Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Geschichte - Weltgeschichte - Fruhgeschichte, Antike, Note: 3,0, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitat Munchen (Historicum), Veranstaltung: Proseminar Alltagsleben im antiken Rom, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: religione. omnis gentis nationesque superavimus 1 In diesem Zitat von Cicero kann man deutlich erkennen was die Romer von sich selbst bezuglich der Religion halten: sie uberragen durch Religiositat alle Volker und Stamme. Die Romer hielten sich fur unubertrefflich auf diesem kultischen Gebiet und waren von sich selbst als frommes Volk uberzeugt. Vergil legt hierzu sogar noch eines drauf: genus. supra homines supra ire deos pietate videbis. 2 Er lasst in seinem Werk Aeneis Jupiter sagen, dass die Romer eines Tages alle Menschen und Gotter an Frommigkeit ubertreffen werden. Diese Art der Frommigkeit druckte sich ihnen in der Religion(religio) aus und die bestand groten Teils aus kultischer Verehrung der Gotter (cultus deorum). Die Verehrung wurde durch Gebete und Riten fur die Gotter praktiziert und brachte somit einen religiosen und zugleich gesellschaftlichen Aspekt in die Religion ein. Doch konnte man die Sache mit der Religion nicht auch mal anders betrachten? Dies tat Plinius Secundus. Er blickte ihr kritisch entgegen und sagte in seiner naturalis historia genau was er von der Religion der Romer und im Allgemeinen hielt. Plinius behandelt dort ein paar Dinge sehr detailliert und hebt die romische Religion nicht in den Himmel. Bookseller Inventory # APC9783656148906

Item Description: Franciscum Hackium, Leiden, 1648. Book Condition: Very Good. 12mo., [1]ff, [34], 612pp [pp 454-5 misnumbered 654-5], [47]; 87pp. Bound in contemporary sheepskin with faded manuscript title to spine, additional collective engraved title and separate title page for Novus Atlas, pages clean and fresh but some minor worming to upper margin (affecting a few letters of ) of aprox. 75 pages as well as blank margin of engraved title, but not detracting much from the work, a handsome copy likely in original binding, holding extremely well, manuscript 17th/18th century signature of a William Wright to endpaper and title. Scarce first Latin edition of Bacon’s celebrated work, published the same year as an Elzevir printing in Amsterdam. First published posthumously in the year of Bacon’s death (1626), Sylva Sylvarum is a an aptly-described "miscellany of topics", dealing with the prolongation of life, the natural world, and the wisdom of the ancients, arranged in 1000 numbered paragraphs. William Rawley, Bacon’s secretary, chose to addend the unfinished manuscript of New Atlantis to the former work, if only for convenience’s sake. Bacon’s utopian population famously practice eugenic breeding and are committed fundamentally to the pursuit of scientific learning. Having enjoyed five English editions by 1639, the present work attests to Bacon’s popularity beyond British shores; Elzevir in Amsterdam and Hackium in Leiden brought out simultaneous Latin translations in 1648. Hackium’s re-engraved title page, interestingly, follows the original of 1626 rather closely, including a globe with outlines of the continents. Bookseller Inventory # PAB 91808

Item Description: Medioburgi, J, Fierens, (1662-1669). 3 volumes bound in one. 8vo (152 x 100mm). pp. (30), 236; (32), 259; (16), 159, with 3 engraved frontispieces, 1 engraved portrait of Goedaert, 1 engraved coat of arms and 152 engraved plates printed on 126 leaves. Contemporary calf, spine in 5 compartments (rubbed). The first Latin edition published in the same years as the Dutch edition. Johannes Goedaert (1617-1668) was a famous Dutch landscape and flower painter who lived all his life in Middelburg. "No botanical or zoological drawings are extant. An impression of them however is conveyed by his 'Metamorphosis Naturalis' with its 126 superb engravings. The book describes the results of his investigation into the metamorphosis of insects, accompanied by a large amount of original observations, some of which were prompted by experiments with his own cultures. The book stood model for several other celebrated treatises on the subject, for example Maria Sibylla Merian" (Segal, Flowers and nature, p. 198). A small number of pages somewhat browned as is mostly the case with this book.Provenance: Bookplate of John Cookney on inside frontcover and old signature of D'Apples on title.Nissen ZBI, 1602.
