De Sanctorum Martyrum Cruciatibus Ant. Gal-

accuratissime tabellis expressa describuntur, Romae,

work was originally published in Italian with the
following title, Trattato degli Jnstrumenti di Mar-
tirio, Boma y 1591, 4to. This Edition is very valu-
able on account of the designs of Tempesta with
which it is adorned. The above Latin translation is
the best of this work; all others are of small value.

Theodore Gaza was one of those learned Greeks,
who transplanted the Grecian arts into Italy, after the
taking of Constantinople in 1453. He was originally
of Thessalonica. Cardinal Bessarion befriended him
much, and procured him a benefice in Calabria. He
died at Rome in 1475, aged 80 years. His Gram-
mar is highly spoken of by critics; and perhaps
they are the only persons who can profit by it ; as it
is certainly too obscure for beginners.

George Gemistus Pleiho, was a Greek Platonian.
philosopher, who took refuge in Florence after
the taking of Constantinople by the Turks. He
assisted at the Council of Florence in 1438, and
distinguished himself much by the extent of his
knowledge and his prudent conduct. It is said he
was nearly 100 years old when he died. He is au-
thor of a Commentai*y en the magical oracles o/Zo-

which a great depth of erudition is displayed. He
had a profound acquaintance with Grecian history,

events which succeeded the battle of Manthtea. He

Gennadlus was at first called Georgius Scholar is ;
he was made patriarch of Constantinople after it
was taken by the Turks in 1453, and was invested
with that office by Mahomet II. who, after the cus-
tom of the Greek emperors, put the pastoral staff
in his hand : but seeing the troubles increase, he ab-
dicated in 1458, and retired to a monastery in Ma-
cedonia, where he died about A. D. 1460. He is
allowed to have been one of the most learned Greeks
in the 15th century. Previous to the taking of Con-
stantinople he was judge-general of the Greeks, se-
tary to the Emperor, and his preacher in ordinary.

Gerbert was born in Auvergne, and became suc-
cessively archbishop of Reims, archbishop of Raven-
na, and lastly bishop of bishops, or pope of Rome,
under the name of Sylvester II. A, D. 999. Oa
this account a singular verse was made.

Transit ab R. Gerbertus ad P. Jit Papa regens R.
The three 72's mark his three episcopal residences,
Reims, Ravenna, and Rome. He was the first
Frenchman that was honoured with S. Peter's chair.
Gerbert was the most learned man of his time. He
was a great lover and collector of books, cultivated
all the arts and sciences, and was the first after Boe-
thins, who applied himself to mathematical studies.
In 1 64$, his tomb was discovered in the Latran. He
was in his pontifical habit, with his tiara on his head.
The body seemed in perfect preservation, but when
it was touched it fell all into dust! nothing remained
but his ring and a silver cross. Sic transit gloria

Some Epigrams, attributed to Germanicus, are
found in the Poematia vetera, a Petro Pilhceo,

Casar Germanicus was son of Drusus and the
virtuous Antonio, niece of Augustus. He was at
first qucestor, and afterwards consul, A. D. J 2. He
defeated and subdued the Germans ; whence he was
styled Germanicus. It is said that Tiberius his un-
cle, jealous of his great successes, caused Piso to
poison him at Daphne. He was a wise, prudent,
and amiable man, a very skilful captain, and an ele-
gant scholar. By his wife Agrippina he had nine
children, one of whom was Caligula, a son utterly
unworthy of such a father. He died in the 34th
year of , his age.

G E 295

But some suppose him to be an imaginary author.
The controversy concerning the true author of the
Imitation of Christ, generally ascribed to Thomas a
Kempis, and by some to Gerson, has led the Kern-
pisians to call even the existence of Gerson into
question Indeed there is no proof sufficient to con-
vince a sceptic on this subject, that either Gers$n or
Kempis is the real author. The holy man who
wrote it, probably never owned it, being contented
with that honour that comes from God : and those
who first discovered it were led to attribute it to cer-
tain holy persons who had lived near those times,
and whom, from their exalted piety, they supposed
capable of writing so excellent a work.

Conrad Gesner, surnamed the German Pliny,
was born at Zurich in 1 5 1 6 . He professed medicine
and philosophy with great reputation. After having
spent his whole life in the cultivation of literature,
he wished to finish his days among his books. Feel-
ing himself attacked with the plague, he desired to
be carried into his study where he expired, Dec.
22, 1569, in the 49th year of his life. The follow-
ing epitaph was made for him.

Ingenio vivens naturam vicerat omnem ;
Natura victus conditur hoc tumulo.
Bern says, " Gesner possessed all the knowledge
which Pliny and Varro shared between them."
This is very good ;.but Gesner probably would have
known less than either, had not Pliny and Varro both
wrote before him. To him we owe the first idea
of determining the genera of plants by their flowers,
