As a theologian, his major work, dedicated to Cardinal Leopoldo de' Medici, is "Controversiae theologicae
, scholasticae, morales, dogmaticae, scripturales, ad mentem D. Thomae Aquinatis ... resolutae", first published in 1670. This is a "miscellanea" of 28 theological problems, solved according to the philosophy of Thomas Aquinas.
Of his works, his seven edited volumes of Syriac lives of saints and martyrs ("Acta Martyrum et Sanctorum") and five volumes of verse-homilies of Jacob of Serugh ("Homiliae
Mar Iacobi Sarugensis") are the most significant. He was able to complete a Neo-Aramaic Bible translation shortly before the end of his life. He died in Cologne, Germany.
From 1835 he worked as principal artist on Charles Antoine Lemaire's "Jardin Fleuriste". He drew and engraved 5 full-page illustrations, including "Impatiens parviflora" for de Candolle's "Quatrieme Notice sur Les Plantes Rares". Between 1839 and 1846 he produced the illustrations for volumes 4-5 of "Icones
plantarum", another of de Candolle's projects in collaboration with Benjamin Delessert (1773-1847). He carried out several commissions for the Geneva Botanical Garden, and directed the engraving and printing in colour of the 180 plates used for 'Voyage botanique en Espagne'.
, standard abbreviation ILS, is a three-volume selection of Latin inscriptions edited by Hermann Dessau. The work was published in five parts serially from 1892 to 1916, with numerous reprints. Supporting material and notes are all written in Latin. Inscriptions are organized within chapters ("capita", singular "caput") by topic, such as funerary inscriptions, or inscriptions pertaining to "collegia". Each inscription has an identifying number. Scholars citing a Latin inscription will often provide the "ILS" number in addition to a reference for the more comprehensive "Corpus Inscriptionum Latinarum" ("CIL"); for example, "CIL" 1.2.774—"ILS" 39. A concordance with "CIL" was published in 1950 (Rome) and 1955 (Berlin).
Dittenberger's research focus was Greek epigraphy. His name is associated above all with the edited collections "Sylloge Inscriptionum Graecarum" (later redited by Friedrich Hiller von Gaertringen) and "Orientis Graeci Inscriptiones
". For "Inscriptiones Graecae", Dittenberger was responsible for the Athenian inscriptions of the Roman period, of Megaris and Boeotia, and of Phocis, Lokris, Aetolia, Acarnania and the Ionian Islands. In addition he edited the inscriptions of Olympia (with Karl Purgold) and the 6th to 11th editions of the widely used commentary on Julius Caesar's "De Bello Gallico" begun by Friedrich Kraner.
This is proved by three sources. In the 2nd century AD, the geographer Ptolemy (II, 9, 6) states: Μεθ ους Ουιρομανδυες, ων πολις Αυγυστα Ουιρομανδυων: "Viromandui", which city is "Augusta Viromanduorum". In the middle of the 3rd century, two inscriptions found in Rome, are dedicated by Praetorians. The first one (" Corpus inscriptionum latinarum VI", 32550 = 2822, before 244), says : "ex Belgica provincia [civitatis Avg] Veromand (orvm)"; the second (CIL VI, 32551 = 2821 = H. Dessau,"Inscriptiones Latinae
", Berlin: Weidmann, 3 t. in 5 vol., 1892–1916, No. 2096), dated 246, is more comprehensive: "civ (itatis) ex prov (incia) Avg Belgica (vstae) Viromandvorv (orum)".
The most important of his many works is considered to be the "Book of Histories", usually called "Chiliades" ("thousands") from the arbitrary division by its first editor (N. Gerbel, 1546) into books each containing 1000 lines (it actually consists of 12,674 lines of political verse). It is a collection of literary, historical, theological, and antiquarian miscellanies, whose chief value consists in the fact that it to some extent makes up for the loss of works which were accessible to Tzetzes. The whole production suffers from an unnecessary display of learning, the total number of authors quoted being more than 400. The author subsequently brought out a revised edition with marginal notes in prose and verse (ed. T. Kiessling, 1826; on the sources see C. Harder, "De J. T. historiarum fontibus quaestiones
", diss., Kiel, 1886).
Károly Kalchbrenner (born 5 May 1807 in Pöttelsdorf, died 5 June 1886 in Spišské Vlachy) was a Hungarian mycologist. He trained in theology early in life and became a priest in Spišské Vlachy, north-eastern Slovakia. His contributions include the publication of 60 papers and description of more than 400 fungi from Europe, Asia, Australia and South America. He wrote and illustrated the "Icones
Hymenomycetum Hungariae". Among those he later collaborated with are Ferdinand von Mueller in Victoria, Australia, John Medley Wood in South Africa, Mordecai Cubitt Cooke in England and Felix von Thümen in Austria. He was elected a full member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, and a corresponding member of the Linnean Society of New South Wales.
When Pope Leo XIII opened the Vatican Secret Archives in 1880, Erhle was called to Rome to do some research on the official correspondence between the Holy See and Germany during the Thirty Years War. The work progressed very slowly as a large number of documents had not been properly cataloged. Ehrle got more and more involved, but, responding to Pope Leo's call for a renewal in Thomistic studies, his interests shifted to gathering and cataloging books and manuscripts on scholasticism. To do so he visited other European libraries. Publications began in 1885 with the "Bibliotheca Theologiae et Philosophiae Scholasticae
" (5 volumes). In the beginning of 1890 he began the publication of a "Historia Bibliothecae Romanorum Pontificum", a comprehensive history of the papal libraries from both Avignon and Rome.
The early details of Philip's career are obscure, but his brother, Gaius Julius Priscus, was made praetorian prefect under Emperor Gordian III (r. 238–44). If a fragmentary inscription ("Inscriptiones Latinae
" 1331) refers to Priscus, he would have moved through several equestrian offices (that is, administrative positions open to a member of the equestrian order) during Gordian's reign. In the spring of 242, Philip himself was made praetorian prefect, most likely with the help of his brother. Following a failed campaign against Persia in the winter of 243–44, Gordian died in camp. Rumors that Philip had murdered him were taken up by the senatorial opposition of the later 3rd century, and survive in the Latin histories and epitomes of the period. Philip was acclaimed emperor, and was secure in that title by late winter 244. Philip made his brother "rector Orientis", an executive position with extraordinary powers, including command of the armies in the Eastern provinces. Philip began his reign by negotiating a peaceful end to his predecessor's war against Persia. In 248, Philip called the Secular Games to celebrate the 1000-year anniversary of the founding of Rome.
On his return to Europe in 1820 Martius was appointed as the keeper of the botanic garden at Munich, including the herbarium at the Munich Botanical Collection, and in 1826 as professor of botany in the university there, and he held both offices until 1864. He devoted his chief attention to the flora of Brazil, and in addition to numerous short papers he published the "Nova Genera et Species Plantarum Brasiliensium" (1823–1832, 3 vols.) and "Icones
Plantarum Cryptogamicarum Brasiliensium" (1827), both works being finely illustrated. An account of his travels in Brazil appeared in three volumes between 1823 and 1831, with an atlas of plates, but probably the work by which he is best known is his "Historia naturalis palmarum" (1823–1850) in three large folio volumes, in which all known genera of the palm family are described and illustrated. The work contains more than 240 chromolithographs, with habitat sketches and botanical dissections. In 1840 he began the "Flora Brasiliensis", with the assistance of the most distinguished European botanists, who undertook monographs of the various orders. Its publication was continued after his death under the editorship of A. W. Eichler (1839–1887) until 1887, and subsequently of Ignatz Urban. He also edited several works on the zoological collections made in Brazil by Spix, after the death of the latter in 1826. In 1837, he was elected a foreign member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
In 1678 he was sent to the garrison at Utrecht, where he contracted a friendship with the celebrated Graevius; here he had the misfortune to be so deeply implicated in a duel that, according to the laws of Holland, his life was forfeited. Graevius, however, wrote immediately to Nicholas Heinsius, who obtained his pardon. Not long afterwards he became a captain of one of the companies then at Amsterdam. After the Treaty of Ryswick in 1697, his company was disbanded, and he retired on a pension to a country house near Amsterdam and pursued his classical and literary studies at leisure. His Dutch poems, in which he followed the model of Pieter Hooft, were first published in 1677; a later edition, with a biography by D. van Hoogstraten, appeared in 1712, the last edition, 1883, was edited by R. A. Kollewijn. His classical reputation rests on his editions of Propertius (1702) and Tibullus (1707). His Latin poems ("Carmina") appeared in 1684; a later edition ("Poemata") by D. van Hoogstraten appeared in 1711. The "Select Letters" ("Jani Broukhusii Epistolae
", 1889 and 1893) were edited by J. A. Worp, who also wrote his biography, 1891. Broekhuizen died on 15 December 1707.
