He is notable for his organization of the glosses, the medieval comments on Justinian's codification of Roman law, the Corpus Juris Civilis. He was not proficient in the classics, but he was called "the Idol of the Jurisconsults". Antonio Persio (1542-1597) was an Italian philosopher, theologian and jurist.Antoine Leconte (Antonio Conti)(1517-1586) was a French jurist, famous for his attacks on Calvin.Iustinianus Augustus (Justinian I, 482-565), sometimes known as Justinian the Great, was a Byzantine (East Roman) emperor from 527 to 565. During his reign, Justinian sought to revive the empire's greatness and reconquer the lost western half of the historical Roman Empire. Justinian achieved lasting fame through his judicial reforms, particularly through the complete revision of all Roman law, something that had not previously been attempted. The total of Justinian's legislature is known today as the Corpus juris civilis. It consists of the Codex Iustinianus, the Digesta or Pandectae, the Institutiones, and the Novellae.In particular, the Institutiones is a textbook explaining the principles of law.Provenance: Private library of a Verona noble family, whose roots are in Mantua and in which there were distinguished lawyers and jurists.

At Pavia (1525) he tried to make peace between Francis I of France and Charles V. It was at his prompting that Clement VII espoused the cause of France; the League of Cognac (22 May 1526) was also his work.<br>After the Sack of Rome (1527) he was put in prison and barely escaped death. He succeeded in making his escape, and went to Verona (1528) intending to devote himself to his diocese. He was done with politics, all the more because the pope had gone over to the imperial cause. However, he appeared from time to time in the Curia. Pope Paul III recalled him to Rome for the work of the Reform Committee; among other missions he was sent to Trent to make preparations for the council.<br>His efforts to reform his diocese, whose clergy were in a deplorable state, were crowned with success. The Tridentine reforms were put in force long before the council assembled. St. Charles Borromeo, before taking charge of his see at Milan, wished to study Giberti's system at Verona, and chose as his vicar-general a priest from Verona trained in Giberti's school.<br>His first aim was to improve the standard of ecclesiastical knowledge. In his own palace <b>he set up a printing-press which turned out numerous editions of the Greek Fathers</b>, in whose writings he was very learned. He reformed the choir-school of Verona; for the instruction of the young he had printed the catechism known as Dialogus, the work of Tullio Crispoldi (1539).<br>At Verona, moreover, he gathered around him a group of learned men to assist him in his efforts at reform. His complete works were edited by the scholars Girolamo and Pietro Ballerini (<i>Constitutiones Gibertinae</i>, <i>Costituzioni per le Monache</i>, <i>Monitiones generales</i>, <i>Edicta Selecta</i>, <i>Lettere Scelte</i>), together with an appendix containing the story of his life, a <i>Dissertatio de restitutâ ante concilium Tridentinum per Jo. Matth. Giberti ecclesiasticâ disciplina</i>, and two panegyrics.<br><br><b>References</b>: OCLC 42242890. Bibliopathos

[Mythology] Boccaccio, La Genealogia de gli Dei, 1574
THE MOST IMPORTANT MYTHOLOGICAL MANUAL UNTIL THE LATE SIXTEENTH CENTURYBoccaccio, Giovanni. La genealogia de gli dei de gentili, di M. Giovanni Boccaccio. Con la spositione de sensi allegorici delle fauole, & con la dichiaratione dell'historie appartenenti a detta materia. Tradotta per M. Gioseppe Betvssi Da Bassano. In Venetia: Appresso Giovan. Antonio Bertano, 1574.4to (190x136 mm), paper binding, with marbled paper at boards, red colored edges; [8], 263 leaves.Errors in paging. Printer's device on t.p. Ornamental initials.Fine Venetian edition of Boccace's «Genealogy», a scholarly treatise on ancient Greek and Latin mythology, that remained the most important mythological manual until the late sixteenth century.Genealogia deorum gentilium, known in English as «On the Genealogy of the Gods of the Gentiles», is a mythography or encyclopedic compilation of the tangled family relationships of the classical pantheons of Ancient Greece and Rome, written in Latin prose and here translated by Giovanni Betussi. The work is defined by Encyclopedia Britannica «humanist in spirit and medieval in structure». According to the Preface Boccaccio undertook the project at the request of Hugh IV of Cyprus. The first version was completed in 1360, and he continuously corrected and revised the work until his death in 1374, so that various redactions of the works were copied in different manuscript traditions. In his lifetime and for two centuries afterwards it was considered his most important work.The full range of genealogies of the classical Gods are described in the fifteen books, drawing on the standard earlier works. According to Malcolm Bull, «Boccaccio does his best to make sense of the complex genealogy of the gods. But as he also allows for several gods of the same name, the result becomes enormously confusing. No subsequent mythographer followed his method of organizing material, yet Boccaccio's Genealogia retained its prestige and was to remain the most important mythological manual until the late sixteenth century». The Genealogia was unkindly described by Edward Gibbon as «a work, in that age, of stupendous erudition, and which he ostentatiously sprinkled with Greek characters and passages, to excite the wonder and applause of his more ignorant readers.Boccaccio was responsible for spreading the story, which he credited to Theodontius, that Demogorgon was the ancestor of all the heathen gods, based on a misspelled scholion to Statius, which had intended to claim ancestry for Plato's Demiurge. This gave rise to a literary and iconographic tradition lasting to John Milton and Shelley. From the earliest manuscripts, some believed to be Boccaccio autographs, diagrammatic family trees are included, which are thought to be the earliest non-Biblical uses of this type of graphic, which was already used in the form of the Jesse tree in art.The last two books of the work include a defence of poetry that is his latest and most extended discussion of the subject.Giovanni Boccaccio (1313-1375) was an Italian author, poet, correspondent of Petrarch, and important Renaissance humanist. Boccaccio wrote a number of notable works, including the Decameron and «On Famous Women». As a poet who wrote in the Italian vernacular, Boccaccio is particularly noted for his realistic dialogue, which differed from that of his contemporaries, medieval writers who usually followed formulaic models for character and plot.References: IT\ICCU\CNCE\006363 (7 copies).
