OSIANDER



1864



OSSINGTON



Osiander, (ANDREAS,) a son of Lucas, noticed below,
was born in 1562. He was chancellor of the University
of Tubingen, and wrote several works/on theology. Died
in 1617.

Oaiander, JOHANN ADAM,) born at Tubingen in
1626, was professor of theology in that city. He wrote
a Commentary on the Pentateuch, (1676-78,) and on
other books of Scripture. Died in 1697.

Oaiander, (JOHANN ADAM,) a philologist, born at
Tubingen in 1701, was a grandson of the preceding.
Died in 1756.

Osiander, (LUCAS,) THE ELDER, a son of Andreas,
(1498-1552,) was born at Nuremberg in 1534. He was
appointed in 1567 court preacher to Duke Frederick of
Wiirtemberg, and published several polemical treatises.
Died in 1604.

Oaiander, (LUCAS,) THE YOUNGER, a son of the pre-
ceding, was born at Stuttgart about 1570. He became
chancellor of the University of Tubingen. His writings
are chiefly controversial. Died in 1638.

Osinski, o-sens'kee, (LEWIS,) a distinguished Polish
poet and littlrattur, born in 1775. He published in 1804
an excellent translation of Corneille's tragedies into
Polish. Among his poems, which are highly esteemed,
we may name the "Ode to Copernicus." Died in 1838.

Oslo, o'se-o, [Lat. O'sius,] (FELICE,) an Italian litti-
rattur, born at Milan in 1587, was professor of rhetoric
in the University of Padua in 1621. He published,
among other works, a "Eulogy of Illustrious Writers,"
and a number of "Orations." Died in 1631.

O-si'ris, [Gr. 'Oatpif,] the god of the Nile, and one
of the principal divinities of Egypt, was said to be the
husband of Isis and father of Horus. He was regarded
as the author of Egyptian civilization, and the first who
taught the arts and sciences to that nation. Tradition
adds that he visited and civilized India, Arabia, and
other countries, and after his return was murdered by
Typhon. He was worshipped under the form of the
bull Apis, into which it was supposed his soul migrated
when he was slain by Typhon. Osiris and Isis are to
be regarded as different manifestations of one divine
principle, the former representing the beneficent power
of nature in activity, the latter in passivity, so that
neither is complete without the other ; and hence Osiris,
according to some, represented the life-giving power of
the sun, and Isis the fertility of the earth.

See PLUTARCH, "Treatise on IBIS and Osiris;" GUIGNIAUT,
"Religions de 1'Antiquite 1 ." Paris, 1835, book iii. chap. ii. ; "Bio-
graphic UniverseUe," (Partie mythologique.)

Osirteaen I., called also Seeertesen and User-
tesen, an Egyptian king of the twelfth dynasty. He
conquered Ethiopia, repelled the negroes and Asiatics,
founded the great temple of Karnak, and, according to
some authors, seems to have been one of the Pharaohs
under whom Joseph was in power, his chief officer, Ameni,
somewhat resembling that patriarch ; but if Lenormant's
approximate date be correct, which assigns his dynasty
to the thirty-first century B.C., the identification cannot
be made good. Indeed, the later Egyptologists appear
to reject it very generally.

Osios. See Osio.

O'al-us, Bishop of C6rdova, born in Spain in 256
A.D., enjoyed the favour and confidence of Constantine
the Great, who, on his recommendation, convoked the

OSTERMANN



Ossoli, os'so-lee, (originally SARAH MARGARET FUL-
LER,) MARCHIONESS, an American lady, whose talents,
rare individuality of character, and untimely death have
given to her history a peculiar and tragic interest, was
born at Cambridgeport, in Massachusetts, May 23, 1810.
Under the care of her father, a lawyer and member of
Congress, she was early and thoroughly instructed in
the classics. It is related that he used to say of her,
while still a child, that she " knew more Latin and Greek
than half the professors." At a very early age she
bad also made great proficiency in French and Italian.
After the death of her father, in 1835, she became teacher
of languages in Boston, and subsequently principal of
a school at Providence, Rhode Island. In 1839 she
published a translation of Eckermann's "Conversations
with Goethe." She became in 1840 editor of "The
Dial," a periodical instituted for the advocacy and dif-
fusion of Transcendentalism in America, and for which
she wrote a number of admirable articles on literature
and art. Her critique on Goethe especially, in the
second volume of the "Dial," has been greatly and
deservedly praised. " Nowhere," says Mr. Emerson,
"did Goethe find a braver, more intelligent, or more
sympathetic reader." Her " Summer on the Lakes," a
vivid and truthful picture of prairie-life, was published
in 1843. Soon after, she took charge of the literary
department of the New York "Tribune." In 1846 she
visited England, where she made the acquaintance of
Carlyle and other eminent men. From London she
journeyed through France to Italy. At Rome she acci-
dentally became acquainted with the Marquis Ossoli, to
whom, though many years younger than herself, she
was married in December, 1847. She took the deepest
interest in the cause of Italian liberty, and during the
siege of Rome, in 1849, devoted herself with untiring
assiduity to the care of the sick and wounded. In May,
850, she and her husband set sail for America; but, a
violent storm having arisen when they were near the
coast of the United States, the vessel struck on Fire
Island beach, Long Island, in the morning of the igth
of July, and a few hours after went to pieces. Among
those who perished vere the Marquis and Marchioness
Ossoli and their child.

of lieutenant-general, and in 1666 he was created an
English peer, as Lord Butler. Having served with
distinction in several sea-fights against the Dutch, he
was raised to the rank of admiral about 1674. In
1677 he commanded the English troops that fought for

yfth' e He-r6n',) DUKE OF, a celebrated Spanish states-
man, born at Valladolid in 1579. After completing his
suidies at Salamanca, he repaired to the court of Philip
II., from which, in consequence of indulging his caustic



wit, he was banished. Having spent some time in France
and Portugal, he returned to Spain on the death of Philip
II., but he again had the misfortune to be exiled from
the court. He was recalled to Spain in 1607, and was
created a member of the council and knight of the
golden fleece. Through his influence the independence
of Holland was acknowledged in the treaty of 1609, and
he opposed warmly, though unsuccessfully, the expulsion
of the Moors, which took place about this time. In
1611 he was sent as viceroy to Sicily, and in 1616 filled
the same office at Naples, where he defended the people
against the oppressions of the nobles and the clergy.
He gained a signal victory in 1617 over the Venetians,
who had claimed exclusive rule over the Adriatic Sea,
Having refused to introduce the Inquisition into Naples
when required to do so by Philip III., and being sus-
pected of aspiring to supreme power, Ossuna was super-
seded by Cardinal Borgia in 1620. He died in prison
in 1624, after three years' imprisonment in Spain.
