DETAILS

A very scarce work by John de Lugo (1583-1660), a Spanish Jesuit and Cardinal, was an eminent theologian of the Renaissance.

Disputationes Scholasticae, et Morales, De Virtute, et Sacramento Penitentiae. Stem De Suffragiis, et Indulgentis. Opus Confessariis Omnibus Maxime Utile. [Discussions of Scholastic, and Morales, On the Power, he and the sacrament of penance. The Stem of the votes, and his pardon. A work useful to all confessors.]

In Latin.

Reprinted with past mistakes corrected.

With a half title, two colour decorative, title and decorative head and tail pieces throughout.

It is said that John de Lugo's lectures, even before being printed, were spread by copyists in other countries. When the General of the Society ordered him to print his works, he obeyed and without help had the material for the first three volumes prepared within five years (1633, 1636, 1638).

The works of Juan de Lugo, some of which have never been printed, cover nearly the whole field of moral - and dogmatic theology. The first volume, De Incarnatione Domini (Lyons, 1633), of which the short preface is well worth reading to get an idea of de Lugo's method, came out in 1633. It was followed by De sacramentis in genere; De Venerabili Eucharisti Sacramento et de sacrosancto Miss sacrificio (Lyons, 1636); De Virtute et Sacramento poenitenti, de Suffragiis et Indulgentiis (Lyons, 1638); and De justitia et jure (Lyon, 1642), the work on which de Lugo's fame especially rested. In composition of this important treatise, he was greatly aided by his knowledge of law acquired in his younger days at Salamanca, and it was this work which he dedicated and presented to the pope in person and which may be said to have gained for him a cardinal's hat.

What he intended in his writings was not to give a long treatise, exhaustive from every point of view; he wished only "to open up a small river, to the ocean", without relating what others had said before him and without giving a series of opinions of previous writers or furnishing authors or quotations in number; he aimed at adding what he had found from his own reflection and deep meditation on each subject. Other features of his theological conceptions are the union he always maintains between moral and dogmatic theology, the latter being the support of the former, and the same treatment being applied to both, discussing thoroughly the principle on which the main points of the doctrine rest.

They’ve arrived and I am so pleased with them. Usually they have foxing and other nasty things but these are just great…..thanks for finding them; keep looking for unusual things for me…!!!

Peter, UK

I received the books in perfect order. They are in great shape and I'm sure that my friend will be thrilled to receive them on her birthday. I'm happy with my purchase and am looking forward to buying more books from you.Thank you so much for all the work you've done to make this possible!

Dmitrii, Russia

 For Christmas, I ordered a set of 200 year old encyclopedias on the history of Great Britain for my wife.  She absolutely loved them.  They were exactly as advertised and she went crazy over their smell.  I believe this has set us on the path of collecting older books and such and I have no doubt we will be repeat customers in the future. Thank you very much for helping me provide my wife a wonderful Christmas gift while I am deployed.
