Condition Report

A scarce collective edition. It contains the second edition of the De incantationibus (pp. 1 - 325; first edition Basel 1556), in which Pomponazzi, the leading representative of Renaissance Aristotelianism, very daringly applied naturalistic explanations to seemingly miraculous events, including Christian miracles, and the first edition of the De fato (pp. 329 - 1015), the significant treatise on fate, free will and predestination. They are the largest works by the influential philosopher, and both were published posthumously by the physician and philosopher Gulielmo Gratarolo (1516 - 68), who settled in Basel after fleeing from Italy because of his religious beliefs.
