About This Item

1631 1ed Sleidan Key of History GREECE Rome Babylon Persia Alexander

Johannes Sleidanus was a 16th-century historian who is best remembered for his commentary and analysis of the Protestant Reformation. He collected as all papers and manuscripts concerning the Reformation to which he had access (particularly those of Martin Luther) and edited them as part of his 'Commentary on State, Religion, and Republic'. And while his contributions to the growth of popularity of the Reformation was his greatest work, he also published a book on the history of the world.

Known as 'The Key of History', this book is a methodical history of four the most important kingdoms of the world – Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome. He describes important world events, beginning with Flood of Noah, through Roman emperors, the reign of Alexander the Great, and much more.
