Matthias Fraucowitz, surnamed Flaccus lllyri-
cus, was born at Albano in Il/yria, in the year 1520.
He studied under Luther and Melancthon, and be-
came a most zealous defender of the protestant faith,
and a most formidable enemy to the Church of
Rome. He had a principal part in composing the
Centurite Magdeburgenses. Some of the Catholic
writers affect to despise this author ; but their party,
however, has taken care to suppress his works ; so
that almost the whole of them is remarkably scarce.
The protestants, on the other hand, do not approve
f his spirit. He was too violent : and bad tempers,



F L 249

manifesting themselves in obloquy and reproachful
language, are no credit to any cause. His grand
object was, to prove that Popery was a diabolic in-
vention, and that the Pope of Rome is the devil's
vicegerent. This author died at Frankfort in 1575,
aged 55 years.

added to these by later astronomers, particularly La
Lande.

a Philippo Beroaldo, 4to. Parmae, Steph.

Corallus, sine anno. Some have supposed this
work to have been printed in 1473, because done
with the same types used by this printer in his Edi-
tion of Catullus printed in 1473; but the learned
P. Ajfb, in his Memorie sulla Typographia Par-
mense, 4to. Parma, 1791, having compared this Edi-
tion of Florus with the Pliny published by Beroal-
lus in 1 476, found they were both done with the
same characters, and probably in the same year.
This Edition sold at the Pinellian sale for 2l. 5s.

Of Philip Beroaldus, whose name we so often,
meet with in ancient Editions of the Classics, it may-
be necessary to state, that he was born at Bologna, of
a nobie family, in 1453. He taught school in his na-
tive place till the end of 1414, and was held in high



252 F L

esteem for his learning ; but his moral character
was of the most profligate kind. He loved, says
his biographer, the pleasures of the table : that is,
in plain English, he was a glutton and a drunkard.
He was also passionately fond of gaming, and lost
all he possessed in this execrable employment.
Added to all this, he had an excessive fondness for
women ; and, says Bruysset, riennelui coutoit pour
parvenir au but de ses desirs. He stuck at nothing
to accomplish his criminal purposes. At last he got
married to a prudent, industrious, and amiable wo-
man, who knew how to attract his affections by her
gentle and obliging conduct. The consequence was,
Beroaldus soon became a totally changed man. Dis-
sipation, riot, and excess, were completely banished
from his heart and dwelling, and he became a man
whose moral conduct was of the most exemplary
kind ; and this character he maintained till his death,
which happened in 1 505. His case is a farther proof
of the wise man's assertion : A prudent wife is from
the Lord, and he that findeth such an one,findetk
a good thing. A collection of his works was pub-
lished in 1507, and 1513, 2 vols. 4to.

Lucius Julius Annaus Floras was of the Anna?-
an family, from which also sprang Seneca and Lu-
can. About 200 years after Augustus, he composed
his Epitome of the Roman history in 14 books,
which may be rather considered a panegyric on
tire Roman people than a connected history. His
style is allowed to be on the whole elegant, but too
flowery. Florus was a poet as well as an historian :
and Spartian tells us, that the emperor Adrian and
he made verses against each other; and to judge
from what remains of their doggrel ting-tang, nei-
ther of them seems to have understood much of
the poet's art. When Ampelius lived is uncertain,
but it must have been after the time of Trajan.
His Liber Memorials vyas first published with Flo-

different Editions of the above author, but never,
I believe, separately.

Drepanius Floras was deacon of the church of

a piece on predestination, another on the canon of
the mass, and a commentary on some of St. Paul's
Epistles. His works may be found in the Biblio-

Robert Fludd was born at Mill-gate in Kent, in

ber of the College of Physicians in London, and was
surnamed the Searcher, because of his various and
deep researches in Philosophy, Alchymy, Medicine,
Mathematics, &c. but the world has received very
little benefit from his lucubrations, his writings being
too dark and mysterious to be understood by com-
mon people. His opinions were thought worthy of
a serious confutation by GassendL The doctrine of
Animal Magnetism is supposed to have been derived
from Fludd's works.

Venantius Honorius Clementianus Fortunatus
was bishop of Poictiers, born in Italy, near to Tre-
visa, some time in the 6th century. He studied first
at Ravenna, and then went to Tours, where he be-
came acquainted with Gregory, bishop of that place.
He was afterwards taken into the friendship of Sige~
bert I. and became secretary to his queen, Hade-
gonde. Many of his poetic productions "are owing
to his intimacy with this princess, and Agnes abbess
of St. Croix, into which monastery Radegonde had



F O 261

retired. Calumny said the intimacy between Fortu-
natus and the queen was too great, because she
ften sent him little presents, which he repaid with
complimentary verses, impromptu's, &c. some of
which are scarcely so very grave as is consistent
with the austerity of the episcopal character , but they
are such as may well be supposed to pass very inno-
cently among friends.

Stephen Fourmont, the author of these works, was
an astonishing genius, born at Herbelai, near Paris,
in 1683. He had a prodigious memoiy, and, when
but a lad at school, learned all the Greek roots in
the Port Royal Grammar so perfectly by heart, that
he could repeat them correctly, either backwards
or forwards, While at school he wrote Les Ratines
tie la langue Laiine mises en vers Francois, a work
which would have done honour to a master. He
was eminent in Greek, Persian, Syriae, Arabic, He-
brew, and even Chinese. He is author also of a va-
luable French work, entitled, Reflexions critiques sur
les hisloires des anciens peuples jusques au terns de
Cyrus, Parisiis, 1735, 2 vol. 4to. He died at Paris
in 1745.

Jcrom Fracastor was born at Verona, about

obliged to cut them asunder. While an infant, his
mother was kilted by lightning, while she held him
in her arms, but he escaped without any injury ! He
was a man of great learning and gentleness of man-
ners, and is chiefly remarkable for the elegance with



26* F R

which he wrote in Latin. His Poem, entitled, Sy-
philis sive de Morbo Gallico, is written with great
ease, taste, and elegance, on the model of Virgil's
Georgics ; and though the subject he has chosen is
of the most abominable kind, yet he has treated it in
a very decent manner, not unworthy even of Virgil
himself.

de Palingenesis, sive Resuscitatione

artificiali Plantarum, Hominum, et Animalium e suis
Cineribus ; a Christ. Neliringio revisus. Halae. 1717,
4to. A singular and curious work, in which the
author solidly demonstrates the possibility of the
future resurrection of the body.

George Franck de Frankenau was a physician,
born at Naiimburg in 1643. When only 18 years
of age he was created -poet laureat at Jena ; and he
merited that honour by his talent for correct poetical
compositions in German, Latin, Greek, and Hebrew.
He was afterwards professor of medicine at Heidel-
burg and Wittemburg. Christian V. king of Den-
mark, made him his physician and aulic counsellor :
and the emperor Leopold made him count palatine
in 1692. He died in 1704.
