Horapollo's text printed with Greek and Latin on facing pages. Hieroglyphica by Horapollo.; 12 editions; First published in ; Subjects: Early works to , Egyptian language, Emblems, Hieroglyphic. Horapollo, the traditional author of this work, was one of the last priests of the religion in the fifth century C.E. His only extant work is this, the Hieroglyphica.
Attempts had been continually made to penetrate the darkness, but without the slightest success, till the great discovery of Dr. Young sited the light, with which the energetic and imaginative genius of Champollion, and the steady industry and zeal of his fellow labourers and successors, have illustrated almost every department of Egyptian antiquity, and rendered the religion and arts, and manners of that country, almost as familiar to us as those of Greece and Rome; and revived the names and histories of the long-forgotten Pharaohs.
The ill success of every previous attempt, may in a great measure, be attributed to the scanty remnants of Egyptian literature that had survived, and the neglect into which the sacred writings of Egypt had fallen, at the time when Eusebius and several of the fathers of the Christian church turned their attention to antiquity.

The ravages of the Persians had scattered and degraded the priesthood of Egypt, the sole depositories of its learning. But the fostering care of the Ptolemies reinstated them in splendour, and again established learning in its ancient seat. The cultivation of the sacred literature and a knowledge of hieroglyphics continued through the whole of the Greek dynasty, although the introduction of alphabetic writing was tending gradually to supersede them.
Under the Roman dominion and upon the diffusion of Christianity they further declined; but the names of Roman emperors are found inscribed in hieroglyphic characters, down to the close of the second century, that of Commodus being, we believe, the latest that appears.
During the two centuries that succeeded, the influence of Christianity, and the establishment of the Platonic schools at Alexandria, caused them to be altogether neglected. This compilation was originally made in the Egyptian language; but a translation of it into Greek by Philip has alone come down to us, and in a condition very far from satisfactory.
From the internal evidence of the work, we should judge Philip to have lived a century or two later than Horapollo; and at a time when every remnant of actual knowledge of the subject must have vanished.

He moreover, expressly professes to have embellished the second book, by the insertion of symbols and hieroglyphics, which Horapollo had omitted to introduce; and appears to have extended his embellishments also to the first book. Nevertheless, there is no room to doubt but that the greater portion of the hieroglyphics and interpretations given in that book, as well as some few in the second book, are translated from the genuine work of Horapollo, so far as Philip understood it: but in all those portions of each chapter, which pretend to assign a reason why the hieroglyphics have been used to denote the thing signified, we think the illustrations of Philip may be detected.
In the first stages of hieroglyphical interpretation, this work afforded no inconsiderable light.
The part of the Hieroglyphica that does not deal with hieroglyphics — chaps. The manuscript of the Hieroglyphica made its way to Florence, from the island of Andros, in the hand of Cristoforo Buondelmonti in today housed in the Biblioteca Laurenziana, Plut.
The editio princeps, in Greek, of the Hieroglyphica, was published by Manuzio in and enjoyed more than 30 editions and translations during the sixteenth century, not including all the adaptations. Beginning with the previously cited Ennead V. On the other hand, this work intiated the mode of "writing with mute signs" Alciato — as expressed in the preface of so many emblem books — thus contributing decisively to the evolution and popularity of the emblematic genre.
In fact, as Mario Praz has pointed out, in this period emblems were normally seen as the modern equivalents of sacred Egyptian signs. Hieroglyphic 1.
Sang pour ce quelle ne boit iamais eau mais sang. Bologna: Filippo Fasianino second Latin translation DEum immortalem Aegyptii significare uolentes, altitudinem, humilitatem, excellentiam, sanguinem, uictoriam, Martem, et Venerem, Accipitrem notant, ac deum quidem primo eam ob causam significant: Quoniam animal id plurimae foecunditatis est diuque uiuit.
Ad haec utique quia praeter omnia uolatilia solis Idolon ac simulacrum Accipiter esse credatur, eo quod solis radios acutissimo obtutu recte intuetur, Quamobrem medici quidem periti ad oculorum medelam Hieracia ab accipitris nomine herba denominata, utuntur, Inde solem quoque ceu dominum humani aspectus in accipitris formam nonnunquam pingunt.
Altitudinem uero, quoniam caetera animalia cum in altum uolant oblique semper feruntur, quia recte uolare nequeunt, Solus uero Accipiter recto uolatu altiora petit.
Humilitatem autem, quia reliqua animalia non recte uolantia secundum demissionem uadunt: sed oblique descendunt. Accipiter uero per rectitudinem certam ad humillima quaeque descendendo uertitur.
Excellentiam, quoniam supra omne auitium genus: Accipiter longe excellere uidetur. Sanguinem, quandoquidem animal istud aquam in potum nusquam sumere sed sanguinem duntaxat bibere solitum memorant. Victoriam, Quia genus omne auium solus accipiter uincere creditur. Cum enim a robustiori ac fortiori quapiam aue sese premi ac superari senserit, illico in aere ita se supinum facit, ut ungues suos ad superiores partes reuoluat, Pennas uero ad posteriora corporis deorsum, assidue pugnando perstringat, hinc fit ut cum reliqua uolatilia ei in pugna opposita idem facere et paria esse nequeant, uicta relinquantur atque inferiora sint.
Isque ipse accipiter ad uictoriam omnino perueniat.
MS of Michel Nostradamus ca. Et ancho perche pare essere un simulacro del Sole, tenendo lei sola fra tutti gli altri uccelli gli occhi intenti uerso i raggi del Sole.

Hieroglyphic studies in the Italian cinquecento
Deum quum volunt significare, aut sublimitatem, aut humilitatem, aut praestantiam, aut sanguinem, aut victoriam, accipitrem pingunt. Atque hinc est, quod medici ad sananda oculorum vitia, hieraceo herba vtuntur.
Inde etiam fit, vt solem interdum, tanquam visus autorem ac dominum, accipitris forma pingant. Sublimitatem vero, quia cum caetera quidem animantia, quoties in sublime tolli volunt, oblique ferantur, nec recta sursum euehi possint, solus accipiter recta in altum volat.
Praestantiam, quod caeteris auibus praestare videatur. Sanguinem, quia animal hoc aiunt non aquam, sed sanguinem bibere.Photius cod. The books profess to be a translation from an Egyptian original into Greek by a certain Philippus, of whom nothing is known.
