Hardcover in publisher’s dust-jacket. Volume I I of Chemnitz’s magnum opus on the Council of Trent, translated by Fred Kramer. 783 pages. Contains Subject Index and Scripture Text Index. First edition thus. Essentially an examination of the work by Jacob Andrada, who wrote an explanation of the Council’s proceedings for dissemination, recognized as the authoritative work on the Council’s cannons and decrees. Chemnitz “has become the standard Lutheran answer to the claims of Rome as set forth at Trent.” No previous ownership marks. Minor clear tape repair to dust-jacket on verso of fold [not visible, presents well] and light dulling of red spine of jacket. Else a square, clean, tight and unmarked copy. Near fine in a near very good dust-jacket.
