERTULLIANUS, Quintus Septimius Florens. 
    Book Description: Folio. Mit breiter Titelholzschnittbordüre (Hofleben- Einfassung) von Ambrosius Holbein, 2 Metallschnitteinfassungen von Jacob Faber nach Hans Holbein d. J. (für Widmungsbrief auf Bl. A2 und die Cebestafel auf S. 1), grosser Druckermarke von Urs Graf, erstmals umrahmt von Metallschnittleisten Jacob Fabers (Heitz-Bernoulli 31), kleinerer Druckermarke auf Schlussblatt verso sowie mit einigen grossen und vielen kleineren figurativen Holzschnitt-Initialen. [14] Bl., 615, [1] S., [34] Bl. Schweinslederband d. Z. über 4 erhabenen Bünden, mit Rollen- und Plattenstempeln, zwei intakten Schliessen (untere Ecke des Vorder- und obere des Hinterdeckels beschädigt). Basel, Johann Froben, Juli 1521. Editio princeps der Werke Tertullians (150/160-230), der älteste und einer der bedeutendsten lateinischen Kirchenschriftsteller und Schöpfer der lateinischen Kirchensprache. Die auf Vorschlag von Erasmus von Beatus Rhenanus (1485-1547) besorgte Edition "gehört zu seinen bedeutendsten Herausgeber-Leistungen" (Frank Hieronymus). Der aus dem elsässischen Schlettstadt stammende Beatus Rhenanus (latinisiert für Beat Bild) hatte wiederholt in verschiedenen oberdeutschen Bibliotheken Manuskripte von bis dahin verschollen geglaubten Schriften aus dem Altertum bzw. Mittelalter aufgefunden. Da die Texte oft verderbt waren, erstellte er jeweils eine lesbare Version. Hier, wie in vergleichbaren anderen Editionen, hat Rhenanus nicht nur den Text wiederhergestellt, sondern auch im Dedikationsbrief und in einer "Admonitio ad lectorem" zugleich eine Einführung in die theologische Gedankenwelt von Tertullian gegeben. Zudem fügte er zahlreiche Kommentare hinzu. Dem heute recht selten gewordenen Druck von 1521 war ein grosser Erfolg beschieden, so dass Froben dieses Buch 1528 und 1539 erneut druckte. Als Buchschmuck verwendete Froben zwei neue Metallschnitte nach Hans Holbein d. J. als Texteinfassungen sowie als Titelbordüre die erstmals im Juni 1518 von Froben gedruckte "Hofleben-Einfassung" (Imago vitae aulicae), die zu den besten Holzschnitten von Ambrosius Holbein (1494-1519) gehört. Die beiden nach Hans Holbein d.J. von Jacob Faber geschnittenen Bordüren bestehen aus jeweils vier Leisten und illustrieren die Geschicht des Tantalus und zeigen die allegorische Darstellung des menschlichen Lebens nach den antiken Autor Cebes (sogenannte Cebestafel, hier in der Fassung A), in dem ein Gemälde allegorisch beschrieben wird. Die kleineren und grösseren Initialen mit biblischen und heidnischen Szenen entstammen u.a. einem Alphabet Hans Holbeins, das ab 1510 bei Froben erschienen war. - Wenige Bl. mit schmalem Wasserrand im Fusssteg, durchgehende Marginalien von zwei Händen sowie einer Widmung auf Bl. 615 (Johannes Bussmann) und auf Spiegel von Hermann Wiggering an Petrus Vincentio, datiert 1550. - Titel mit wenigen Wurmlöchern und kurzen Wurmgängen im Kopf- und Fusssteg (zwei alt hinterlegt).

Editio princeps of the works of Quintus Septimus Florens Tertullianus from Carthage, published as one of his chief works as editor and on Erasmus' suggestion by the Alsace born humanist Beatus Rhenanus (1485-1547). Rhenanus had access to two manuscripts, both now lost; the Paterniacensis (from Payerne in Switzerland) and the Hirsaugiensis (from Hirsau in Lower Germany).

    Very important editio princeps of the collected works of the famous 'Doctor of the Church' Quintus Septimius Florens Tertullianus (ca. 160 - 240 AD), edited by the well-known humanist and friend of Erasmus, Beatus Rhenanus (1485-1547). Apart from some editions of the Apologeticus adversus gentes (the first ed. in 1483), this is the first time that the works of Tertullian were printed and came available to the scholarly world. A second edition of Tertulian's Opera was published by Froben in 1528 and 1539. [...]

    After his return from Paris where he studied and worked from 1503 till 1507, Beatus Rhenanus led the life of an independent scholar. For the first 20 years Basel was the centre of his activities, while from 1527 till his death in 1547 he lived in his native Sélestat. Among the printing firms of Basel - Froben in the first place - Beatus quickly secured a privileged position, especially after the arrival of Erasmus in Basel in 1514. Soon a relationship developed between them that was bound to intensify Beatus' contacts with the press of Johann Froben. Until 1519 Beatus appears even to have lived in Froben's house. It was also on Erasmus' suggestion that he edited Tertullianus (the present work), as his last major contribution to Patristic studies.

    Contents:
    p. (1)r: Title.
    p. (2): Contents.
    p. (3)-(9): Dedicatory letter by Beatus Rhenanus to bishop Stanislaus Turzus of Olmutz, dated Basel, 1 July 1521.
    p. (10)-(11): Vita of Tertullianus by Beatus Rhenanus.
    p. (12)-(28): Admonitio ad lectorem de quibusdam Tertulliani dogmatis.
    p. 1-12: De patientia. This is one of the most spiritual of Tertullian's compositions. It is a sermon preached to himself. His experience as a priest has taught him the need of patience every time he confronted pettiness not less than pride, frivolity not less than idolatry. 
    p. 13-33: De carne Christi. Tertullian's principal contribution to the Christological problem of the time: Was the flesh of Christ born of the Virgin and human in its nature?
    p. 34-84: De resurrectione carnis. Tertullian wrote this treatise in fulfillment of the intention expressed in the De carne Christi, against those who allowed that the soul would rise again, but refused resurrection to the flesh on account of its worthlessness
    p. 85-105: De praescriptionibus Haereticorum. This treatise originated in the desire to emphasize the doctrinal stability of the African Church in the face of some fresh tendency towards Gnosticism in general and the views of Marcion especially.
    p. 106-112: Adversus omneis haereses, seu potius de haeresibus.
    p. 113-141: Adversus Judaeos.This treatise was occasioned by a dispute between a Christian and a heathen converted, not to Christianity but to Judaism. Practically, the question between them was the exclusion or not of gentiles from the promises of God.
    p. 142-336: Adversus Marcionem. Lib. I-V. Tertullian wants to find the true church among the Montanists. To him 'the new prophecy' was now the highest authority, the Paraclete the sole guide unto all truth. 
    p. 337-360: Adversus Hermogenes. This treatise against the heretical teacher contains two beautiful passages: the eulogy of wisdom and the description of the development of cosmical order out of chaos.
    p. 361-377: Adversus Valentinianos. It is not so much a refutation as a satire, claiming no originality but being a faithful reflection of the teaching of Justin, Miltiades, Irenaeus and Proculus.
    p. 377-407: Adversus Praxean. In opposition to Praxeas, Tertullian was the first who, in the controversy against the Monarchians, introduced prominently the doctrine of the Holy Spirit.
    p. 408-426: De corona militis. Usually counted the first treatise which indicates traces of Montanism. Opinions were divided as to the soldier's conduct. Some blamed him as rash, as eager to die, etc., some as bringing trouble on the Christian name about a mere matter of dress. Tertullian turns furiously upon his decriers.
    p. 427-431: Ad martyres. One of his important apologetic works, depicting man and women in prison, visited and relieved by the brethren, exhorted to unity, and prepared by fasting and prayer for the death which should be a victory for the church.
    p. 432-444: De poenitentia.Repentance of sin before baptism, and true repentance had its limit in the fear of God. The aim of repentance was the salvation of man through the abolition of sin. 
    p. 445-458: De virginibus velandis. The veiling of virgins was a burning question among Christians at Carthage. Tertullian approved the practice to go everywhere veiled, in the streets as well in the churches.
    p. 458-463: De habitu muliebri.
    p. 464-472: De cultu foeminarum.Tertullian saw the luxury and extravagance of the women of the time and this work is among the efforts to recall Christian women to the Christian way of life.
    p. 472-484: Ad uxorem suam. Lib. I-II. In this treatise addressed to his wife which he hoped might be profitable to her and to other women 'belonging to God', Tertullian argues strongly against second marriages.
    p. 484-497: De fuga in persecutione. May Christians flee from persecution or not? A few years before Tertullian had conceded that flight was 'better', but now he thought differently. Montanistic severity has laid its spell upon him. The work deals with the two modes by which the timid and doubtful sought to evade persecution: flight and
    bribery.
    P. 497-501: Ad Scapulam. Against the African proconsul Scapula who authorized the persecution of Christians to which this work refers. Scapula was a fierce opponent of the Christians, and permitted his fanaticism to override his sense of justice.
    p. 502-507: De exhortatione castiditatis. Urging upon men to avoid a second marriage.Tertullian did so in language declaratory of views far more exaggerated than he did for women in his Ad uxorem.
    p. 507-527: De monogamia. The treatise in which Tertullian is the most bitter on the subject of marriage. He claims for his part and for his party alone that they were guided by the Parclete. From Him they had received their teaching on monogamy.
    p. 528-537: De pallio. This treatise, intentionally extravagant, is a vindication of the philosopher's mantle (pallium) ridiculed by the people of Carthage. It might be called a juridical plea, couched in witty and forensic language.
    p. 538-588: Apologeticus adversus gentes. This Apology - the greatest of his works - is a cry for bare justice, addressed to the rulers and magistrates of Carthage.
    p. 589-614: Beatus Rhenanus, Definitiones ecclesiasticorum dogmatum.

1528 : RHENANUS : 2nd Edition : Adams T406 (CUL, Queens(bdg), St.Johns(Reynes bdg)). Basle, reprint of 1521 edition, printed by Froben. (According to Migne, the British Museum catalogue, vol II, erroneously records a copy of this as having notes by Junius). This edition has two additional prefaces placed between the table of contents (identical in appearance, etc, to that in the 1521 edition) and the preface to the 1521 edition. Rhenanus also added at the front some hasty notes of some length on the first treatise, De patientia, and more briefly on some other treatises.  The first seven treatises then have no additional material, except that De resurrectione carnis had two explicationes (the first was omitted from the 1539 edition, the second abridged) and De praescriptione was followed by 11 text-critical notes; for the others, Rhenanus inserted some annotationes.  There are some 31 annotationes in all, occupying 4 pages. Marginal notes are expanded on those in the 1521 edition with historical material, sometimes repeated in the annotationes. However Rhenanus would have preferred to continue to place conjectures in the margin, but says he had not enough space (p.556) (Maluissemus nostras coniecturas in marginibus chartarum apponere, sed cum longiuscule essent, non est uisa sufficere exiguitas spatii breuioris). 

Not based on any new manuscript witness; the Ad lectorem tells us he hoped to obtain a manuscript from Gorze (see 1539), and an otherwise unknown one from Treves containing De spectaculis, which he supposed to be in two books, but these he could not obtain (Exspectabam avide ex Mediomatricis Gorziensem codicem et a Treviris Spectaculorum libros, sed frustra).  The edition was undertaken, according to the preface, at the demand of readers: Interim propter aemulos secundam aeditionem parare compulsus est Frobenius, studiosis ubique gentium Tertullianum flagitantibus.  The treatises are published in the same order as in 1521.  PL1 38A & n.1.

  • Thomas Cranmer's copy.  Present whereabouts unknown, but described as follows in the 1967 Catalog 949 by New York dealers Stechert-Hafner, Inc., p.32: (photocopy of both pages below sent to me by Pierre Petitmengin) 

      Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury's Copy.

      967 -----, Opera Q. Septimii Florentis Tertulliani . . . Latin, with side-notes in Italic type (stain affecting extreme edge of top margin); 4to, old calf, with ties, sides panelled in gilt & blind, gilt Royal Arms in center (worn, rebacked, backstrip defective). Basle, Frobenius, 1528.                                           $1,100.00

      The title page, which carries the British Museum stamp worded "'Duplicate for Sale, 1769", is signed at the head by Archbishop Cranmer, and at the foot by [John, Lord] Lumley.

      Marginalia.

      There are a number of marginal annotations in ink (a few letters have been shaved by the binder), which we find by careful comparison with authentic documents in the Record Office, London, [In particular with a long holograph letter by Cranmer to Henry VIII in 1541, reporting on visits he has paid to the Queen (Catherine Howard)] to be undoubtedly in the handwriting of Cranmer himself. He has also underscored many passages in the text, a number of them being the subject of the marginalia. The text is otherwise entirely clean and sound, except for slight marginal worming at the end.

      Thomas Cranmer (1489-1556)

      is remembered in particular as Archbishop of Canterbury during the Reign of Henry VIII and for the part he played in the revision of the Second Prayer Book of Edward VI (1552). He promulgated the 42 Articles of Religion (later reduced to 39) in 1552; was committed to the Tower of London for sedition, 1553; was cited to appear before the Pope in 1555, but refused to recognize Papal jurisdiction; and was condemned for heresy, degraded and burned at the stake in 1556.

      Provenance

      John, Lord Lumley (1534-1609) owned a large library and every volume (as this copy of Tertullian) bears his signature on the title page. He inherited the library of his father - Henry Fitzalan, 12th Earl of Arundel (1511-15S0), which contained many books from the library of Thomas Cranmer. On Lumley's death his library was bought by James I, and eventually passed into the old Royal Library, which George II gave to the British Museum.

      THIS IS THEREFORE AN ASSOCIATION COPY OF GREAT RARITY AND UNQUESTIONABLE PROVENANCE.


    The same volume is also described by David G. Selwyn, The library of Thomas Cranmer, Oxford: The Oxford Bibliographical Society (1996), p.76:

    Seconde édition, rare et recherchée, du Tertullien de Beatus Rhenanus. L'humaniste de Sélestat avait donné l'édition princeps des oeuvres de Tertullien quelques années plus tôt (1521), grâce à deux manuscrits (l'un provenant de l'abbaye de Payerne, l'autre du monastère de Hirsau) qu'il avait découverts lors de ses pérégrinations. Le livre eut beaucoup de succès et B. Rhenanus dut entreprendre une autre édition (celle-ci), comportant de nombreuses corrections.

    Beatus Rhenanus (Sélestat, 1485-1547) fut l'un des plus grands humanistes de son temps. Lié avec la plupart des savants contemporains (Lefèvre d'Etaples, S. Brant, Peutinger, Zwingle, S. Münster), et ami d'Erasme, il corrigea et édita les oeuvres de ce dernier. Sa bibliothèque personnelle entière est conservée de nos jours dans sa ville natale.

Fascitellus  (1502-1564) war Benediktiner-Mönch in Monte Cassino; 1551 wurde er von Julius II. zum Bischof von Isola in Calabrien gemacht, er war Teilnehmer am Tridentinischen Konzil. Seine Laktanz-Ausgabe diente mehreren späteren als Vorlage. Zum Kolophon siehe Fletcher S. 76. Der Rhetoriklehrer Laktanz (ca. 250 - wohl 325), wohl ein Schüler des Arnobius und von Diokletian nach Nikomedia in Bithynien berufen, legte 303 zu Beginn der diokletianischen Christenverfolgung dies Lehramt nieder und wurde Apologet. Um 315 wurde er von Konstantin als Lehrer des Crispus nach Gallien (Trier?) berufen. Als Theologe ist Laktanz rückständig, Anhänger chiliastischer Eschatologie, Vertreter eines dualistischen Welt- und Menschenbildes, dessen Gottesbegriff von der römischen Vorstellung eines 'pater familias' und 'imperator' geprägt ist. Er ist kein Anhänger der Trinitätslehre: eine vom Gottessohn getrennte dritte Person des Heiligen Geistes ist ihm unbekannt; er kombiniert jedoch christliches Gedankengut mit platonistisch-gnostischen Einflüssen und zitiert als erster römischer Christ ausgiebig die pagane Literatur, was er theoretisch in Div. inst. V,1-4 begründet. Sein Anspruch ist literarisch, er möchte die heidnischen Gegner auf ihrem Niveau erreichen. Als Ciceronianer benutzt er, sowohl polemisch wie aneignend, häufig Vergil, Lukrez, Seneca u.a. - daneben den "Asclepius", wodurch uns einige von dessen Textpassagen im griechischen Original überliefert sind, und auch 'Offenbarungsliteratur' wie z.B. die Sibyllen. Das Neue Testament spielt unter seinen Zitaten eine nur untergeordnete Rolle; die klassische griechische Literatur kennt er wohl bloß mittelbar. Die Dichter werden von ihm nicht, wie durch die früheren Christen, abgelehnt, sondern er rechtfertigt z.B. die Allegorie in Div. inst. I,5,1 & IV,5,4 als 'officium poetae'. Von der Kirche als Häretiker eingestuft, entfaltet er erst in der Renaissance als 'Cicero Christianus' seine Wirkung. Das berühmte Kapitel über den Wein "Quod Noe fuit inventor vini" (II,13) hier auf fol. 68 sq., vgl. Simon: Bacchica, Nr. 389: "Mais le passage le plus savoureux est celui du chapitre XXII du Livre I, "De falsa religione", celui ou l'auteur commente le droit que le mari avait, a Rome, d'interdire le vin a son epouse." Einband leicht fleckig, stellenweise leicht berieben. Verfassername von zeitgenössischer Hand auf den Vorderschnitt kalligraphiert. Besitzerstempel auf vorderem fliegenden Vorsatz recto oben. Innen vereinzelt im weißen Rand minimal stockfleckig, circa vier Seiten etwas fleckig, wenige saubere Unterstreichungen einer alten Hand; Lage FF wie üblich papierbedingt leicht gebräunt. Ein schönes, frisches Exemplar in zeitgenössischem Wittenberger Meistereinband. - - - Contemporary German blindstamped pigskin over wooden boards, four raised double-bands, two clasps, catches renewed, bound by Nikolaus Müller of Wittenberg. Binding slightly rubbed. As usual, quire FF lightly browned due to quality of paper. From the library of the University of Wittenberg. - The Opera of the Christian apologist Lactantius (?250-?325), the Christian Cicero, who propagandized in Africa and Italy. He was a pupil of Arnobius and native of the province Africa. He received an appointment as professor of rhetoric from Diocletian, and spent part of his life at Nicomedia in Bithynia, and when old he was appointed by Constantine to educate the Prince Crispus in Gaul. His works include 'De opificio Dei', which contains a description of the body and soul of man, and is a sort of supplement to the fourth book of Cicero's 'De re publica'; 'The Divine Institutes', greatest of all his works, which was written against two opponents of Christianity and is a comprehensive survey of the arguments then available in favour of the new religion; 'De ira dei', an able discussion of the problem with which it deals, correcting the false conclusions of the chief philosophical schools. 'De ave Phoenix' is a medley of heathen and Christian elements, and generally believed genuine. Included is the Liber apologeticus of Tertullian. The edition is based upon manuscripts found in the Monastic Library of Monte Cassino. With prefaces of Paulus Manutius and his friend, the humanist, Ioannes Baptist Egnatius. - A very fine copy.

Aldine anchor device on t.p. and recto of HH8.(A72 - Z36). Lactantius (fl. 320) an eminent father of the church, was, as some say, the most eloquent of all ecclesiastical Latin authors. He formed himself upon Cicero, and wrote in such a pure, smooth, and natural style, and so much in the taste and manner of the Roman Orator, that he is generally distinguished as 'the Christian Cicero.' "He well merits the designation of the "Christian Cicero" bestowed on him by the humanists, for he exhibits many of the shortcomings as well as the graces of his master. Among the works of his pen extant, the earliest is the "De Opificio Dei", written in 303 or 304 during the Diocletian persecution, and dedicated to a former pupil, a rich Christian named Demetrianius. The apologetic principles underlying all the works of Lactantius are well set forth in this treatise, which may be considered as an introduction to his great work "The Divine Institutions" (Divinarum Institutionum Libri VII), written between 303 and 311. This the most important of all the writings of Lactantius is systematic as well as apologetic and was intended to point out the futility of pagan beliefs and to establish the reasonableness and truth of Christianity. It was the first attempt at a systematic exposition of Christian theology in Latin, and though aimed at certain pamphleteers who were aiding the persecutors by literary assaults on the Church, the work was planned on a scale sufficiently broad enough to silence all opponents. The strengths and the weakness of Lactantius are nowhere better shown than in his work. The beauty of the style, the choice and aptness of the terminology, cannot hide the author's lack of grasp on Christian principles and his almost utter ignorance of Scripture. The "dualistic and panegyrical" passages, which have been such a puzzle to students of Lactantius, are manifestly not from his pen, but from that of someone who lived close to his time, probably a rhetorician of Trier. The "Epitome Divinarium Institutionum", made by Lactantius himself at the request of a friend named Pentadius, is much more than a mere abbreviation, rather a more summary treatment of the subject dealt with in the older work. Another treatise, "De Ira Dei", directed against the Stoics and Epicureans, is supplementary to the "Divine Institutions" (II,xvii,5) and deals with anthropomorphism in its true sense. Knowing the bent of Lactantius's mind it is not surprising that the only historical work we have from his pen, "De Mortibus Persecutorum", should have an apologetic character. In this work, we have an account of the frightful deaths of the principal persecutors of the Christians, Nero, Dormitian, Decius, Valerian, Aurelian, and the contemporaries of Lactantius himself, Diocletian, Maximian, Galerius, and Maximus. This work, not withstanding the manifest bias of the author, is of prime importance as a source of the last and greatest of the persecutions, though, somewhat strangely, the style is not so perfect might be expected. The full text is found in only one manuscript, which bears the title, "Lucii Caecilii liber ad Donatum Confessorem de Mortibus Persecutorium". Many attempts have been made to show that the work was not written by Lactantius; Bookseller Inventory # 18430. Bookseller: Krown & Spellman, Booksellers (Culver City, CA, U.S.A.)

"First Genevan Edition (and the first in which the various texts were printed together) of these translations from the Tertullian (first: Paris, 1565) and Cyprian (first: Orleans, 1566), the author's first published works. Daneau wants to show in the first two translations (from De cultu foeminarum) that the church fathers (according to 1. Tim.2:9) had already condemned women's excessive love of finery and passion for licentious clothing and ornaments (cf. I. Maclean, "The Renaissance Notion of Woman" Cambridge, 1980, pp. 15-16). The translation from Cyprian is addressed to woman in marrying age and gives advice on their education and conduct in conjugal life. Early texts arguing against licentious clothing as well as advice to women on education and marriage. Daneau (1530-1595) began his career as a lawyer but after an extended stay in Geneva in 1560, he dedicated his life to theology and became a prominent leader in the Protestant movement in France. $3,000.00

  • From an email sent to me by Cédric Monget who has examined the Bordeaux copy:
    RAEMOND (Florimond de), L'Anti-Christ, et l'Anti-Papesse... Edition seconde reveüe, corrigee, et de beaucoup augmentee par l'Autheur., 1 vol., in-4°, pièces limin. + 485 ff + table, A Paris, chez Abel l'Angelier, 1599.
    + [Locations: Bordeaux BM (T2709); Minneapolis U. of Minnesota ; Paris Arsenal (4° T 2291 et T 2292) ; Paris BN (D 5957) ; Philadelphia U of Pennsylvania ; New-Hamps, Yale U].
    + ff. : 455-482 : "De la couronne du soldat. Traduict du Latin de Q. Septim. Tertullian." (Latin text and facing French translation).  ff.456-7 are a dedicatory letter to "A Monsieur de Malvin, seigneur de Cesac, conseiller du Roy en sa Cour de Parlement de Bordeaux."  In this, 'Florimond de Raemond insiste sur la difficulté qu'il y a à traduire et surtout lorsqu'il s'agit du latin de Tertullien... Il complète en citant La Boétie : "Que de tourner d'une langue estrangere / La peine est grande et la gloire legere."' Then follows the l'"Advertissement au lecteur" (ff 457-460), in which he places the work in its historical context and states his intention to translate De praescriptione haereticorum if the present volume is well-received.  However he died in 1601, two years after this work, and never did so.   Revised from 1594 edition.
    + ff. : 482-486 : "Aux Martyrs. Traduict du Latin de Q. Septim. Tertullian." (texte français seul).  Revised from 1597 edition.  Dedicated "A Robert Remond [son] frere de la compagnie du nom de IESUS." (f° 483)
    + M. Monget adds: Florimond de Raemond, parlementaire bordelais successeur de Montaigne, marié à la soeur du démonologue Pierre De Lancre, est un controversiste reconnu. Et c'est dans le cadre de la controverse que cette traduction et la suivante doivent être comprises. Ainsi, il dit (f° 459) : "Or les Lutheriens, compilateurs des Centuries mensongeres, pour se demesler de l'auctorité de Tertullian, disent qu'il avoit aprins en l'escole de Montanus, tout ce qu'il escrit des traditions de l'Eglise Catholique..." mais s'ils le refusent comme théologien, qu'ils l'acceptent comme historien! au même titre que Salluste ou que Tacite! Et c'est en effet les éléments historiques qu'apporte Tertullien qui serve Raemond dans sa défense de l'Eglise.

1635 : (RIGALTIUS/PAMELIUS) : Folio.  This isn't an edition.  Unlike most of his predecessors, Rigaltius didn't just reprint the Pamelius with minor alterations, but instead did a new edition.  However, this meant that the accumulated reference information - notes by Rhenanus, etc - that the Pamelius reprints had acquired was omitted.  This volume contains all of that reference information, as a companion volume to the Rigaltius edition.  Not listed in Migne.  Checked.  Seen at Norwich Cathedral & Blickling.  Other copies listed; Oxford Colleges: Corpus, Christ Church, Pusey, Queens, Trinity, University; National Trust: Blickling Hall.  Title page online.

    Iudaicis. Lutetiæ Parisiorum, apud Petrum le Petit, Edmundum Couterot et Carolum Angot, 1675. 
    In-folio, (250x370 mm), pp. (64), 736, grande marca xilografica al frontespizio a due colori. Legatura coeva in piena pelle (tracce d'uso e difetti alle punte) con 6 grandi nervi, riquadri decorati in oro, tassello in marocchino, tagli colorati. Tertulliano nato fra il 150 e il 160 a Cartagine fu, forse, il primio scrittore latino cristiano. Africano di origine, nato da famiglia pagana, si convertì al Cristianesimo dopo aver osservato l'eroica pazienza dei primi cristiani durante il martirio. Lasciò numerosi scritti apologetici, di morale e contro gli eretici, ma, dopo avere visto la decadenza della prima chiesa cristiana, si avvicinò, per non allontanarsene più, all'eresia montanista. Morì, molto vecchio, verso il 240. La prima edizione dell'opera omnia di Tertulliano vide la luce a Basilea, presso Froben, nel 1521. Brunet, V, 728-729: ""Cette édition est plus belle et plus correcte que celle de Paris, 1664, donnée par le même Le Prieur"". Graesse, VI, p. 70: ""Voici la meilleure et la plus complète édition des oeuvres de Tertullian"".

1675 : DE LA MOTTE, Histoire de Tertullien et d'Origène, Paris (1675).  repr. Leiden 1702.  Octavo. PL1 58C. Not checked.

1676 : Prague.  Edition of De Patientia. Petr Kitzler, who owns a copy and supplied the photos, gives the following details: it was printed in a Jesuit printing house in Prague's Jesuit College "Klementinum" and it was published by the Charles University (in at that time called Universitas Carolo-Ferdinandae). The book is bound in parchment and has 33 pages.  102x63mm (12°).  He adds: If any of the "Tertullianists" have any further information about this edition, I would be grateful to hear it. The size of the pages is duodecimo; the handwritten inscription in the first page reads "Bibliothecae Slanensis 1685"; and according to the title page it was the property of the Piarist School in Slaný (a town approx. 40.km westward from Prague) which was founded in 1658. 

Additional note (2007): "there are two more copies of this edition known - one is in Wien, Oesterreichische Nationalbibliothek, sign. 71.Aa.120, and the second one in Monastery Library Strahov, Prague, sign. Vyš.Kap.II.B.g.67. I have had no time sofar, to check these copies in person, but I am going to do so... Another thing; this edition was printed at the Clementinum's printing house in Prague and it was probably ordered by some private person and was not the initiative of the Society of Jesus itself."

L'opera consta di due libri (...), il primo del lusso, delle vesti e degli ornamenti, il secondo degli artifici e dei belletti. (...) A uno a uno l'autore passa in rassegna, per prendersene gioco, tutti gli artifici che la moda impone, soffermandosi soprattutto sulla varietà delle acconciature del capo e sull'uso delle parrucche; la sua opera è notevole anche per la storia del costume che egli osserva e riproduce con grande vivacità e realismo" (Ercole Pasini, in Bompiani 1959: vol.
