Giambattista della Porta was educated at home where discussions on scientific topics frequently took place. His father, from 1541, was in the service of Emperor Charles V and della Porta was well educated by private tutors. Charles V was Holy Roman emperor and king of Spain at this time and his empire extended across Europe to the Netherlands, Austria and the Kingdom of Naples.
Della Porta travelled widely in Italy, France and Spain always returning to his estate near Naples where he was able to study in peace. He never needed to earn a living as the wealth of the family seems to have been sufficient to allow della Porta to devote himself to study.
In 1579 della Porta moved to Rome and entered the service of Luigi, cardinal d'Este, and frequented the court of Duke Alfonso II d'Este at Ferrara. He also lived in Venice while working for the Cardinal. In fact he was one of a number of dramatists who worked for the Cardinal, like Torquato Tasso, the greatest Italian poet of the late Renaissance. Della Porta, however, also undertook scientific work for the Cardinal, making optical instruments for him while in Venice.
Della Porta's work was wide ranging and, having studied refraction in De refractione, optices parte (1593), he claimed to be the inventor of the telescope although he does not appear to have constructed one before Galileo.

giambattista della porta’s comedy La Trappolaria (an adaption of Plautus’ Pseudolus)was first printed at Bergamo in 1596, with subsequent editions issued
INTRODUCTION Giambattista Della Porta’s comedy La Trappolaria (an adaption of Plautus’ Pseudolus ) was first printed at Bergamo in 1596, with subsequent editions issued at Vinegia (1597), Naples (1613) Ferrara (1615), and Venice (1626 and 1628). It is included in Gennaro Muzio’s Della commedie di Giovanbattista de la Porta Napolitano (Naples, 1726), but not in Vincenzo Spampanato’s incomplete edition of the comedies, Giambattista Della Porta. Lei commedie (Bari, 1910 - 11). In connection with a hypertext critical edition of the 1615 Cambridge comedy I gnoramus by George Ruggle , adapted from La Trappolaria , it is necessary to make readily available the text of the Italian original. I therefore take this opportunity to present a transcription of La Trappolaria as printed in Muzio’s 1726 edition.
The reader interested in Della Porta and his comedies is referred to Louise George Clubb, Giambattista Della Porta, Dramatist (Princeton, 1965). La Trappolaria is discussed on pp. 185 - 194.

Abstract in English Physiognomies from Giambattista Della Porta's work ´De Humana Physiognomia´ (1601) were analyzed with modern kephalometric software. These face types, illustrated in one of the most significant works of physiognomy, were evaluated for the first time based on scientific examination with a combined orthodontic - maxillofacial measuring procedure. They could be assigned to specific medical classifications; some physiognomies could be classified in craniofacial syndromes.

Cesi and the Linceans
The Lincean Academy was quite possibly the first scientific academy of the modern era. Though the group's members never numbered more than a few dozen, they produced important works in botany, zoology, geology, and astronomy. Linceans used the microscope to make beautifully detailed illustrations of fungi roughly 40 years before Robert Hooke's famous Micrographia . Linceans reproduced 16th-century illustrations of New World flora and fauna for European scholars. While a number of Lincean works were published during the 17th century, however, many more of their supporting notes and illustrations were eventually scattered among private collections throughout Europe, many of them winding up in the Royal Collection at Windsor. Fortunately, much of the group's work was preserved in a "paper museum" assembled by academy member Cassiano Dal Pozzo, and purchased by King George III in 1762. The Linceans enjoyed an early boost, both in morale and prestige, through the admission of Giambattista Della Porta. Considered the greatest naturalist of his age, Della Porta was also an accomplished playwright, and his erudite comedies dominated the Italian stage for years. Yet Della Porta was a product of old, rather than new, science. He retained the Renaissance reverence for the works of classical authorities. He also supported the ideas of antipathies and sympathies, and the doctrine of signatures (the belief, for example, than an herb resembling a scorpion is the perfect remedy for a scorpion sting). By the time of Della Porta's death in 1615, Cesi had lost much of his admiration for the elderly savant. By then Della Porta had been eclipsed by a newer academy member.

59. Brecht And The Historical Galileo
giambattista della porta was twentynine years older when Galileo.He was born in Naples in 1535, and died in 1615, when Galileo
New Mexico State University The conflict between Galileo and the Church took place within a densely charged political atmosphere. The new science threatened both the Church’s traditional role as aribter of doctrinal truth and its position as a great European power. What were the political issues at stake in the debate over Copernicanism? We can approach this question from two directions, asking (a) what political interests did the Church have vested in the traditional worldview; and (b) what interests did the Galileans stake in Copernican worldview. Given the profoundly human dimension of this conflict, we should also ask: what were Galileo’s choices? The first question, the Church’s political investment in the Aristotelian-Ptolemaic cosmology, is about Counter-Reformation politics. In the century-and-a-half prior to Galileo’s trial, Italy and the Church suffered a succession of severe setbacks. The French invasion left Italy in a state of political wreckage and set the stage for a poisonous rivalry between the Holy Roman Emperor, the Papacy, and the King of France. At the same time, the Church faced dissension within its own ranks. When the sixteenth century opened, scarcely anyone in Europe doubted the need for reform of the Church. Most called for a reform from within, but Luther, that Papal Bull-burning German, crossed the Rubicon. Breaking completely with the church, he split Christendom into two belligerent blocs, and added a vicious ideological element to the Cold War of the sixteenth century.

60. Magical Arts In Theory And In Practice
Group II. giambattista della porta. Primary source. giambattista dellaporta, Natural Magick, London, 1658, pp. 125; 328-339.
Magic and Science in Early Modern Europe Magical arts in theory and in practice (Folder: class two material) In this class, we shall examine the many meanings of magic. The aim is to understand the distinction between natural philosophy and natural magic, between natural and demonic magic, and between nature and art. How are these distinctions maintained by the authors? How important is the claim of secrecy for magic? Do magical practices reflect theories, or vice versa? One important task in this class is to become sensitive to the different types of practitioners. Again, we shall focus on a selection of material from the Folder, but it is advisable that you have a look at the other material. Reading Primary Sources The primary sources for this class are predominantly texts, and in order to read primary sources historically, here are some important points that you must clarify about the text: Preliminary Questions
  • Who wrote the book? When was the book published, and where? In what language was the book written?
(is the English text that you are reading a modern or an early modern translation?)
