From English Essays from a French Pen, 1895 by J. J. Jusserand

Among the familiars of the French Embassy, in the year 1663, . . . was a strange person, who belonged partly to the Church and partly to the world, a Protestant by birth and a Catholic by trade, named Samuel Sorbières, or de Sorbiès, as he preferred to be called. He was travelling in England to see the sights, to improve his knowledge, and to become better acquainted with the famous philosopher, Thomas Hobbes, of Malmesbury.

Sorbières was then between forty and forty-five years of age ; he was born at St. Ambroise, in the diocese of Uzez ; his father, his uncle (the then well-known Petit), all of his family were staunch Protestants ; and so <1-- p. 158 --> was Sorbières himself, to all appearance, during many years. He lived for a while at Paris, then in Holland, then at Orange, where he was appointed principal of the local college. His easy manners, easy speech, easy style in writing made him an agreeable correspondent and companion, and he became, early in life, acquainted with several of the best men of the day ; he exchanged letters with Gassendi, Father Marsenne, Hobbes, Saumaize. A number of epistles addressed by him to Saumaize are preserved in the National Library, Paris (MS. Fr. 3930) ; they treart of learned questions ; they contain copies of recently discovered inscriptions ; they are full of friendly assurances and respectfull compliments to both Mr, and Madame de Saumaize.

Sorbières had while young studied theology ; then medicine ; then he had devoted himself wholly to the making of his fortune, for the improvement of which he allowed himself to be converted in good time to the Catholic faith.   (Etc.)

( pages 158-9 )

    Sorbières had married, while in Holland, a Frenchwoman called Judith Renaud ; they had a son, Henry, who, after the death of his father, caused a part of his papers to be published.

( note on p. 160 )

 

...     He did his best from year to year to ingratiate himself with cardinal, kind, and pope ; he never failed or succeeded entirely.   (..)   " They give lace cuffs," he said, " to a man without a shirt!" As his disappointment lasted long he had time to circulate this consolatory witticism, to improve it and remodel it ; several of the " variantes " such as : " I wish they would send me bread for the butter they kindly provided me with," have been preserved by his friend Graverol.1

    1 In the biography he published as a preface to the " Sorberiana," Toulouse, 1691.

Before his journey to England, Sorbières was known to literary men principally by his translations. He had turned from Latin into French Sir Thomas More's " Utopia,", Hobbes's " De Cive," Bates's " Elenchus motuum nuperorum in Anglia." Hobbes had been greatly pleased with Sorbières's translation : " The book " (i.e., the " De Cive "), he said, in his " Six lessons to the professors of the mathematics," 1656, " translated into French hath not only a great testimony from the translator Sorbières, but also from Gassndus and Mesennus." He began with Sorbière a correspondence in Latin, where he apostrophises him as " clarissime charissimeque, amicissime, eruditissime," &ct. And he went even further, as he dedicate " viro clarissimo et amicissimo Samueli Sorbiero," his " Dialogus physicus de Nature Aeris," addressing to him a very characteristic and pungent letter, where, according to his wont, he loudly complains of everythings and everybody, but concludes with the kindest appeal to his correspondent, saying, : " Let us live as long and as well as we can, and let us love each other—Vale."

A desire of having some talke with Hobbes was among the main motives Sorbières had when he undertook the journey which was to make him for a short while famous all over Europe in the literary and diplomatic world, and to give him his " minute d'immortalité."

II.—SORBIÈRES'S JOURNEY.

Sorbières spent the summer of 1663 in England ; he had long conversations with Hobbes, he went to the play, dined at the French Embassy, was presented at Court, visited Oxford, drove to Hatfield, was admitted to a sitting of the Royal Society, and, when he had come back, wrote, at the request of the Marquis de Vaubrun Nogent, an account of all he had seen. The book appeared in 1664,1 and raised a storm.   (Etc.)

From A HISTORY OF UNITARIANISM, 1945 by Earl Morse Wilbur

" Distinguished men like Grotius, then living in exile in France, the liberal Calvinist Sorbière and the Catholic Mersenne, carried on amicable exchange of views with the brethren of Raków. "  
(pp. 424-5)

* * *

When Grotius returned to Paris in 1632 he became the centre of a circle of Polish youth, who seem to have been largely Socinians. Andrew Wiszowaty in the course of his wide travels had intimate relations not only with him but also with Gassendi, Mersenne and other distinguished men. One of the most interesting of these was Samuel Sorbière, member of a prominent Calvinist family, who had been designed for the Protestant ministry but had left it for medicine, and finally ended a Catholic. Wiszowaty made his acquaintance, interested him in Socinian thought, and for several years corresponded with him. Ruar thought him very near the Socinian camp, and by the Calvinists he was even charged with being a Socinian. [etc]

A. G. M. De Querlon (Paris and London, 1777) p. 100, n.1 suggested scyphos (Greek) and grandis (Latin) = "user of copious cups." Surtz and Hexter say, "A simple explanation for Syphograntus, however, might be a manipulation of sophos, Aeolic syphos, 'wise, prudent' and gerontes, 'old men, elders,' a combination which recalls senes ac rerum periti (p.112.23-24 in their edition). On the other hand, typhogerontes, 'silly old men, dotards' (in Aeolic and Doric t changes into s) might be more in accord with More's other terms, e.g. Anydros, Utopia, etc." They note that G. J. Vossius, Opera, IV (Amsterdam, 1695-1701) 340, letter to Samuel Sorbiere on the etymologies in Utopia, believes More and "refuses to concern himself with Syphograntus and Traniborus." The Utopians on the list might care to comment on the surviving fragments of their native tongue. Christian Kopff University of Colorado, Boulder kopff@spot.colorado.edu

"Utopie" (qui veut dire "nulle part") est un neologisme tiré du grec, forgé par Thomas More (1478-1532) pour baptiser une société imaginaire où règnerait la raison, et donc l'équité et le bonheur: Libellus vere aureus nec minus salutaris quam festivus de optimo rei[publicæ] statu, deque nova insula Utopia (Lovanii 1516. 4o.). L'énorme succès de l'ouvrage dans toute l'Europe et sa traduction en langues vernaculaires depuis le milieu du XVIe siècle, en rendirent si familier le titre qu'il finit par devenir un nom commun. Au XVIe siècle il fut traduit en français par J. Le Blond, La Description de l'isle d'Utopie où est comprins le miroer des republicques du monde (Paris 1550. 8o.), et au siècle suivant Samuel Sorbière en procura une traduction française nouvelle, L'Utopie de Thomas Morus (Amsterdam 1643. 24o.).
