DETAILS

Commentaria in Duodedim Prophetas Minores with Commentaria in Sex Posteriores Prophetas Minores by R. P. Cornelio Cornelii.

Two volumes bound in one.

In Latin.

(Commentary on the Twelve Minor Prophets and Commentary on the History of the Last Six Minor Prophets)

Cornelius Cornelii a Lapide (Cornelis Cornelissen van den Steen) (1567 - 1637) was a Flemish Jesuit and exegete.

Cornelius a Lapide wrote commentaries on all the books of the Canon of Scripture (including the Deuterocanon), with the exception only of the Book of Job and the Psalms. Even before leaving Flanders, he edited the Commentaries in omnes divi Pauli epistolas (1614) and, In Pentateuchum, both in Antwerp. The commentaries on the Greater and Lesser Prophets, on the Acts of the Apostles, the Canonical Epistles  and the Apocalypse of St John, Wisdom of Sirach, and the Book of Proverbs, followed later on.

All these commentaries are on a very large scale. They explain not only the literal, but also the allegorical, tropological, and anagogical sense of the sacred text, and furnish a large number of quotations from the Church Fathers and the later interpreters of Holy Writ during the Middle Ages. Like most of his predecessors and contemporaries, a Lapide intended to serve not only the historical and scientific study of the Bible, but, even more, the purposes pious meditation, and especially of pulpit exposition.

What Our Customers Say...

Carolyn, USA

Just to let you know that the beautiful book arrived today and I look forward to reading it.

Michael, UK

My book was delivered safely not five minutes ago and I am delighted with it. At the age of almost 79 my years of enjoyment may be slightly limited, but one of my six grandsons, at the age of 11, is showing the same interest in books that I have had since first I learned to read, and in due course he will inherit some of these old gems.

I'm delighted with the book. It's a fine 1st in a pretty good d/w and it's a big bonus to have the signed association as well. And don't worry, your description of the book's condition was I thought very accurate. Many thanks again and I hope to do more business with you in the future.
