Born at Pergamum, Galen served as attending physician to the joint emperors Lucius Verus and Marcus Aurelius. Of the more than 500 treatises he reportedly authored, more than 100 are extant. Gassendi, Pierre (1592–1655) French philosopher and scientist; Roman Catholic priest. Gassendi was cited favorably in William WOTTON’s Reflections and became well known for his efforts to refute Aristotle and DESCARTES and to promote materialistic atomism. An important topic in the works of Democritus, Epicurus, and Lucretius, atomism was the belief that all substance is made up of very small, indivisible particles.

Nora Crow Jaffe finds Swift using Apollo as the ruler of the poetic wits who often neglects the world below, resulting in poetic impotence (The Poet Swift 46). In “APOLLO’S EDICT,” Swift refers to his friend Patrick DELANY who suggested earlier a contrasting view that Swift was Apollo’s viceroy in Ireland, whose political intervention on behalf of the Irish was indispensable. ” In “Battle of the Books,” Apollo serves as a powerful symbol of balance and moderation in the so-called war between the Ancients and the Moderns.

In other essays, the “Maxims,” he argues against the power of coercion to influence belief, suggesting the validity of “primitive Christianity,” which he presents as an essential characteristic of English life. ” These strategies take for granted that asking readers to practice “Real Christianity” would seem too demanding. Swift’s target is not only the freethinkers who would abolish Christianity as a separate faith but all individuals whose allegiance to God is superficial and contains only empty words.
