Chapter Summary

The Swiss humanist Heinrich Loriti (1488-1563), whose Latin name was Henricus Glareanus, came from Mollis in the Canton of Glarus. In 1540 Michael Isengrin published Glareanus's chronology and his Annotationes on Livy as an independent work. Glareanus's students annotated the copies of this work that is discussed in this chapter. The first edition of Glareanus's Livy (1531) includes a letter of dedication from Erasmus to the young English courtier and future patron of learning Charles Mountjoy. In 1532, Glareanus explained the use of history in the preface to his edition of Dionysius of Halicarnassus's Antiquitates romanae. The Princeton copy belonged to a student from Feldkirch named Gabriel Hummelberg II. Hummelberg's copy of Glareanus's Annotationes and chronological tables now resides in Princeton's Firestone Library. Glareanus also drew the form of his work from Eusebius.
