Biography/Description

The alternative spelling of J’s surname (‘Cyntholz’) is apparently the result of a printer's error. J. is known more as a philosopher and humanist than as a jurist. He wrote about Aristotle, Porphyry, and Thomas Aquinas. He did obtain a doctorate in law at the university of Frankfurt, but he taught philosophy there. The Arbores consanguinitatis (TUI 1584, t. 9) is a relatively youthful work, first published in 1516.
