Nicolas-Claude Fabri de Peiresc (1580–1637) was, during his lifetime, one of Europe’s most famous men. A friend of Pope Urban VIII and Galileo, of Peter-Paul Rubens and Hugo Grotius, of Tommaso Campanella and Marin Mersenne, Peiresc played an important role in the intellectual culture of his time. This book is the first study in English of this extraordinary man, as well as a vivid portrait of his whole circle. Looking through the lens of Peiresc’s life, Peter N. Miller brings into focus the early-seventeenth-century world of learning―its people, places, and ideas. Drawing on the extensive Peiresc archive (more than 50,000 pieces of paper), Miller brilliantly evokes the lives of antiquaries, philosophers, theologians, and politicians of Peiresc’s day, only some of whom remain known today. He explores the age in which Peiresc’s toleration and sociability, his political action and cosmopolitanism, and his serious scholarship without dogmatism were identified as a set of virtues and practices by which to live. Peiresc’s notion of scholarship as a moral exercise, the sweep of his interests, and the cross-Continental reach of his intellectual life show with new clarity what it meant to be a man of learning during the decades around 1600.

Peter Miller's book is neither a biography of Peiresc nor a study of the .

Peter Miller's book is neither a biography of Peiresc nor a study of the many fields of knowledge in which he toiled, though it covers much material that would be found in either one of those types of work. For Miller, Peiresc is the presumptive dean of the late Humanist antiquaries, scholars dedicated to the recovery and systematic description of the full range of artifacts of past human societies. The sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries were tumultuous and confusing times to be alive in Europe.

Peiresc would be thrilled to see the amount of borrowing and lending in today’s world

Peiresc would be thrilled to see the amount of borrowing and lending in today’s world. Twenty-first century librarians and library patrons think of international interlibrary loan as a viable, economical, and natural option. The Confessions turns out to be a story of Augustine learning to ask questions in the right way and to accept the dynamic of questioning as an energy moving him toward God. Appreciating the Confessions as a story of 'learning to ask questions' illuminates not only the work's content but also its structure, most notably the odd change of tone and topic from books 1-9 to books 10-13.

In his 1641 biography of NicolausClaude Fabri de Peiresc, Pierre Gassendi declared that all learned men acknowledged that the most noble Peiresc had seized the glory of kings. For Gassendi and his circle of savants, Peiresc, in his public life a member of the Parlement of Provence, was the pattern of beneficence and learning, heroic in his virtue, his magnificent mind, and his care for scholars and scholarship
