This book describes the later life of Joseph Scaliger (1540-1609), the most original scholar of the late Renaissance. It concentrates on his efforts to date the main events of ancient and medieval history, a study that required him to use both astronomical data and philological methods. Volume I of this study was published in 1983, and received wide critical attention.
