About this Item

Bochart was a 17th century French Huguenot biblical scholar whose work was foundational to the founding of the field as a topic of academic inquiry. The "Geographica Sacra" was first published in Caen in 1646. It seeks to explain the origins of civilization in antiquity based on the biblical stories of the flood and Tower of Babel. Bochart attempted to match the 70 nations mentioned in the biblical account with the various ethnic groups of Europe, Africa and Asia. Critical for Bochart was his claim, which he took from Jewish midrashic sources, that Hebrew was the original language and that all other languages came about because of the Tower of Babel. Includes poems of approbation from Claudius Sarravius, one of the leading men of letters in the 17th century, the French Huguenot poet Philippe le Sueur de Petiville, Franciscus Saracenus, Aegid Menagius, Jacobus Bridou, Petrus du Bosc, Jacobus Savary and Johannes le Myere. Dedicatory introductions by Bochart to Jacob Turgot of St. Clair and Claudius Sarravius. Letter to the printer Pierre de Cardonnel and Bochart authorizing the printing of the book signed by the Belgian Federation censors G. van Hoolk and Corn Musch. Illustrated with 4 engraved fold-out maps of the dispersion of the nations following the Tower of Babel and the Aegean sea with Hebrew and Latin place names. 5th foldout page contains a passage from the Latin playwright Plautus compared to a Hebrew text in order to show the links between the two languages. Text in Latin with sections in Greek and Hebrew. Small stamp and few words handwritten in black ink on title page. Heavy age wear, abrasions and staining to binding. Head and tail of spine chipped. Minor worming to margin near fore edge on first 26 pages not affecting text. Map strengthened on verso. Rippling to pages. Binding in poor, interior in overall good condition.
