Herod Agrippa I (Marcus Julius Agrippa) was king in Judea and ruled from 37-44 A.D.. He was born in 10 B.C. according to Josephus (Antiquities 14.9, 2). Agrippa appears to have been a man of gracious manners, very kind, gifted with eloquence, yet filled with vanity. In religion he was a zealous rather than a devout Jew, attentive to "tithe mint and dill and cummin," but neglectful of "the weightier provisions of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness." He was keenly fond of popularity and possessed much personal magnetism (Ant. 19.6.1-2; 19.7.3). He died suddenly in 44 A.D.

AGRIPPA, THE 16TH-CENTURY PHILOSOPHER, published a well-known and often referenced esoteric classic – Three Books of Occult Philosophy (Natural Magic, Celestial Magic, and Ceremonial Magic). Until recently these three volumes were hard to find in English, although they had been translated in the 17th century and published in England.
Declamation on the Nobility and Preeminence of the Female Sex.

Henricus Cornelius Agrippa, "Declamation on the Nobility and Preeminence of the Female Sex".
Publisher: University Of Chicago Press | ISBN: 0226010589 | 1996 edition | PDF | 142 Pages | 5.77 MB

Originally published in 1529, the Declamation on the Preeminence and Nobility of the Female Sex argues that women are more than equal to men in all things that really matter, including the public spheres from which they had long been excluded.Rather than directly refuting prevailing wisdom, Agrippa uses women's superiority as a rhetorical device and overturns the misogynistic interpretations of the female body in Greek medicine, in the Bible, in Roman and canon law, in theology and moral philosophy, and in politics.

Ottaviano ha sconfitto e ucciso i cesaricidi Bruto e Cassio, ma la strada verso il potere assoluto è ancora lunga e piena di avversari. A minacciarlo ora è il fratello di Marco Antonio, aiutato dalla perfida cognata Fulvia. Il vincitore della battaglia di Filippi, intanto, è in Oriente e sta creando un regno autonomo con Cleopatra. A Perugia ha luogo lo scontro finale di una guerra civile che sta logorando la penisola. Ma Ottaviano e i suoi più stretti collaboratori, Agrippa e Mecenate, non fanno in tempo a gioire per la loro vittoria che già incombe una sfida ancora più sanguinosa e decisiva: quella per mare con Sesto Pompeo, il figlio di Pompeo Magno, diventato un abile pirata.

Volume 1b in "'s Josephus Project" contains "Book 2 of Josephus' Judean War" (translation and commentary). This book deals with a period of enormous consequence: from King Herod's death (4 BCE) to the first phase of the war against Rome (66 CE). It covers: the succession struggle, the governments of Herod's sons, Judea's incorporation as a Roman province, some notable governors (including Pilate), Kings Agrippa I and II, the Judean philosophical schools (featuring the Essenes), various rebel movements and the sicarii, tensions between Judeans and their neighbours, events leading up to the revolt, the failed intervention of the Syrian legate Cestius Gallus, and preparations for war in Judea and Galilee. The commentary aims at a balance between historical and literary issues.

In 48 B. C. Caesar pursues Pompey from Pharsalia to Egypt. Ptolemy, now sovereign after deposing his older sister, Cleopatra, attempts to curry favor with Caesar by presenting the conquerer with the head of Pompey, borne by his satraps, Pothinos and Achillas. To win Caesar's support from her brother, Cleopatra hides herself in a rug, which Apollodorus, her minion, presents to Caesar. The Roman is immediately infatuated; banishing Ptolemy, he declares Cleopatra Egypt's sole sovereign and takes her as his concubine. A son, Caesarion, is born of their union. Caesar, however, must return to Italy. Although he is briefly reunited with Cleopatra during a magnificent reception for the queen in Rome, Caesar is assassinated shortly thereafter, and his paramour returns to Egypt. When Mark Antony, Caesar's protege, beholds Cleopatra aboard her barque at Tarsus some years later, he is smitten and becomes both her lover and military ally. Their liaison notwithstanding, Antony, to consolidate his position in Rome, marries Octavia, sister of the ambitious Octavian. The marriage satisfies no one: Cleopatra is infuriated, and Antony, tiring of his Roman wife, returns to Egypt. There he flaunts his liaison by marrying Cleopatra in a public ceremony. Sensing Antony's weakness, Octavian attacks and defeats his forces at Actium. Alarmed, Cleopatra withdraws her fleet and seeks refuge in her tomb. Falsely informed that she is dead, Antony stabs himself. Borne to her sanctuary, he expires in her arms. In despair, Cleopatra applies an asp to her breast and dies of its poison.

48 avant J.C. Jules César tombe amoureux de Cléopâtre, lui fait un fils et la rétablit sur son trône d'Égypte. Quatre ans plus tard, après l'assassinat de Jules César, c'est au tour de Marc Antoine de tomber amoureux de la belle.
