I have made use of another but a very superior English tract, namely, that of Sir Thomas Brown; which professes to treat of all the plants named in Scripture, from the Fig-tree in Genesis to the Worm- wood of the Revelations. On the revival of letters after the long night of the dark ages, the ancient botanists and physicians had their share of the attention of scholars. Hermolaus Barbarus, in his lectures at Rome, included botany, as known to the Greeks, among the natural sciences on which he discoursed. Mathiolus wrote more than one treatise on the botany of Dioscorides, and others followed in the same train.
