The aim of the study is to show that Heinrich Kornmann’s Mons Veneris (1614) contains a translation of Lilio Giraldi’s mythological compendium De Dei Gentilium (1548). However, Kornmann is not a translator but rather a copyist, since his translation turns out to be an excerpt of the Heydenwelt (1554) by Johann Herold, who was the first to ever transfer Giraldi into German. To prove Kornmann’s dependency on Herold and Giraldi, the article elaborates on Kornmann’s strategies of adapting his models.
