Index Aureliensis, 130.555; VD-16, C-413; F. Baron, ed., Joachim Camerarius (1500-1574). Beiträge zur Geschichte des Humanismus im Zeitalter der Reformation, (München, 1978), p. 250, no. 171; C.A. Staswick, Joachim Camerarius and the Republic of Letters in the Age of Reformation,(Diss., Berkeley, CA, 1992), pp. 299-301.

 

FIRST EDITION of an important part of Camerarius' correspondence published by his sons Joachim the Younger (1534-1598), physician and botanist, and Philip (1537-1624), professor of law at Altdorf.

The volume, which opens with a dedication to Joachim Ernest of Anhalt dated from Nuremberg, December 21, 1582, contains 446 letters. It is provided with an index of the over fifty recipients and an index of names appearing in the letters. A second volume, also published by Camerarius' sons, appeared at Frankfurt/Main in 1595.

The greatest number of letters (135) are addressed to the Reformer of Nürnberg, Hieronymus Baumgartner (1498-1565), who was also for a longer period major of that city (cf. E. van Hout, Zum Briefwechsel des älteren Hieronymus Baumgartner, Bonn 1877, passim).

Fifty-nine letters are addressed to Christoph von Carlowitz (1507-1578), a notable representative of that group of German politicians committed to the ideals of Erasmus. He was most influential under the Duke and Elector Maurice of Saxony and was also employed on many domestic assignments and foreign missions by the Elector Augustus of Saxony, as well as the emperors Ferdinand I and Maximilian II (cf. T. Woitkowitz, Die Briefe von Joachim Camerarius d. Ä. an Christoph von Karlowitz bis zum Jahr 1553, Stuttgart, 2003, passim, esp. pp. 27-32).

To Hieronymus Wolf (1516-1580) are addressed forty-two letters. Wolf was a teacher, an editor and translator of ancient Greek authors for the Basel printer Johannes Oporin, librarian to Hans Jakob Fugger and the city of Augsburg.

Georg Fabricius (1516-1571), poet, historian and archaeologist is the recipient of thirty-one letters, and the addressees of more than ten letters were the poet Helius Eobanus Hessus, Hieronymus Herold, a Nuremberg physician, Hermann von Neuenahr, humanist and chancellor of the University of Cologne, and Johannes Stigel, poet and professor of rhetoric at the University of Jena.

Joachim Camerarius, a native of Bamberg, was the son of a nobleman, episcopal official and councillor of Bamberg in Franconia. He studied at Leipzig and Erfurt. In 1521, after receiving a master of arts degree, he went to Wittenberg, where his close and lasting friendship with Philipp Melanchthon developed, and where he was quickly drawn into the orbit of Luther, whose cause he espoused and supported throughout his life.

He then pursued a successful academic career. In 1526 he became rector of the newly founded Latin school in Nuremberg. Attending the diet of Augsburg with Melanchthon in 1530, he faced the Catholic theologians in a basically conciliatory spirit. In 1535 he was asked to help to reorganize the University of Tübingen, where he stayed until 1541. Thereafter he joined the University of Leipzig and to the end of his life served recurrently as dean of arts and rector.

A devoted classical scholar, Camerarius edited, annotated and translated many ancient authors, among them Homer, Sophocles, Cicero, and Plautus. He also wrote works on grammar and style, and numerous poems. He assisted Albrecht Dürer in the publication of some of his books and composed a poem on the occasion of his death. Indeed, contemporaries regarded Camerarius as the greatest German philologist of his time and as the successor of Desiderius Erasmus (cf. F. Baron, ed., op.cit., passim).
