ployed with success in diplomatic affairs. Died in 1772.

Lichtenstein, von, (ULRIC,) one of the early Ger-
man poets, was born about 1199. His principal poem,
entitled " Frauendienst," though possessing no great

Lichtwer, HKt'wer, (MAGNUS GOTTFRIED,) one ot
the most popular German fabulists, was born at Wurzen

Gellert, whom perhaps he surpasses in piquancy of
style and talent for narration. Died in 1783.

Ll-ciu'I-us, (or le-sin'e-us,) (FLAVIUS VALERIUS,)
(called by some writers Pub'lius Fla'viua Gale'riua
Valeria'nus Licinia'nus,) a Roman emperor, born in
Dacia about 263 A.D., was originallya peasant. He rose

Constantia, sister of Constantine the Great, and, having
defeated Maximin, became master of all the Eastern
provinces. A war soon ensued between him and Con-

rious for cruelty and other vices.

Li-cml-us Cal'vus, (CAIUS,) an eminent Roman
orator and poet, son of C. Licinius Macer, was born in
82 B.C. Cicero thought his style was too laboured, but
admitted that he had wit, judgment, and much learning.
His style was eulogized by Quintilian as grave, chaste,
and sometimes vehement. As a poet he was usually
ranked with Catullus, and was very popular. His works
are all lost except fragments of his poems, which con-
sisted of elegies and epigrams or lampoons. He died
about the age of thirty-five.

Li-cin'I-us Sto'lo, or, more fully, Ca'ius Licln'ius
Cal'vus Sto'lo, a Roman legislator, of plebeian family,
who effected important changes in the constitution of
Rome. In 375 B.C., he and his friend L. Sextius La-
teranus were chosen tribunes of the people, and pro-
posed the enactment of these laws : 1st. That in future
one of the two consuls chosen annually should be a ple-
beian, and that no more military tribunes should be
appointed ; 2d. That no citizen should possess more
than five hundred acres (jugtra) of public land. These
innovations were strenuously resisted by the patricians
for about ten years, a period of anarchy, during which
Camillus was chosen dictator. The land in question
had been acquired by conquest, and had been appro-
priated by the patricians. The laws above named were
passed in 366, and Licinius was elected consul in 364
B.C. He was re-elected in 360, and was fined ten thou-
sand asses in 356 for the violation of his own agrarian
law.

tTniversity of Bonn in 1819, and in 1822 went to Paris, ;
where he became acquainted with Humboldt and Gay-
Lussac. Favoured by the influence of Humboldt, Liebig
-ibtained in 1824 the appointment of professor of chem-
istry in the University of Giessen. He founded there
the first model laboratory of Germany, which became
very celebrated and made that university the central
point of attraction to the chemical students of Europe.
Although his services have been great in every depart-
ment of chemical science, he owes his celebrity chiefly
to his discoveries in organic chemistry. He produced
in 1840 an important work entitled "Organic Chem-
istry in its Application to Agriculture and Physiology,"
("Die organische Chemie in ihrer Anwendung auf
Agricultur und Physiologic.") His principal works,
besides the above, are "Animal Chemistry, or Chemistry
in its Application to Physiology and Pathology," (1842,)
"Researches on the Chemistry of Food," (1849,) and
a "Dictionary of Chemistry," (5 vols., 1837-51,) in
which he was assisted by Wohler. He received the title
of baron in 1845, and accepted the chair of chemistry
at Munich in 1852. In 1848 Liebig and Professor
Kopp began to issue an annual report on the progress
of chemistry. His " Familiar Letters on Chemistry"
(1844) are much admired, and are well adapted to
render the science popular. His principal works above
named have been translated into English and French.
Died April 18, 1873.

Liebrecht, (KF.l.ix,) a German folk-lorist, born

When his friends made efforts to restore him to citizen-
ship, they were opposed by Tubero, who became his
public accuser in a trial before the dictator, in 45 or 46
B.C. On this occasion Cicero pronounced his admirable
oration "Pro Ligario." Plutarch informs us that Caesar
had resolved to condemn Ligarius, but that in the
course of the speech his colour often changed, his frame
trembled, and a verdict of acquittal was obtained from
him through the transcendent powers of the orator.

Light'foot, (JOHN,) an English divine, eminent as a
biblical commentator, was born in Staffordshire in 1602.
He was an excellent Hebrew scholar. In 1630 he be-
came rector of Ashley, and in 1642 obtained the living ot
