Re: Medieval Latin

My concern is with "Ipsa enim se ipsa dependet a Creatore." Why is the 'se ipsa' in there? "dependet" I believe is intransitive so what is an accusitive "se ipsa" doing in the sentence. It makes perfect sense without it: "For it depends on the Creator." Any thoughts? It's ablative not accusative (i...

Re: help!Zymotechnia fundamentalis seu fermentationis theoria generalis

Zymotechnia is formed out of two Greek words, ζύμη (leaven) and τέχνη (art).
So it's the art of fermentation, as the second part of the title explains.

chymia comes from χυμεία (alchemy). So it's a different subject, although somewhat analogous.
