* Hebrew quotation: Ps 25:5: Hadrikheni
va’amitekha. “Lead me in
1) In the Masoretic text there is a dagesh forte in the
tav of “va’amitekha”, while this is missing in
2) The quotation ends here with a sof pasuq (final dot) –
this is naturally missing in the Masoretic text, as there the
verse is continued.
3) In the album there an accent sign can be found only under
the qaf of the first word, all the other accent signs
* The Greek is quoted from Aischylus, Fragmenta 390.
Lead me in thy truth. *
Wise is he who has useful knowledge, not who has much knowledge. *
Let fortune be in proportion with efforts.
I recommend myself into the memory of the
eminent Ferenc Pápai Páriz, the erudite physician
György Komáromi peregrinating
student in Leiden
on the 4th day before the calends of December 1719, doctor of
philosophy and medicine
459. Leiden, November 28, 1719
(active 1701-1719), Transylvanian
physician and doctor of philosophy
Komáromi learned in Nagyenyed (Aiud), and went to higher studies
(subscribed) in 1701. His name is followed by the inscription that
he was tutor (“paedagogus”) of Count Zsigmond Bánffy, and that he
had set out to foreign academies (“in acad. ivit”). Later he
learned at the university of Leiden.
Komáromi was already a doctor of philosophy and medicine when he
wrote in the album of Pápai Páriz in Leiden in November of 1719.
