Historian Jacques-Auguste de Thou’s Works in Transylvanian Libraries

Remarkable personality of the French Renaissance, Jacques-Auguste de Thou (1553-1617), who dominated the historiography of the end of the XVIth century, is present with his works in some important Transylvanian libraries. Humanist, historian, magistrate and Parisian diplomat, moderate catholic, he edited his works with the entitled respect for the facts and with tolerance towards religion. He was one of the trusted people of Henry the IVth. Well documented, impartial, de Thou marked his value in Historia sui temporis (printed in Paris, between 1604-1608; forbidden in 1609; entails events between 1543 – 1607, work that began in 1591. This work, a model of erudition and objectivity, deserves our full attention also because it describes events that happened in our country between 1546-1560 and the victory of Mihai Viteazul (Michael the Brave) in Călugăreni in 1595. J.-A. de Thou was also a remarkable bibliophile, inheritor of a part of the rare book collection of Jean Grolier. The presence of his works in the Transylvanian libraries denotes the interest of our intellectuals for the works of his French Renaissance historian as of the first half of the XVIIth century.
