DETAILS

A scarce early copy of Thomas Sanchez' seminal work on the institution of marriage in the Catholic church.

With vignette illustrations to Volume VII.

Tomas Sanchez (1550 19 May 1610) was a 16th century Spanish Jesuit and famous casuist.

The chief work of Sanchez and the only one which he himself edited, is the Disputationes de sancti matrimonii sacramento. The first edition is said to have appeared at Genoa in 1602; but this can have been only the first folio volume, for which permission to print was secured in 1599, as the two succeeding volumes contain both in their preface and the author's dedication the date 1603. The first complete edition was, according to Sommervogel, that of Madrid, 1605; later followed a series of editions printed at different places both before and after the author's death. The last edition seems to have been issued at Venice in 1754.

The work had an extraordinary fate, inasmuch as some editions of the third volume have been placed on the Index of Prohibited Books, due to its comprehensive coverage of every aspect of marriage, is has drawn upon Sanchez the charge of immorality. The work is still, however, reckoned by the Roman Curia among the classical works on marriage.

In Latin.

Complete in three volumes.
