Unsure? Ask an Expert!

Polydore Vergil was a 15th-century Italian author who was known for his vast knowledge of a variety of subjects. Of his many works, perhaps his most important was ‘De Inventoribus Rerum’, or ‘On Inventions’ – a work in which he describes the history of discoveries, inventions, and origins of the world’s most basic concepts.

 

First published in 1499, this book outlines the formation of iconic intuitions such as marriage and divorce, religion, creation, as well as topics such as military, money, art, architecture, commerce, and even prostitution! Curiously, this work was placed on the Prohibited Books Index by the Catholic church for being highly critical of monks, indulgences, and religious celibacy.
