Della risurrettione de' morti.
[Paolo Manuzio, i.e., Aldine Press], 1556. Sole Aldine edition of any work by or attributed to this second-century Christian apologist, and the first edition of this text in any vernacular language. De resurrectione mortuorum is the first complete exposition of the doctrine in Christian literature on the perpetuation of the life of body and soul. Scholars have questioned whether De resurrectione is by Athenagoras, suggesting it is from the pen of some unidentified 4th-century author: They have noted the use of at least one term not widely known before the time of Origen. The translation is by Girolamo Falletti (ca. 1518-64) who adds his oration on the birth of Christ. The publisher, identified by Renouard as Paolo Manuzio, is not given on title-page and the book has no colophon. => The text is handsomely printed, with wide margins. Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.
