  Joseph Justus Scaliger   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Joseph Justus Scaliger was born in Agen on the night between 4 and 5 August, 1540,the tenth child and third son of Julius Caesar Scaliger (1484—1558) and Antoinette de Roques Lobejac.
Although Joseph Justus received a first-class education at the Collège de Guyenne in Bordeaux (1552—5), he was largely educated by his father, an eminent classicist in his own right, who for several years dictated Latin poetry to Joseph on a daily basis.
Although Scaliger had every reason to be relieved at being able to leave France, which seemed to be in a perpetual state of chaos, on arrival in Holland he was disturbed by the notorious rudeness of the Dutch and the heavy drinking of his new-found colleagues.

 Joseph Justus Scaliger - Wikipedia
Joseph bekam einen ungünstigen Eindruck von den Engländern, von ihrem unmenschlichen Naturell und ihrer ungastlichen Behandlung von Ausländern, war enttäuscht von der geringen Zahl an griechischen Manuskripten und gebildeten Menschen.
Jedoch gingen diese Werke, obwohl sie Scaligers vordersten Platz unter den zeitgenössischen lateinischen Gelehrten belegen, nicht über bloße Gelehrsamkeit hinaus.
Was immer für seinen Vater gelten mag, Joseph hat zweifelsohne geglaubt, ein Prinz von Verona zu sein, und in seiner Epistola hat er in bestem Glauben und ohne Nachfragen all das wiedergegeben, was er von seinem Vater gehört hatte.

 Joseph Justus Scaliger - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Joseph Justus Scaliger (1540-1609) was the tenth child and third son of Julius Caesar Scaliger and Andiette de Roques Lobejac.
Joseph was also required each day to write a Latin theme or declamation, though in other respects he seems to have been left to his own devices.
When in 1590 Justus Lipsius retired from the University of Leiden, the university and its protectors, the States-General of the Netherlands and the prince of Orange, resolved to obtain Scaliger as his successor.

The author professes to point out five hundre s lies in the Epislola de vetustate of Scaliger, but the main argt n ment of the book is to show the falsity of his pretensions to b d of the family of La Scala, and of the narrative of his father s early life.
It is written, for Scaliger, wit Lt unusual mederation and good taste, but perhaps for that ver h reason had not the success which its author wished and eve a expected.

 Julius Caesar Scaliger - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Her friends objected to her marriage with an unknown adventurer, but in 1528 he had obtained so much success as a physician that the objections of her family were overcome, and at forty-five he married Andiette, who was then sixteen.
The marriage proved a complete success; it was followed by twenty-nine years of almost uninterrupted happiness, and by the birth of fifteen children who included Joseph Justus Scaliger.
A charge of heresy in 1538, of which he was acquitted by his friendly judges, one of whom was his friend Arnoul Le Ferron, was almost the only event of interest during these years, except the publication of his books, and the quarrels and criticisms to which they gave rise.

 The Galileo Project
Scaliger's father, Benedetto Bordon, was an expert miniaturist and illuminator of manuscripts and books, and a graphic artist.
About 1515 SCaliger composed a poem, "Elysium," dedicated to Alfonso and Isabella d'Este, but the outcome seems to indicate that he failed to gain the patronage he was manifestly seeking.
Joseph Justus Scaliger, following his father's charade, gave the Della Scala myth its enduring statement in a published letter, which is available in quite a few sources.

 The Julian Period   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Joseph Justus Scaliger was born in France in 1540 and died in the Netherlands in 1609; he was converted to Protestantism, left France before Protestants were massacred there, and accepted a position at the University of Leiden where he remained.
The reason for that day as a starting point was that Scaliger, in search of a time period long enough to encompass all of recorded history and some time into the future, calculated the earliest date when three important calendrical cycles coincided.
Scaliger was looking for a time period long enough to cover all of recorded history, and therefore didn’t bother to address the question of dates outside of the 7980 year period.

 Julian Day Numbers
The Julian day number system is sometimes (erroneously) said to have been invented by Joseph Justus Scaliger (born 1540-08-05 JC in Agen, France, died 1609-01-21 JC in Leiden, Holland), who during his life immersed himself in Greek, Latin, Persian and Jewish literature, and who was one of the founders of the science of chronology.
Scaliger combined three traditionally recognized temporal cycles of 28, 19 and 15 years to obtain a great cycle, the Scaliger cycle, or Julian period, of 7980 years (7980 is the least common multiple of 28, 19 and 15).
Scaliger knew that the year of Christ's birth (as determined by Dionysius Exiguus) was characterized by the number 9 of the solar cycle, by Golden Number 1, and by number 3 of the indiction cycle, or (9,1,3).

 Scaliger, Definition of Chronology - Timeline Index
The real importance of Scaliger's work to chronology, however, resides not so much in his results but in the quality of his work, his introduction of new methods such as the Julian Period and his insistence upon a rigorous criticism of sources, and his redefinition of chronology itself.
Scaliger's conclusions were also disputed by several of his contemporaries, including Arcilla, a professor at Salamanca University, and Hardouin, director of the French Royal Library, among many others.
The work of Scaliger and his imitators of the seventeenth century, however, represents a high-water mark for the field of chronology for several centuries thereafter.

 Julian day number and Julian period
Joseph Justus Scaliger (1540–1609), is still the basis of the way we number days.
Not surprisingly, Scaliger missed: the three cycles don't start on that date, since, among other complications, the lunar cycle is not exactly 19 years.
It is often said that Scaliger named the Julian period after his father, but at the end of the introductory section to Book V of De Emendatione Temporum he explicitly states that he named his period after the Julian year.

Although this system of dating, called the Julian day numbering system, is usually attributed to Joseph Justus Scaliger (born 1540-08-05 J in Agen, France, died 1609-01-21 J in Leiden, Holland), there is ample evidence that he in fact did not invent it.
Scaliger was one of Clavius' advisors, and is generally considered to have been one of the founders of the science of chronology.
Joseph Scaliger proposed a period of 7,980 years of numbered days to be used in determining time elapsed between various historical events otherwise recorded only in different chronologies, eras, or calendars.

Scaliger calculated the Julian Period by multiplying three important chronological cycles: the 28-year solar cycle, the 19-year lunar cycle, and the 15-year cycle of tax assessment called the Roman Indiction.
To establish a beginning point for his Julian Day system, Scaliger calculated the closest date before 1 B.C. which marked the first day for the beginning of all three cycles.
