“Death comes to all, But great achievements raise a monument, Which shall endure until the sun grows old.”

Georg Fabricius

 

Georg Fabricius was an important 16th-century Protestant German author who is responsible for some of the best editions of Greek and Roman classics such as Terence, Virgil, and Horace. And while his commentary on classical literature is without a doubt his best work, he is also known for a study on the history of Christian religion. He published a number of sacred poems as well in which he sought to completely avoid all traces of paganism.

 

This 1571 printing of ‘Virorum Illustrium’ includes many of his sacred poems, but is desirable for his biographical sketches of notable church fathers, historians, and Roman rulers including:

  • Africanus
  • Appian
  • Florus
  • Josephus
  • Justin Martyr
  • Thucydides
  • Prudentius
  • Xenophon
  • Strabo
  • Tacitus
