Physiologus: A Medieval Book of Nature Lore (New)
by Curley, Michael
Publisher: University of Chicago Press
Book ID: 9780226128702, 0226128709
"An elegant little book... still diverting to look at today.... The woodcuts reproduced from the 1587 Rome edition are alone worth the price of the book." - Raymond A. Sokolov, New York Times Book Review
"Curley gives a careful account of the history and development of Physiologus, including the insoluble problem of its authorship." - Anne Clark, Washington Post Book World
One of the most popular and widely read books of the Middle Ages, Physiologus contains allegories of beasts, stones, and trees both real and imaginary, infused by their anonymous author with the spirit of Christian moral and mystical teaching. Accompanied by an introduction that explains the origins, history, and literary value of this curious text, this volume also reproduces twenty woodcuts from the 1587 version. Originally composed in the fourth century in Greek, and translated into dozens of versions through the centuries, Physiologus will delight readers with its ancient tales of ant-lions, centaurs, and hedgehogs -- and their allegorical significance.

Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...

The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More

Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.
