J.L. Vives: De Institutione Feminae Christianae, Liber Secundus & Liber Tertius

Introduction, Critical Edition, Translation and Notes

Series:

Edited by Charles Fantazzi and Matheeussen

Vives’ tract on the education of Women, De Institutione Feminae Christianae (1524, revised 1538) became a model for cunduct books in various Protestant traditions and as such has always been of interest to historians of education. However, the treatise also made a very important contribution to the querelle des femmes of its time and has consequently generated much interest among modern historians of women and gender. It consists of 3 books, one for each stage of woman’s life –maidenhood, marriage and widowhood. The only English translation of the text on offer till now was the inaccurate and free version of Richard Hyrde (a friend of Thomas More), published early in the 20th century by Foster Watson, but now unavailable.
De Institutione Feminae Christianae, 2, contains the critical edition of the Latin text of Books II and III with a double apparatus and a facing-page English translation with notes. It starts with a special introduction to this edition. Volume 1 covering Book 1 was published in 1996. By publishing the 2nd volume the complete text of this important treatise by Vives is now available.

Le Dieu Néant. Théologies Négatives à l'Aube des Temps Modernes is a study of the diverse intellectual possibilities presented to Medieval and Renaissance intellectuals by the negative theology of pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite. It deals specifically with the ontological, epistemological and semiotic aspects of interpretations of Dionysian philosophy developed by such thinkers as Thomas Aquinas, Ficino, Cusanus and Bovelles. It also attempts to differentiate between the negative theology specific to Dionysius, and those elements of negative thinking peculiar to Hermetism and the Christian Cabala. This analysis of negative theology sheds new light on the differences between major intellectual currents of European philosophy (scholasticism, Italian Neoplatonism, German and French mysticism, occultism), while introducing useful distinctions into the history of the Dionysian tradition itself.

This monograph composes the biography of the Deflinne family, whose descendants were booksellers in the town of Tournay for more than a century. Their famous bookbinding workshop achieved the pinnacle of its fame in 1824 when Barthélémy-Leopold Deflinne (1791-1846) becomes the purveyor of King Willem I of the Netherlands. In this study Claude Sorgeloos presents his research on the activities of several generations of bookbinders from the same family and traces the tools they used over two centuries, as attested to by the bindings produced by the workshops led by the Casterman family and Charles Desamblanx, who bought the tools when the Deflinne family ceased their activities. Several aspects of bookselling and bookbinding in a provincial town like Tournay during the Austrian, French and Dutch periods are documented, including the booktrade between Tournay, Paris and La Haye, the trade of bindings between Antwerp and Lille, etc. This volume also contains the genealogy of the family, their unedited correspondance, the catalogue and reproductions of 147 bindings, pricelists and other archival documents.

In France, the Romantic Movement was established by 1820. Book related art forms, i.e., typography, illustration and bookbinding, were part of this vast artistic realm. Bookbinders and gilders used beautiful materials and newly engraved tools, reflecting the contemporary artistic style. The collections of the Bibliotheca Wittockiana include more than 200 works bound in France between 1820 and 1855. The majority of these luxury bindings, mostly of which are signed, were realized in well-known Parisian workshops as well as in quite unknown provincial workshops. This volume contains the reproductions of 210 signed bindings and their descriptions, reproductions of all the bookbinders tikets, 25 colour illustrations, a dictionary of 103 workshops, and several indexes. Because of the information he adds to already known, badly, or completely unknown binders, Paul Culot's publication is the indispensable supplement to the works by Ramsden and Fléty.
