Vespasian, Roman emperor Featured Johannis Print

Vespasian, Roman emperor

Vespasian (9 AD-79 AD), Roman emperor. Vespasian was the ninth emperor of the Roman Empire, ascending to power after a year of civil wars and ruling for nearly 10 years from 69 AD until his death. This artwork is from a 1691 Dutch edition of a collection of works by the Roman historian Suetonius, best known for his 121 AD work 'De Vita Caesarum' (On the Life of the Caesars, or 'The Twelve Caesars'). The Latin text at bottom describes the emperor and names the engraver of this artwork as Joannes Schildius. The editor of the book was the German philologist Johannes G. Graevius (1622-1703)

1674 Animal Creation According to Genesis Featured Johannis Print

1674 Animal Creation According to Genesis

1674 Copperplate engraving, Creation of the birds, fishes and large marine life (Genesis 1. 20-23 Day 5) under the Hebrew divine word of God. "Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life ??? "), by M. de Vos (inv) and C.J. Visscher ( exc ) from the (very rare) Bible 'Theatrum Biblicum Hoc est historiae Sacrae -veteris et novi testamenti tabulis aeneis expressae", published by Nicolaum Johannis Piscatorum ( N.J. Visscher). This copper engraving was printed in 1674. The Association of Birds and Fishes is common in Biblical Hebrew and Pre-biblical texts - it has been suggested because flocks of birds were often seen near water or that birds were from "the heavenly ocean". This grouping therefore includes fishes, birds, sea mammals (seals, otters, whales) and reptiles (turtle foreground)
