    Content: "The De Europae dissidiis et republica (On Conflicts in Europe and on the Commonwealth) is a collection published by Vives in 1526 that has been called his "summa politica." It contains five letters, to Henry VIII and three prelates including Cardinal Wolsey; a Lucian-style underworld satire on European wars and the Turkish threat; and Latinizations of two political speeches by Isocrates. It counsels the pursuit of peace following Christian principles, but it also explores the possibility of an aggressive war against the Turks as the means of unifying and saving European Christendom. It urges the calling of a council to deal with Luther. We present critical Latin texts and, for the first time, English translations, with introduction and notes"--
    Note: "Vives gathered compositions of varying dates into one ensemble which was published a few months after the Turkish Sultan's army overthrew the Hungarians in the disastrous battle of Mohacs (August 29, 1526); the book forms a closely knitted whole, made up of five letters to men of influence or power; a Lucianic underworld satire; and translations of two speeches by Isocrates."--Introduction , Includes bibliographical references and index , English and Latin, translated from Latin, from which parts were originally written in Greek
