Wolf, woolf, [Ger. pron. wolf; Lat. WOL'FIUS,]
(FRIEDRICH AUGUST,) a celebrated German scholar
and critic, was born at Hainrode, near Nordhausen, in
Prussia, on the 151)1 of February, 1759. He studied at
Nordhausen, and had become a good classical scholar
when he entered the University of Gottingen, in 1777.
He acquired in early life a habit of independent judg-
ment, and devoted himself at Gottingen to the study
of philology. He incurred the ill will of Heyne, who
refused to admit him to one of his lectures. In 1779 he
was employed as teacher at Ilfeld. He published an
edition of Plato's "Symposium" in 1782, enriched with
notes and an introduction, in which he gave proof of
critical sagacity. Having married about 1782, he was

WOLFE



appointed professor of philosophy at Halle in 1783, and
director of the Pedagogic Institute, which he trans-
formed into a philological seminary or normal school.
He had formed an exalted idea of the vocation of
teacher, which he pursued with much zeal and success.
During the twenty-three years in which he occupied
the chair at Halle, he gave more than fifty courses of
lectures on different authors and subjects, besides his
labours in the philological seminary. He published an
edition of Homer's poems in 1784 and 1785, and an
edition of Demosthenes' oration against Leptines, about
1790. The latter opened a new era in the study of
the Greek orators. His celebrity was increased by his
"Prolegomena ad Homerum," (1795,) in which he sup-
ported with much ingenuity the novel and paradoxical
theory that the " Iliad" and " Odyssey" were not written
by Homer or any single poet, but that they were
formed by the junction of several poems, composed by
different rhapsodists. This work produced a great
sensation among the learned throughout Europe ; but
his theory was accepted in full by a very few only.
Wolfs claim to priority in this discovery was disputed
by Heyne, and was defended by the former in " Letters
to Heyne," (1797,) which are regarded as models of
controversy and refined irony. He published an edition
of Suetonius, (1802,) and an edition of Homer, (" Ho-
meri et Homeridarum Opera," 4 vols., 1804-07.)

In consequence of the war, the University of Halle
was closed in 1806, soon after which Wolf removed to
Berlin, and took a prominent part in organizing the
university of that city. He received the title of privy
councillor at Berlin. Wolf and Buttmann published
the "Museum der Alterthumswissenschaft," (1807-10.)
In a remarkable treatise, entitled "Exhibition of Archae-
ology," (" Darstellung der Alterthumswissenschaft,") he
gave a programme of the studies of antiquity and phi-
lology which he wished to be pursued. He published
an excellent philological journal, called "Literarische
Analekten," (1817-20.) To improve his health, he visited
the south of France in the spring of 1824. He died a-t
Marseilles in August of that year.

(JoilANN CHRISTIAN,) FREIHERR, a celebrated German
philosopher and mathematician, born at Breslau, January
24, 1679, (or, according to some authorities, 1674.) After
he had studied for some years in the College of Breslau,
he entered the University of Jena in 1699. He devoted
himself to the exact sciences, and began at an early age
to meditate the reform of practical philosophy by the
application of mathematical methods. About 1701 he
passed from Jena to Leipsic, where he took his degree
in philosophy, and delivered lectures. He became ac-
quainted with Leibnitz, who exercised considerable
influence over him. In 1707 he was appointed professor
of mathematics and philosophy at Halle. He published
"Thoughts on the Powers of the Human Mind," (1712,)
and " Elements of Universal Science," (" Elementa
Matheseos universal, " 1713-15.)

His peace was disturbed by the intrigues of the
professors of theology, who censured his doctrines as
dangerous to religion and morality. Instigated by these
adversaries, among whom Joachim Lange was especially
violent, the King of Prussia removed Wolf from his chair
in 1723, and banished him from the kingdom. Before
that year he had published " Rational Thoughts on God,
the World, and the Human Soul," (1720,) "Thoughts
on the Search after Happiness," (1720,) and other works
He was professor of mathematics and philosophy at
Marburg for eighteen years, (1723-41.) During this
period he published a number of works, among which
are a celebrated "Treatise on Logic," (" Philosophia
Rationalis, sive Logica methodo Scientifica pertractata,"
1728,) " Primitive Philosophy, or Ontology," (" Philoso-
phia prima, sive Ontologia," 1730.) "Moral Philosophy,
or Ethics," ("Philosophia moralis, sive Ethica," 1732,)
" Rational Psychology," (" Psychologia rationalis," 1 734,)
and " Universal Practical Philosophy," (" Philosophia
practica universalis," 2 vols., 1738-39.) About 1733
he was invited by the king to return to Halle. He
declined to change his position until the accession of
Frederick the Great, (1740,) when he resumed his pro-
fessorship at Halle. He was appointed privy councillor
and professor of international law. Among his later
works were "The Law of Nature," ("Jus Naturae," 8
vols., 1740-49,) and "The Law of Nations," ("Jus
Gentium," 1749.) He had married Catherine Marie
Brandisin in 1716, and had several children. As a phi-
losopher, he developed and popularized the doctrines
of Leibnitz, his mind being methodizing rather than
creative. Died in April, 1754.

consumption, at the early age of thirty-one. His works
were published in 1825, under the title of "Remains
of the Late Rev. Charles Wolfe," etc. : they consist of
sermons, prose sketches, and lyric poems of great
beauty. Among the last-named is his "Burial of Sir
John Moore," which is esteemed one of the finest
productions of the kind in the language.

Kent in 1726. He served with great distinction in Ger-
many in the early campaigns of the Seven Years' war,
and had a prominent part in the capture of Louisburg
from the French in 1758. He was appointed in 1759 to
command the land-forces in the expedition against the
French in Canada, having been previously made major-
general. After several ineffectual attempts to drive the
French army from their position near Quebec, he at
length succeeded in ascending the Heights of Abraham,
commanding that city, and, in the battle which ensued,
gained a decisive victory over the enemy. He was,
however, mortally wounded in the action, dying on the
field of battle immediately after he was informed of the
result. His opponent, General Montcalm, also fell in
this engagement, and the French lost their possessions
in Canada.

nounced the practice of medicine, and devoted himself
to scientific researches. He was chosen secretary of
'he Royal Society in 1806, and president of the same
in 1820. He invented the reflecting goniometer, by



which the angles of crystals are measured, and the
camera lucida, (1812.) About 1802 he verified the laws
of double refraction in Iceland spar, announced by
Huyghens, and wrote a treatise "On the Oblique Re-
raction of Iceland Crystal." He acquired wealth by
the manufacture of platinum by an improved method,
laving been the first who reduced that metal into ingots
n a state of purity. About 1805 he discovered the

Woll9tonecraft,w661'stou-kraft, (MARY,) afterwards
MRS. GODWIN, a celebrated English authoress, born in
1759. There is some doubt as to the place of her birth ;
but her parents removed to the vicinity of London when
she was about sixteen years old. Owing to the poverty
of her family, and the violent temper of her father, her
early training, both moral and intellectual, was very
defective. Having by her own exertions fitted herself to
be a teacher, she opened a school at Islington in 1783,
in which she was assisted by two sisters and an intimate
friend. In 1786 she published her first work, entitled
"Thoughts on the Education of Daughters." She next
translated into English Salzmann's "Elements of Mo-
rality," and Lavater's "Physiognomy." In 1791 she
wrote an answer to Burke's " Reflections on the French
Revolution," which was soon followed by her " Vindi-
cation of the Rights of Woman." In 1792 she visited
Paris, where she wrote " A Moral and Historical View of
the French Revolution." About this time she formed an
unfortunate attachment to an American named Imlay,
and, in consequence of his desertion, twice attempted to
destroy herself. In 1795, having business in Norway,
she travelled in that country and in Sweden, and, on
her return, published " Letters from Norway." This
work shows great shrewdness and powers of observation,
and contains many fine descriptive passages. Mary
Wollstonecraft was married to Godwin, the celebrated
novelist, in 1796, and died in 1797, after giving birth
to a daughter, who became the wife of the poet Shelley.

WOLSELEY

WOOD



Wolseley, woolz'le, (Sir GARNET JOSEPH,) LORD, a
British general, was born at Golden Bridge House, near
Dublin, Ireland, June 4, 1833. He entered the army as
an ensign in 1852, and served with great distinction in
Kurmah, the Crimea, at Lucknow, in China, and in the
Manitoba rebellion of 1867, which last he suppressed.
He was knighted in 1870, and subsequently com-
manded in the Ashantee war, in Cape Colony and
Cyprus, was governor of Natal and the Transvaal, and
in 1882 won the victory of Tell-el-Kebir in Egypt.
For this he was gazetted full general and made a
baron. After the Soudan campaign of 1884-85 he
was created viscount, was appointed commander-in-
chief in Ireland in 1890, made field-marshal in 1894,
and succeeded the Duke of Cambridge as commander-
in-chief of the army in 1895. Lord Roberts suc-
ceeded him in this office in 1900. He was the author
of several works of literature.

Wplaey, wdol'ze, (THOMAS,) a celebrated English
courtier and cardinal, born at Ipswich in 1471. His
origin was rather obscure. According to a doubtful
tradition, he was the son of a butcher. He was educated
at Magdalene College, Oxford, where he obtained the
degree of B.A. at the early age of fifteen. He was elected
a Fellow of his college, was ordained a priest, and was
presented to the living of Lymington in 1500. Soon
after that date he became chaplain to Henry VII., and
was sent on a delicate mission to the emperor Maxi-
milian, which he performed with great celerity and suc-
cess. He obtained in 1508 the lucrative place of Dean
of Lincoln. Soon after the accession of Henry VIII.,
Wolsey's patron Bishop Fox procured his appointment
as royal almoner. Having excellent qualifications for a
courtier, he gained the special favour of the young king,
and was rapidly promoted. He became Canon of Wind-
sor in 151 1, Dean of York and Bishop of Tournay in
1513, Bishop of Lincoln in March, 1514, Archbishop of
York in September, 1514, and cardinal in 1515. About
the end of the last-named year he was appointed chan-
cellor. He was now the prime favourite and chief
minister of Henry VIII. In his style of living he dis-
played a princely magnificence. He had superior talents
for business, and understood the public interests, which
he seems to have promoted except when they interfered
with his ambition. His favour and influence were courted
by Charles V. and Francis I. when they became (1519)
competitors for the imperial crown. Wolsey aspired to
the papacy, and was a candidate for it at the death of Leo
X., in 1522. When he was defeated, he showed his re-
sentment against Charles V. because that monarch failed
So support his pretensions. He built a grand palace at
Hampton Court, which he presented to Henry VIII.

"The numerous enemies," says Hume, " whom Wol-
sey's sudden elevation, his aspiring character, and his
haughty deportment had raised him, served only to
rivet him faster in Henry's confidence. . . . That artful
prelate likewise, well acquainted with the king's impe-
rious temper, concealed from him the absolute ascendant
which he had acquired, and, while he secretly directed
all public councils, he ever pretended a blind submission
to the will and authority of his master." (" History of
England," vol. iii.) In 1523 he was appointed legate of
the pope for life. Wolsey fortified the king's scruples
in relation to his marriage witli Queen Catherine, partly
with a view of promoting a breach with Charles V. ; but
he lost the favour of Henry, probably because he failed
to gain the pope's consent to the divorce of Catherine.
The enmity of Anne Boleyn also contributed to his fall.
In October, 1529, the great seal was taken from him.
An indictment was laid against him that he had pro-
cured bulls from Rome, contrary to a statute of Richard
II. The court pronounced against him a sentence by
which his lands and goods were forfeited ; but Henry
granted him a pardon for all offences. He was sonn after
again arrested on a charge of treason ; but before his trial
began he died, at Leicester Abbey, in November, 1530.
