The first complete edition of Methodius's 'The Banquet of Virgins' - selections had been published in 1644 at Paris - by the church father Saint Methodius, bishop of Olympus and then Tyre. Several of his other works survive as fragments, with this one, written around 300 AD and popular through the rest of late antiquity, the only one known in its entirety. A stylistic imitation of Plato's Symposium, except that the participants, a group of ten virgins, praise the state of virginity instead of love. The text is published in Greek with a parallel Latin translation.   Ref: 46400

Orosius, Paulus: (Havercamp, S., ed.:) Adversus Paganos historiarum libri septem, ut et apologeticus contra Pelagium de arbitrii libertate. Ad fidem MSS. et praesertim Cod. Langob. antiquiss. Bibliothecae Florentinae Mediceae S. Laurentii, adjectis integris notis Franc. Fabricii Marcodurani et Lud. Lautii [...] Lugduni Batavorum [Leiden]: apud Gerardum Potuliet, 1738. First edition. 4to., pp. [xxxviii], 634, [xxx]. Title in red and black with engraving of both sides of an ancient coin, numerous further engravings of coins in the text. Occasional light spots and smudges but generally clean, three library inkstamps to title-page verso with one slightly offset to first page of text. Contemporary vellum, title inked to spine, all edges red. Darkened, a bit grubby, small stain to upper board, endpapers smudgy with library code to front paste-down, but still a very good copy. Important edition of works of the 5th-cent. author and pupil of Augustine, Paulus Orosius, including his 'Histories', an "apologetic response to the pagan argument that the coming of Christianity had brought disaster to the world" (OCD). It was not surpassed textually until the nineteenth century. The publication is also attractive for the large quantity of numismatic evidence that is used to illustrate the commentary.
