The Vanity of Arts and Sciences (excerpt)
Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa von Nettesheim 1486-1565
Craig
Hi Craig, Thanks for this! :) What a marvelously fantastical list of enemies Agrippa von Nettesheim dreams up, who, he claims will seek to destroy him for his adherence to Scripture in preference to the Arts and Sciences!

You have one small slip of the tongue at 3:19 .The text reads: "The wenches will deny to kiss me. The giggling girls will laugh and cry "I dance like a camel." The lewd players will kill me in a tragedy." You said "kiss me in a tragedy." (which makes sense in the context of punishments for Nettesheim, I admit).

A couple of other small slips: at the top of page 5. the text reads "because I see that so many men, pufft up with Humane Knowledge and Learning..." You say "feel" for "see" and "human" for "humane" [from "humanistic].

And, a little further down on the same page, the text reads "yet attribute more authority to the maximes of philosophers than to the holy prophets of God..." It sounded to me as if you said "prophet" in the singular.

Regards,

soupy

Thanks Sue :D Yes it is quite the list.

I think he was mainly complaining against the philosophers who would allow no questioning of their doctrines about Aristotle.

Thanks for the reading of TS Eliot's work Sumit :D

a few errors noted.

1:56 we only conclude (we are such unconscious people) that the French are “more critical” than we – repeated we only conclude

12:45-13:18 – Section one ends by TS Eliot …. No need to read that – the only thing that should be read is “section 2” - no need to have 5 seconds silence between two sections

13:48 – no need to read section 1 – we just read the text as it appears in print.

15:42 the presence of the transforming catalyst, are of two kinds: emotions and feelings – repeated are of two kinds

25:14 – 25:31 – the only thing you should read is “section 3”

Craig
Thank you soupy for that! Oh..will remember those things in further recordings. I have corrected the file and uploaded it.

Thanks for the great sermon about God's calling by Spurgeon Leighton :thumbs:

Very well read.

There was one typo in the reading that you missed.

27:19 Do you feel that a strong hand has god hold of you, … seems to be a typo – should be got hold

There isn't much noticable difference in the sound of it. You can correct it if you want.

Craig

I marked it PLOK :thumbs:

Colleen McMahon
Thank you, Colleen! :)

I see you've given me another new author to add to the LibriVox catalog, this time an author with a little more distinctive name than your last addition ... Eltweed Pomeroy was named after an ancestor of the same name who lived from 1585-1613, but this Eltweed lived from 1860-1924. Here is a short bio I found on the web: https://tshaonline.org/handbook/online/articles/fpo13. Pomeroy "became director of the Direct Legislation League of New Jersey in 1892 and was president of the National Direct Legislation League in 1896. In this connection he wrote By the People (1900), edited the Direct Legislation Record, and was associate editor of The Arena. His accumulated papers dealing with initiative and referendum are filed in the Library of Congress."

After retirement, Pomeroy was instrumental in introducing pink grapefruit cultivation into Texas! :)
