I. biographical name Joseph Justus 1540-1609 French scholar II. biographical name Julius Caesar 1484-1558 father of preceding Italian physician

Britannica Concise

Classical scholars. Julius was born in Italy but settled in France. He worked in botany, zoology, and grammar but was chiefly interested in developing an understanding and critical evaluation of the ancients. His most widely read book was his Poetics (1561), in which Greco-Roman rhetoric and poetics are used as a foundation for literary criticism. His son Joseph, a precocious student of language, studied in France, Germany, and Italy and taught in France before he was called to the Univ. of Leiden, where he became known as the most erudite scholar of his time. His major works are the Opus de emendatione tempore (1583; "Study on the Improvement of Time") and Thesaurus temporum (1609; "Thesaurus of Time"), which brought order to ancient chronology.
