Constantine Lascaris was a native of Constanti-
nople, from which he fled in 1453, when it was con-
quered by the Turks. He came into Italy, and taught
the belles lettres successively at Milan, Naples, and
Messina. From his school Cardinal Bembo and
other illustrious men proceeded. He left his library
to the senate of Messina, which had in 1465 ho-
noured him with the right of citizenship. His Greek
grammar is deservedly esteemed. It is more clear,
methodic, ample, and useful, than that of Theodore
Copa et Moretus. See Virgil.

libri, 8vo. et 12mo. This work has been much
used in schools for the instruction of youth in the
Latin tongue. It is the first book put into the hands
of children after having gone through the Latin
Grammar. It has gone through a vast number of
editions ; but is now less used than formerly. 2u.
Has any thing, better calculated to answer the end,
been put in its place? The author, Mathurin Cor-
dier, was born in Normandy about A. D. 1480, and
died in 1565. He was a learned and pious man, of
the Calvinistic persuasion. He also published Cato's
Distichs, with a French translation.
Corinnus, a Greek heroic poet, according to
Suidas more ancient than Homer. He is said to
have been the disciple of Palamedes, and to have
written a poem on the Siege of Troy, and one on
the war oiDardanus with the Faphlagonians It Is
said that Homer profited much by this work, which
the author wrote in the Doric letters invented by Pa-
lamedes. if this account be true, it casts some light
oh the Iliad ; for it cannot be supposed that so
finished a poem was the first essay of this kind. It is
on account of this circumstance that his name is in-
troduced here. See the article Ko^mo? in Suidas.

Anthony Cornellius, the author of this tract, was
a lawyer, in Auvergne, about the beginning of the
16th century. When his work made its first ap-
pearance, it was decried as a monster of atheism,
and was so completely suppressed, that scarcely a
copy of it is to be found, even in the most curious
and select libraries. Several think the work was
designed to sap the foundation of religion ; but it is
very likely the author only designed to ridicule and
expose the absurd and horrible doctrine of infant
damnation^ so repugnant to the nature of God and
the gospel of his Son. The book contains about 70

Cornelius Nepos was the first Classic published
in the Russian Empire. It was done at Moscow in
the year 1762.
Connected with Fl. Mallii Theodori Liber de
Metrisy a Heusingero, 8vo. Lugd. Bat. 1766, are
found Cornelii Ncpotis Fragment a Guelpherbytina.
Cornelius Nepos was born at Hostilia, near Ve-
rona, in the reign of Julius Caesar, and lived till the
6th year of Augustus, about the year of Rome 716.
He was an intimate friend of Cicero and Alticus.
He wrote several things, which are all lost, except
'* The Lives of illustrious Greek and Roman Gene-
rals" This work was for a long time attributed to
JEmilius Probus, and several Editions of the work
were published under his name. The Editors were
probably deceived by an Epigram in the ms. pre-
sented to Theodosius, in which were the following
Si rogat auctorem, me sciat esse probum.
The learned critic, Andrew Scotus, was the first
who restored the work to its genuine author. He
also collected some fragments of the lost works of
this historian, which may be found in several of the
above Editions. The original of this work was writ-
ten by Tragus Pompeius in 44 books, and contained
a history of the world from the creation till the time
of Augustus. This voluminous wrok Justin abridged,
taking a selection from each of the 44 books, and
C O 6t
preserving the number and order of the books of the
original in his own work. The abridgment was
read and prized, and the original neglected, and in
the end irrecoverably lost. The work of Justin is
allowed to be written with all that elegance and pre-
cision which characterizes the writings of the Au-
gustan age. He gives a pleasing colouring to the
most simple facts. His arrangement is regular and
perspicuous, and his reflections new, striking, and
always promotive of virtue. But, like other his-
torians, he can only be trusted while relating those
facts with which he had a personal acquaintance, or
were near to the times in which he lived. His account
of the Jews, lib. xxxvi. c. 1 1 , &c. is sufficient to shew
that every page should be read with extreme caution.

whose real name was Cornrillc de la 2 i icrre t was a
Jesuit, born at Liege in 1566, and died at Rome iff
1637, aged 71 years.

John Baptist Coteleriiis (Cotelier) was born at
Nismes, in 1 629. He was Batchelor of the Sorbon-
he, and Greek professor in the royal college. At
12 years of age he could translate the Hebrew Bible
with great facility, and was perfect master of Eu-
clid's Elements. He Was one of the most learned
men of his time, and a pattern of uprightness, gen-
tleness, and piety. He died in Paris, Aug. 12, 1686,
leaving nine volumes folio of mss. containing ex-
tracts from the primitive fathers, and different eccle-
siastical authors, with notes. These volumes were
deposited in the late king's library. His Patres

John Crell was a famous Socinian divine, born at

He published a Commentary on parts of the New
Testament, and some pieces on Morality, in which
he endeavours to prove, that there are certain easel
in which husbands should beat their wives. After
this, it is not supposed he made any female converts
to the doctrine of Socinus.
