Cassiodori Senatoris Institutiones

£34.99

Product description

A rare and highly sought-after book of the famous and influential work of the Roman statesman and scholar, Cassiodorus. The text, in Latin, was written to guide the studies of both the "divine" and "secular" writings for the monks in the 'Vivarium' or monastery school, and focuses on the texts assumed to have been in the Vivarium's library. The first section of the Institutiones deals with Christian texts, while the second section deals with grammar, rhetoric, dialectic, arithmetic, music, geometry, and astronomy.
Preceding the Latin text is a lengthy introduction in English from R.A.B. Mynors, the British classical scholar.

The hardback book is in very good condition with a tight spine and clean pages. It comes in a dust jacket which is slightly chipped at the edges. Beneath the dust jacket the red boards are in very good condition and the title on the spine is in gilt lettering.
