DemostJumes, the famous Athenian orator, was
born at Athens, A. A. C. 38 1 . He lost his father at
7 years of age ; and was placed under the conduct
of guardians, who robbed him of his substance, and
neglected his education. Demosthenes soon re-
paired this loss by his extraordinary abilities. He
became the disciple of Isaeus and Plato, and studied
the Orations of Isocrates. At the age of 17, he gave
a proof of his eloquence and abilities against his
guardians, from whom he recovered the greatest



T> 1 III

part of his estate. His rising talents were, however,
impeded by various natural defects, but which he
overcame by dint of resolution and unwearied atten-
tion. He declaimed by the sea shore, that he might
be used to the noise of a tumultuous assembly ; and
with pebbles in his mouth, that he might correct a
defect in his speech. He practised at home with a
naked sword hanging over his shoulder, that he
might check an ungraceful motion to which he was
subject. He confined himself in a subterraneous
cave, to devote himself more closely to study ; and
to check all inclination to appear in public, he shaved
one half of his head. In this solitary retirement,
by the help of a glimmering lamp, he composed the
greatest part of his orations, which have since been
the admiration of all ages. His abilities as an orator
raised him to consequence at Athens, and he was
soon placed at the head of government. In this
public capacity he roused his countrymen from their
indolence, and animated them against the encroach-
ments of Philip of Macedonia. In the battle of
Cheronaea, however, his eloquence could not supply
the want of courage, and he saved his life by flight.
After the death of Philip, he declared himself warm-
ly against his son Alexander ; when the Macedo-
nians demanded of the Athenians their orators, De-
mosthenes reminded his countrymen of the fable of
the sheep which delivered up their dogs to the
wolves. By the prevalence of party, however, he
was forced to retire to Trcezen in yEgina, where, it
is said, he lived with more effeminacy than heroism*
L2



112 D E

When Antipater made war against Greece, after the
death of Alexander, Demosthenes was publicly re-
called from his exile, and a galley was sent to fetch
him from JEgina. His return was attended with
much splendour, and all the citizens crowded at the
Pirasus to see him land. But his triumph and po-
pularity were short. Antipater and Craterus were
near Athens, and demanded all the orators to be de-
livered up into their hands. Demosthenes fled to
the temple of Neptune in Calauria : when he saw
no hopes of safety, he took a dose of poison, which ,
he always carried in a quill, and expired on the day
that the Thesmophoria were celebrated, A. A. C.
322. The Athenians raised a brazen statue to his
honour, with a suitable inscription. Demosthenes
has been deservedly called the prince of orator.
Indeed no orator had ever a finer field than De-
mosthenes in his Olynthiacs and Philippics, which .
are his capital orations; and undoubtedly to the
greatness of the subject, and to that integrity and
public spirit which breathe in them, they owe a
large portion of their merit. The subject is, to ex-
cite the indignation of his countrymen against Phi-
lip of Macedon, the public enemy of the liberties of
Greece ; and to guard them against the treacherous
measures by which that crafty tyrant endeavoured
to lull them into a neglect of their danger. Cicero
calls him a perfect model, and such as he himself
wished to be. These two great princes of eloquenc t
have been often compared together ; but the judg-
ment htsitates to which to give the preference. ,



The Archbishop of Cambray, however, seems- to
have stated their merits with great justice and per-
spicuity in his Reflections ion Rhetoric and Poetry '.
" I do not hesitate (says he) to declare, that I think
Demosthenes superior to Cicero. I am persuaded
no one can admire Cicero more than I do. He
adorns whatever he attempts. He does honour to
language. He disposes of words in a manner pecu-
liar to himself. His style has great variety of cha-
racter. Whenever he pleases, he is even concise
and vehement ; for instance, against Catiline, against
Verres, against Anthony. But ornament is too vi-
sible in his writings. His art is wonderful, but it
is perceived. When the orator is providing for the
safety of the republic, he forgets not himself, nor
permits others to forget him. Demosthenes seems
to escape from himself, and to see nothing but his
country. He seeks not elegance of expression ; un-
sought for, he possesses it. He is superior to admi-
ration. He makes use of language, as a modest
man does of dress, only to cover him. He thunders,
he lightens. He is a torrent which carries every
thing before it. We cannot criticise, because we are
not ourselves. His subject enchains our attention,
and makes us forget his language. We lose him
from our sight : Philip alone occupies our minds. I
am delighted with both these orators ; but I confess
that I am less affected by the infinite art and mag-
nificent eloquence of Cicero, than by the rapid sim-
plicity of Demosthenes." Encyclop. Pctthen.

Christ. He was a celebrated philosopher, historian, -

of Aristotle's disciples. He wrote a work in 3 books,
on the Republic of Sparta, which the magistrates
caused to be read publicly every year, for the in-
struction of the young Spartans.

Latin. Dictionaries.

. The first book of this kind is the Catholicon
of Johannes Balbus, commonly called Johannes del
Janua, or Jannensis, from his country : it was re-,
markable from its appearing in the very infancy of
printing, viz. 1460. See Catholicon. Next to
tliis stands Johannes.de Garlandio, an Englishman,
who flourished under Harold, about the year 1040;
he was a great grammarian, chymist, mathematician,
and divine : he wrote a book about words synony-
mous and equivocal, which was printed at Cologne
in 1490, and again at London by Richard Pynson .
in 1496: he wrote besides Dictionarium Akhymis
ticum, which I cannot find was ever printed. The
preface to Stephen's Thesaurus, London Edition,
mentions several, which I think useless to record
here, as their works have been superseded by better
However, I shall not omit Johannes Tortellius of
Arezza, and his work, which was a kind of gram-
matical commentaries, and received due applause.
Junianus Mains, a Neapolitan, follows Tortellius;
he had a great reputation for his skill in Latin, and;
ether languages ; his 1 Dictionary was first printed at ;
Naples, in folio, in .1480. After him, we have^n

account of the famous John Reuchlin, or Capnio,
who was the author of a dictionary much admired
in those times, but tainted, as Erasmus observes,
with the barbarism which then prevailed Nicolaus
Perottus, archbishop of Siponto, whom his contem-
poraries have commended as a man of great learn -
ing, and perfectly acquainted with the Latin tongue:
he wrote Commentaries, or rather Scholia, on Mar-
tial ; to which he gave the title of Cornucopia ;
wherein he explained the nature of the Latin phra-
ses, and the proper significations of words. From
him Calepinus, who is so well known to the world,
took most of those things which have raised his re-
putation to such a height. His work has run thro*
a great number of Editions j but the first, which was
in folio, printed in the year 1502, is become very
scarce: See Calepint.

After Calepine's Lexicon is placed Nizolius's The-
saurus Ciceronianus, or a Dictionary of all the words
contained in that author, explaining almost all the,
elegancies in the Latin tongue. It was printed at
Basil, in folio, 1530, and, 4to. 1537. It afterwards ,
run through many Editions, being increased by the .
industry of various editors until 1513, when M. Lu-
cius, Professor of Basil, published it in 2 vol. fol. un-
der the title Thesaurus Lingua Latina Bipartitus,
containing also a collection of words from other wri-
ters. Robert Stephens, the most learned printer of
his time, follows according to date. His Thesaurus
is one of the greatest proofs of his judicious and in-
defatigable labour. It has gone through several



US D T

Editions : the last the author lived to see, was the
famous one of Lyons, 1573, 4 vol. fol. Many Dic-
tionary compilers have raised up piles inscribed with
their own names out of the materials they stole from
Stephens' work ; particularly CceMus Secundus Curio,
who, disliking the words Thesaurus et Dictionarium,
devised a new title, and published at Basil, 1576, in
3 vol. fcl. Thesaurus Lingua Latina, sive Forum
Romanum. Theodosius Trebcllius was the author
of Prompt uarium Lingua Lati?ia, 1569 ; of which
Robert Stephens himself complained, as of a book
taken out of his, and shews in what manner the alte-
rations had been made, the better to disguise it.
But the following work of Stephen Dolet, or Doletus,
must be excepted from the general censure of pla-
giarism.

Steph. Doleti Commentarii Linguae Latina?, Lugd.
1536 38, 2 vol. fol. This is allowed to be a mas-
ter-piece of typographical excellence, and is very
scarce and very dear. See Doleti.

Hitherto the Latin Lexicon writers, from Perotl
downwards, kept nearly in the same road, and con-
sidered the vast collections of words they made
much in the same light, till Basil Faber arose, and
became the founder, as it were, of a new school ;
for he, disdaining to tread the same common tract
with those who had explained Latin words to the
capacities of children only, resolved to consider that
language critically, which put him on searching into,
and illustrating the terms made use of in arts, trades*
sciences, &c. confirming what he advanced by many



D I 119

and apposite examples, together with apophthegms,
short histories, and such extracts as could stand for
authorities.

In England learning made but slow advances till'
near the middle of the 16th centuty. The first La*
tin and English Dictionary published here, was that
by Sir Thomas Elliot, a learned knight in the court
of king Henry VIII. who published Dktionarium
Latino-Angl. in folio, A. D. 1541 ; which was af-
terwards revised, and with the addition of 33,000
words, sent forth in 1552, by Thomas Cooper of
Oxford, afterwards advanced to the See of Win-
chester by queen Elizabeth, who again, in 1514, put
forth this book, under the title of Elliots Biblic-
theca Opera et industria Thoma Cooperi Magda*
lensis. After these came a crowd of authors, who
drew their labours into a narrower compass, as Tho-
mas ThoviasiuSy whose book was very much im-
proved by Philemon Holland ; John Rider > Thomas
Holy oak) for de sacra SuercuJ Elisha Cole, Francis
Gouldman, of Christ's College in Cambridge, who
served himself of all that had gone before ; so did
Adam Littleton, and the author of the Cambridge
Dictionary, which is now but in small esteem;
though this author had the advantage of the famous
John Milton* s collections, whose knowledge in this
way was certainly very extensive.

Littleton's Dictionary is still looked upon as a
useful book : the best Edition is 1723, and the last
1735.

In 1736 Aimworth published the first Edition of



.

of his Dictionary, 4to. which is dedicated to Dr.
Mead. It has since gone through the hands of
various editors, with improvements ; particularly
Dr. Ward, professor of Gresham College ; Dr. Pa-
trick, of the Charter-house ? the Rev. Mr. Young,
Mr. Thomas, and others. The Rev . Dr. Morell
has published several Editions, with enlarged and
useful improvements ; the best of which is dated
1783. See Ains worth.
