Vossius presents a summary of classical mythology, but also includes myths from eastern religions and of Celtic, Germanic and even American origin. The second work contains the tract on idolatry from Maimonides's Mishneh Torah, together with Latin translation and notes by Dionysius. It makes an appropriate counterpart to the preceding work
