and lived many years at Athens, where he was intimate
with Demonax and employed his time in literary com-
position. His principal works are dialogues, written
in pure and elegant Greek, on history, mythology, phi-
losophy, and various other subjects. His object appears
to have been to cure men of their prejudices and super-
stitions and their foolish admiration of philosophic char-
latans. His genius is eminently satirical, and his works
are remarkably humorous ; but some of them are cen- i
sured as offensive to morality and religion. Among the
titles of his dialogues are "Timon the Misanthrope,"
" Charon," " Menippus," and " The Assembly of Gods."
English versions of his dialogues have been published by
T. Franklin (1780) and William Tooke, (1820.) Wieland
produced a good German translation. Good editions of
the Greek text have been published by Dindorf (Paris,
1840) and Bekker, (1853.)

Lucian, [Fr. LUCIEN, lii'se'aN',] SAINT, a Christian
martyr, born at Samosata in the third century, was emi-
nent for piety and learning. He was ordained a priest
or presbyter at Antioch. He prepared a revised edition
of the Scriptures, which, Jerome says, was more correct
than those of Hesychius and Pamphilus. Diocletian
having issued an edict against the Christians, Lucian
luffered martyrdom in 312 A.D.

See SAINT JEROME, " De Viris illustribus ;" EUSKBIUS, " Historia
Ecclesiastica."

Lucien, the French of LUCIAN, which see.

Lu'cl-ff r, Bishop of Calaris, (now Cagliari,) in Sar-
dinia, was noted for his intolerance and zeal against
Arianism. About 355 A.D. he was banished by Constan-
tius, who favoured the Arians. He wrote a " Defence
of Athanasius," and other works. He refused to recog-
nize as orthodox those bishops who signed the formula
of Rimini, (359,) or to have fellowship with any who
recognized them, and finally became the author of a
schism. He had many followers, who formed a distinct
sect, called Luciferians. Died about 370 A.D.

Lu-cill-UB, (CAIUS,) a Roman satiric poet, born at
Suessa Aurunca, (now Sessa,) in Italy, about 148 B.C., was
a great-uncle of Pompey the Great In early youth he
served under Scipio Africanus at the siege of Numan-
tia, and became an intimate friend of that general. He
composed thirty satires and various other poems ; but
only fragments of his works have come down to us.
Horace asserts that he was the first writer of satire
among the Romans, (Sat., lib. 2, i. 62.) His satires
were much admired by many ancient critics, including
Cicero, Quintilian, and Pliny. " He was," says Professor
Sellar, "vehement in invective, because he was thor-
oughly earnest in his purpose to expose vice and base-
ness among the high and low with impartial severity.
Although probably few writers of verse have had less
poetical faculty, yet, by his originality and force of char-
acter, he became the favourite of his own time and coun-
try; and he alone among Roman writers has introduced
a new and permanent form of poetry into the world."
Died about 100 B.C.

See SELLAR, " Roman Poets of the Republic," chap. vi. ; PETER-
MANN, " Dissertatio de C. Lucilii Vita," 1842 : SMITH, " Dictionary
of Greek and Roman Biography."

Lucil'iUB Ju'nior, a Roman poet and naturalist,
lived in the first century, and was a friend of Seneca.
He is supposed to be the author of a poem of six hun-
dred and forty hexameter verses, entitled " jEtna," which
presents some fine passages.

Lu-ci'na, [Fr. LUCINE, lii'sen',] the name of the god-
dess that brings to light and presides over the birth of
children, was used as a surname of Juno and of Diana,
both of whom were supposed to assist women in partu-
rition, and were sometimes called LUCIN^E. The Greek
goddess ILITHYI'A or EILEITHYIA ['Edti&via] appears to
be essentially the same as Diana (Artemis) in her char-
acter of Lucina.

Lucius. See Luz.

Lucius, loo'she-us, [Fr. LUCE, liiss,] 1, Bishop of
Rome, succeeded Cornelius in October, 252 A.D., and
died in March, 253. Stephen I. was his successor.

Lucius IL, a native of Bologna, was elected pope in
March, 1144, as successor to Celestine II. He died in
1145, after a pontificate of eleven months, and Eugenius
III. was chosen in his place.

Lucius TTT (Cardinal UBALDO OF LUCCA) was elected
pope in II 81, after the death of Alexander III. His
election was the first that was decided by the cardinals,
the clergy and people being excluded from the right to
vote. A revolt of the people of Rome obliged him to
leave the city, and he retired to Verona. He died in
1185, and was succeeded by Urban III.

Lucius, (CAESAR,) a Roman prince, born 17 B.C., was
a son of M. Agrippa and Julia, who was a daughter of
the emperor Augustus. He and his brother Caius were
heirs-presumptive of the empire, but they died before
Augustus. Lucius died in 2 A.D. The Maison Carrie
at Nimes was a temple dedicated to Caius and Lucius.

Lucius, lu'shejis, [It, Lycio, loo'cho,] (GIOVANNI,)

Liicke or Luecke, liik'keh, (GOTTFRIED CHRISTIAN
FRIEDRICH,) an eminent German theologian, was born

Halle in 1810, and subsequently at Gbttingen, where
he formed a friendship with Bunsen and Lachmann.
He became professor of theology at Bonn in 1818, and
soon after published, conjointly with Schleiermacher and
De Wette, the "Theological Journal." His " Commen-
tary on the Writings of Saint John the Evangelist" (4
vols., 1820-32) is esteemed one of the best works of its
kind. In 1827 he succeeded Staudlin in the chair of
theology at Gottingen. Died at Gbttingen in 1855.

Luckner, look'ner, (NiKOLAUS,) a marshal of France,
born at Kampen, in' Bavaria, in 1722. At an early age
he entered the service of Prussia, for which he fought
with distinction in the Seven Years' war, (1756-63.)
About 1763 he accepted the rank of lieutenant-general
in the French army, which for many subsequent years
was not called into active service. Having submitted
to the new re'gime, he was promoted to the rank of mar-
shal in December, 1791. In the spring of 1792 he ob-
tained command of one of the armies which defended the
frontier against the Austrians, and a few weeks later
succeeded Rochambeau as general-in-chief. The domi-
nant party, distrusting both his fidelity and capacity, de-
prived him of the command in 1792. He was guillotined
in January, 1794.

Lucotte, liiTcot', (EDME AIM,) COUNT, a French

Lucrece. See LUCRETIA and LUCRETIUS.
Lucretia, loo-kree'she-a, fit LUCREZIA, loo-kReV-
se-i ; Fr. LUCRECE, lii'kR&s',J a Roman lady, distin-
guished for her beauty, virtue, and tragical destiny, was
the wife of Collatinus, who was related to Tarquin the
Proud, King of Rome. The outrage offered to her honour
by Sextus Tarquin, and the voluntary sacrifice of her
life, (507 B.C.,) have furnished a favourite theme for poets
and painters, and, according to a doubtful legend, caused
the dethronement of Tarquin, and the conversion of the
Roman state into a republic, under the direction of
Junius Brutus.

Lucretius, lu-kree'she^us, [Fr. LUCRECE, luTtRjss';

Ca'rua, one of the greatest Latin poets, was born in
Italy in 95 B.C., and was contemporary with Cicero.
The records of antiquity throw scarcely any light on his
life, which was probably passed in studious retirement.
It is not known whether he ever visited Greece ; but
it is evident from his writings that he had profoundly
studied the language, philosophy, and manners of that

people. A doubtful tradition asserts that he was subject
to insanity caused by a love-potion ; and the statement
that he committed suicide in his forty-fourth year is gen-
erally credited. He left only one work, a philosophic
and didactic poem, in six books, entitled "De Rerum
NaturaV' ("On the Nature of Things,") in which he ex-
pounds and illustrates the physical and ethical doctrines
of Epicurus, of whom he was a disciple. From such
abstruse speculations and intractable subjects he has
produced one of the most admirable poems in the lan-
guage. Although his system is erroneous and incoherent,
his reasoning is remarkably clear and close. Probably
no other work so amply demonstrates the power of the
Latin language to utter the sublimest conceptions with

voted for the conversion of the kingdom into a republic,
and was one of the judges who condemned Charles L

council of state, in which he opposed the ambitious

general, born of a patrician family about no B.C. In

prudence and courage. ("Pro Murasna.") Lucullus then
retired from public affairs, and expended part of the im-
mense fortune he had acquired in the East in building
magnificent villas, giving sumptuous entertainments, and
collecting expensive paintings and statues. He was a
liberal patron of learning and the arts. Sulla had dedi-
cated to him his Commentaries. Plutarch, after com-
paring him with Cimon, says it is hard to say to which
side the balance inclines. He was living in 59, but was
not living in 56 B.C.
