(Catalog of Ecclesiastical Writers) – In the Latin language. By Johannes Trithemius.
Cologne, Peter Quentell, 1531.
Johannes Trithemius born Johann Heidenberg, was a German Benedictine abbot and a polymath who was active in the German Renaissance as a lexicographer, chronicler, cryptographer, and occultist. He had considerable influence on the development of early modern and modern occultism. His students included Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa and Paracelsus. Catalogus Scriptorum Ecclesiasticorum represents an index of Christian Latin authors. The list is in alphabetical order and each entry gives information on the author’s biography and bibliography. Even if it’s published nearly five centuries ago, it still represents an important reference source for many medieval literature historians.
