-12. A Comedy, in the Italian language.

James Crichton, who on account of his extraor-
dinary endowments of body and mind was named
t4ie admirable Crichton, was born at Clunie in Perth-
shire, sometime between 1551 and 1560. He was
of the blood royal of Scotland, his mother being Eli-
zabeth Stuart of Beath, who was a descendant of Ro-
bert duke of Albany, the third son of Robert II.
king of Scotland. He studied philosophy in the'
university of St. Andrews, and had for his instructors
John Rutherford, Hepburn, Robertson, and Bucha

nan." Before he *as 20 years of age he had run through
all the circle of the sciences, and could speak and
write ten different languages in perfection : and be-
sides these, he cultivated himself in the highest de-
gree in riding, fencing, dancing, singing, and playing
upon all sorts of musical instruments. He went to
Paris, and caused bills to be stuck up on the gates
a all the halls, colleges, and schools of the univer-
sity, and before the doors of the most eminent lite-
rati in the city, inviting all those who were Well
versed in any science or art, to dispute with him in
the college of Navarre that day six weeks ; where he
would be ready to answer to whatever should be
proposed to him in any art or science ; and in any
of these twelve languages, Hebrew, Syriac, Arabic,
Greek, Latin, Spanish, French, Italian, English,
Dutch, Flemish, and Sclavonian; and this either in
prose or verse, at the pleasure of the disputant. The
disputation lasted from 9 in the morning till 6 at'
night, in which he acquitted himself to the astonish-
ment of all, and had a diamond ring and purse of
gold given him by the college, as a testimony of their
profound esleem for the rare qualities with which
the Almighty had endowed him. At Rome, Venice,
and Padua, he is said to have acted nearly in a simi-
lar way, and with equal success. He was at last
basely murdered by Vincentio de Gonzaga, son of
the duke of Mantua, to whom lie was preceptor.'
Such surprising accounts are given of the mental and
corporeal endowments of this celebrated Scotchman,
that some critics have seriously doubted the truth of

72 C R

the whole relation. Others, while they grant there,
was such a person, and allow he had considerable
endowments, yet treat the greater part of what is
related of him as fable. See Dr. Kippis, in the
JBiogr. Britan. Of his existence indeed there can
be no doubt, nor of his rare attainments; Aldus Ma-
nutius, who was intimately acquainted with him,
has put this part beyond controversy. See the piece
to his memory in vol. 2. p. 189 of this Dictionary.
Crichton was killed in the 32d (some say the 22d)
year of his age.

This is an abridgment of Bee's work, with the ad-
dition of many Critics, which Mr. Bee had not re-
ceived into his collection. Mr. Poole gives the
Critics, as his title implies, at one view : the different
opinions of the various commentators are brought
together, and by small letters intermingled with the
text ; their names are referred to in the margin.
But tins is not managed so as to preclude obscurity
and confusion. The work however has conside-
rable merit, and is now advancing in price. It
was reprinted at Utrecht in 1684, 5 vol. fol. with
some additions ; but the original work is still pre-
ferred.- Matthew Poo/e, the author, was a very-
celebrated English divide, born at York in 1624,
and died at Amsterdam in 1 679. He was a learned,
commentator, a good casuist, and a modest, gentle,
and pious man.

Cttsias was a Greek historian and physician, born

books, and a history of India, all of which are lost,
except a few fragments preserved by Photius, which
have been published in the above, and in other
works. He is generally allowed to have been a cre-
dulous fabulous author. He flourished about 400
years before the Christian aera.

Dr. Cudworth was born in Somerset in 1617, and
died at Cambridge in 1683. He has been accused
of leaning too much to the Platonists in his Intellec-
tual System. But has he done this farther than the
Platonists were right ? His Intellectual System is
a complete storehouse of ancient literature 5 and is
a work of the first merit in the republic of letters.
He is author of another excellent work on the Eter-
nal and immutable Nature of Vice and Virtue.

Quinti Curtii Epistolarum, libri v. 4to. Regii,

Of Quintus Curtius Rufus very little is known.
He probably flourished under Vespasian, about A. D.
.70. He has immortalized both himself 'and his hero
by his history of Alexander the Great. This work
was originally in 10 books ; but the two first, the end
of thejifth, and the beginning of the sixth, are now

C Y 81

lost. The style of Curtius, though rather flowery,
is allowed to be noble, elegant, and pure ; and his
reflections luminous, ingenious, and solid. But his
chronology and geography are indifferent. In de-
scribing the pompous march of Darius, he represents
him as seated on a car consecrated to Jupiter, and
adorned with the statues of the Roman gods ! as if
the Persians either reverenced or even knew Jupiter
or any of the Roman deities ! Some learned men
have considered the whole history as a very inge-
nious and well written Romance. Perhaps it would
be impossible, after a dispassionate reading of the
work, not to be of the same opinion.

Saint Cyprian sprung from an illustrious family in
Carthage, He was converted to the Christian reli-
gion by the ministry of a priest named Cecilius,
A. D. 246, and two years after he became bishop of
Carthage. In the Decian persecution he had his
head cut off, A. D. 258. Cyprian is one of the most
valuable of the. primitive fathers, especially in mat-
ters which concern the customs and discipline of the
primitive church. He is the most eloquent of the
Latin fathers * his style is in general pure, and his
reasoning strong and conclusive. It is but of little
importance to know, that St. Cyprian, as well as
Tertullian, was a straight-hair'd Black.

Saint Cyril succeeded his maternal uncle Theo-
philus in the see of Alexandria, A. D. 412; in
which office he continued till 444, when he died.
His style is inelegant, obscure, and desultory. He
is allowed to have been a very zealous defender of
the faith; but the faith has gained little credit from
such defenders ! Endeavouring to exterminate the
Jews from Alexandria, they formed a cabal, got the
governor Orestes on their side, made an attack on
the Christians, and slew many of them. The monks
of Nitria, hearing of the opposition the governor
and the Jews made to the patriarch, assembled in a
tumultuous manner, wounded the governor with
stones ; and supposing that the famous Ilypatia
(daughter of Theon, one of the most beautiful wo-
men, best mathematicians, and profound philoso-
phers of her age) had excited Orestes against the
patriarch, headed by a lector named Peter, they
way-laid her on her return to her own house, drag-
ged her to the Cesarean church, stripped her, and
beat her to death with potsherds ! Their savage
cruelty did not end here ; for they cut her in pieces,
and then burned the mangled body to ashes ! See
Fleury's Ecclesiastical History. " This barbarous
act," says the historian Socrates, " brought great
reproach both on St. Cyril and the whole church."
And well it might ; for it was an act that tigers and
incarnate demons alone could perpetrate.- 1 Ilypatia.
had composed many works in philosophy and ma-
thematics, which probably all shared the fate of the
amiable authoress. The reader will be pleased to

e y as

observe, that it was i\oi Christianity that committed
these and such like barbarous outrages ; but they were
-done by men, who to their savage brutalities added
the almost unpardonable crime of styling themselves
Christians I The Son of God did not come to de-
stroy men's lives, but to savo but many who have
called themselves his disciples, have not taken their
instructions from the benevolent Saviour of man-

Cyril of Jerusalem was born about A. D. 315,
and succeeded Maximus, as Bishop of that See, in
350. He was thrice deposed by the Arians, with
whom he had continual contests. He died A. D.
386. His 23 Catechesis are allowed to be the most
ancient and best digested Abridgment of the Chris-
tian doctrine. The eighteen first are addressed to
Catechumens, the other jive to the newly baptized.
Cyril's style is plain and simple, and very suitable to
the subjects he has chosen.

to the protestant doctrine. He was made patriarch'
of Alexandria, and afterwards of Constantinople in
1621. He was persecuted by the bishops and cler-
gy for preaching the Protestant doctrine, deprived
of his patriarchate, and banished to Rhodes. Some-
time after, he was recalled, and on publishing his
confession of faith, was again deposed and banished
to Tenedos in 1628. The Jesuits found means to
make the mind of the Ottoman Court evil affected
towards him, and after being seven times deposed,
