As the son of a wealthy official of the king he received a thorough classical and secular education. He entered the Dominican Order at Paris and distinguished himself for his assiduity in study. When Jacques Quétif, who had planned and gathered nearly one-fourth of the material for a literary history of the Dominican Order, died in 1698, Echard was commissioned to complete the work. After much labour and extensive research in most European libraries this monumental history appeared in two quarto volumes, under the title "Scriptores ordinis prædicatorum recensiti, notisque historicis
ad annum 1700 auctoribus." (Paris, 1721). There was a reprint: New York: Burt Franklin, 1959-61.
During his career Weihe described some 160 new plant species. In particular, he made important contributions to the study of the genus "Rubus". Weihe was the first to realise that the bramble, "Rubus fruticosus", was not in fact a single species but a complex of similar species; among specimens collected in the vicinity of his home at Mennighüffen he distinguished 18 separate species. Between 1822 and 1827, Weihe and his collaborator, Christian Gottfried Nees von Esenbeck, a taxonomic botanist, published a monograph of the German brambles, "Rubi Germanici descripti et
", in which they described 49 species of "Rubus".
At age sixteen he published his first book: a scholarly edition of the late antique author Martianus Capella's work on the seven liberal arts, "Martiani Minei Felicis Capellæ Carthaginiensis viri proconsularis Satyricon, in quo De nuptiis Philologiæ & Mercurij libri duo, & De septem artibus liberalibus libri singulares. Omnes, & emendati, & Notis, siue Februis Hug. Grotii
" [The Satyricon by Martianus Minneus Felix Capella, a man from Carthage, which includes the two books of 'On the Marriage of Philology and Mercury', and the book named 'On the Seven Liberal Arts'. Everything, including corrections, annotations as well as deletions and illustrations by Hug. Grotius].
His first published work was an edition of Themistius (1684), which included no fewer than thirteen new orations. On the advice of Jean Garnier (1612–1681) he undertook to edit the "Natural History" of Pliny for the Dauphin series, a task which he completed in five years. Aside from editorial work, he became interested in numismatics, and published several learned works on this subject, all marked by a determination to be different from other interpreters. His works on this topic include: "Nummi antiqui populorum et urbium
" (1684), "Antirrheticus de nummis antiquis coloniarum et municipiorum" (1689), and "Chronologia Veteris Testamenti ad vulgatam versionem exacta et nummis illustrata" (1696).
Quétif was born in Paris. He entered the Dominican Order at the age of 17, then studied philosophy at Paris and theology at Bordeaux. In 1652, he became librarian of the Dominican convent in the rue Saint-Honoré in Paris. He maintained relations with Chancellor Séguier, who entrusted his library and choice of books to him. He was much consulted as an expert in canon law. His knowledge and his ability to write in Latin resulted in his superiors giving him the task of writing the history of the order. This work was incomplete at his death but was afterwards finished by Jacques Échard, who published it under the title "Scriptores ordinis praedicatorum recensiti notis historicis et criticis
auctoribus" in 1719-21.
Luigi Groto, also called Cieco d'Adria or Cieco D'Hadria (the blind man of Adria) (born 7 September 1541, died 13 December 1585), was a blind Italian poet, lutenist, playwright and actor. Groto was born in Veneto and lost his sight eight days after birth. He studied philosophy and literature with such success that at the age of 15 he was already a public orator. He was often in Venice as an envoy from Veneto, and entertained with public performances of his songs. In 1565 he was appointed president of the newly founded Academy of
of Adria. He died in Venice, having just come from the theater where he had played the role of the blind King Oedipus. In 1623 Filippo Bonaffino set some of his poetry to music in a book of madrigals.
The "Praeloquia" were published along with a commentary on the Pentateuch in a volume entitled: "Pentateuchis Mosis commentario illustatis, praemissis praeloquiis perutilibus" (fol., Antwerp, 1625). This was followed by his commentary on Josue, Judges, and Ruth, to which he added a treatise on sacred geography, composed by Eusebius and translated by Jerome: "Josue, Judices et Ruth commentario illustarti. Accessit Onomasticon" (fol. Paris, 1631). Bonfrère had undertaken to explain the Books of Kings before his work on the Pentateuch, he tells us in his preface to the latter; but he had felt the need of going back to the beginning of things. His "Libri Regnum et Paralipomenon commentariis
" was given to the press in Tournai, in 1643, after his death. But the printing-house was burned, and the work did not appear. Biographers have no reference even to the manuscripts. Bonfrère is said to have left commentaries on nearly all the other books of the Bible. His explanation of the text of scripture shows a very good knowledge of Hebrew, and pays special attention to the places mentioned. His erudition is extensive for his time. The soberness and judiciousness of his comments are generally admired among Catholic theologians.
