Florentine humanist Manetti (1396-1459) intended his polemical defense of the Christian religion, Adversus Iudaeos et Gentes to be 20 volumes, though he only completed 10 of them. The title places it squarely in a long and notorious tradition of Christian apologetics that began in Latin with Tertullian in the second century and in Greek with John Chrysostom in the fourth. He conceived it as a more ambitious project however, of universal and encyclopedic dimensions modeled in part on the 15-book Preparation of the Gospel by the Greek scholar Eusebius (263-339 CE), which a contemporary Manetti's had translated into Latin. This Latin edition has facing pages of English translation. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
