    More Information:

    "Lefevre's work shows an effort to divorce religious studies from the older Scholasticism. Between 1492 and 1506 he wrote student manuals on physics and mathematics and published new, annotated translations or paraphrases of Aristotle's works on ethics, metaphysics, and politics." (Riley, Aristotle Texts and Commentaries, 25)

    "Jacques Lef?vre d'Etaples, [c.1450-1536], French theologian and humanist. A priest, he studied in Italy, where he was influenced by Neoplatonism. In 1507, he was made librarian at the abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Pres. He became famous for his commentary on the epistles of St. Paul (1512) and his edition of the works of the mystic, Nicholas of Cusa (1514). Caught up in the spirit of criticism of the abuses of the Roman Catholic Church, he became a leading figure of Christian humanism. Although advocating some of the ideas later integral to the Reformation, he believed, like Erasmus, in reform from within and refused to break with the church. Nevertheless, he was subjected to suspicion and persecution. In 1521, the Sorbonne condemned as heretical his book on the three Marys, but Francis I and his sister Margaret of Navarre prevented further action against him. Forced to seek refuge in Strasbourg in 1525, he returned the following year as tutor to the royal children and librarian in the chteau at Blois. His last years were spent at Nerac, under the protection of Margaret of Navarre. The Protestant reformer Guillaume Farel was one of his pupils. Lef?vre d'Etaples translated the Bible into French (1523-30). He was also known as Jacobus Faber Stapulensis."

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
