"In his Encyclical Mystici Coporis Pope Pius XII has affirmed that, "mysteries revealed by God cannot be harmful to men, nor should they remain as treasure hidden in a field, useless. They have been given from on high precisely to help the spiritual progress of those who study them in a spirit of piety. For, as the Vatican Council teaches, 'reason illumined by faith, if it seeks earnestly, piously and wisely, does attain, under God, to a certain and most helpful knowledge of mysteries...'"...." - Foreword from Liturgical Piety

    The Western Fathers by Sulpicus Severus, Paulinus The Deacon, Possidus, Bishop Of Calma, Hilary, Bishop Of Arles, Constantinus Of Lyons (Translated and Edited by F. R. Hoare)

    This book is in good condition. The cover has some wear on the front, back, spine and edges. The corners have some bumping. The pages are slightly yellowed, but clear of any markings. "The biographical writings in this volume are the primary sources for the Lives of the five Western Fathers with whom they deal. If the purpose of this series were to convert the contemporary pictures of the makers of Christendom into biographies of the modern type, each of them would have to be pulled to pieces, supplemented from other sources, interpreted in the light of later knowledge and reconstructed on quite a different plan. Since in actual fact the purpose of the series is largely to enable the twentieth-century reader to see these makers of Christendom as far as possible as their contemporaries saw them, it would seem that the task of the translator is to preserve as far as possible the feeling and manner of the original, and that the task of the editor is far as possible to put the twentieth-century reader in possession of the knowledge of the setting of the Lives which the contemporary readers had and which the writers took for granted...." - Preface from The Western Fathers: Being The Lives of Martin of Tours, Ambrose, Augustine of Hippo, Hororatus of Aries

    Ductor dubitantium, or the rule of conscience in all her generall measures; serving as a great instrument for the determination of cases of conscience. by Taylor, Jeremy

    London: Pr. by James Flesher for Richard Royston, 1660. Folio (32 cm, 12.6"). 2 vols. I: Add. engr. t.-p., [6], xl, 559, [1] pp.; 1 plt. II: [2], 558, [2] pp. First edition: Important philosophical treatise on conscience, casuistry, and Christian ethics, written by the Bishop of Down and Connor. The controversialist Taylor, crowned "the Shakespeare of divines" by Ralph Waldo Emerson, was the subject during his career of a number of accusations of crypto-popery, but the present work — the first of its kind — was designed as a "complete protestant answer to the many Roman Catholic manuals of casuistry" (according to the Oxford DNB online) and intended to provide an authoritative Anglican reference on the subject.     The portrait of the author was engraved by Pierre Lombard, while the added engraved title-page is unsigned. Each of the four books here (in two volumes) has a separate title-page; the main title-pages are printed in black and ruled in red. The text is in English, Greek, and Latin. A printed addenda slip is affixed to the final text page of vol. II, above the catalogue of books sold by Richard Royston. Leaf L6 in vol. II is a cancel (and separated).     Provenance: Vol. I added title-page recto with inked ownership inscription dated 1781 ("T. Moore"); vol. II front fly-leaf with inked ownership inscription dated 1696 ("Guilel. Rayner") and another (of "T. Moore's") dated 1781.          ESTC R20123; Wing (rev. ed.) T324; Allibone 2348. On Taylor, see: Oxford Dictionary of National Biography online. Recent quarter calf and marbled paper–covered sides, leather edges tooled in blind, spine with gilt-stamped title and volume labels and gilt-stamped decorations between raised bands. Ownership inscriptions as above. First few leaves of vol. I (including regular and added title-pages) with tiny spots of worming; slightly larger sections of same to inner margins of some subsequent leaves; a number of pages in both volumes with scattered spots of worming, touching letters but not affecting sense. Light waterstaining to outer margins of some leaves. One leaf in vol. II separated. => Significant and attractive.

The pages are yellowing and tanning, but the pages are clear of any markings. "The churches of the Anglican Communion owe their particular expression of Christianity to the historic church in Britain and England, to which land the Christian faith came some time in the second century. The new religion spread rapidly from its center at Jerusalem, and the persecutions to which it was subjected had not only the effect of making it stronger but also of dispersing it more rapidly. Britain had been conquered by the Romans in 44 A.D. and Roman rule meant that the trade routes were kept open. Perhaps traders from Gaul or merchants from the Mediterranean first told the story of the Cross to the uncouth Britons...." - from The Expansion of the Anglican Communion

The previous owners name is written on the inside of the front cover board. The pages are slightly yellowed and the pages are clear of any markings. "This book has its source in the direct suggestion that comes from a previous notable work. In 1940, William Temple, Archbishop of York and afterward Archbishop of Canterbury, published his Readings in St. John's Gospel . In the first paragraph of that work he wrote: This book is not a systematic commentary or exposition; nor is it intended for scholars or theologians-though whatever value it has for souls on pilgrimage may be as real for them as for others. Again, it is not a series of devotional meditations, though it contains some of these. It has no distinctive and consistent character. But it is an attempt to share with any who read it what I find to be my own thoughts as I read the profoundest of all writings...." - Introduction from The Compassionate Christ: Reflections from the Gospel of Luke

    The Great Church In Captivity by Steven Runciman

    This book is in good condition. There is some wear on the font, back, edges, and spine of the cover. There is also some bumping, and fraying on the cover. The pages are white and clear of any markings. "Of all the roads that a historian may tread none passes through more difficult country than that of religious history. To a believer religious truths are eternal. The doctrine that he preaches and accepts gives expression to their everlasting validity. To him the historian who seeks to discover and explain why the doctrine should have appeared at a particular moment of time seems guilty of unwarranted determinism. But Revealed Religion cannot escape from the bounds of time; for the Revelation must have occurred at a particular moment. The Christian religion, above all others, is concerned with the relations of time and eternity. Its central doctrine, the Incarnation, is not only an eternal truth but an event in history; it is a bridge between the temporal and the eternal. The institutions of Christianity, however divine their inspiration, have been ordered and governed by men and are affected by the temporal processes to which man is subject. The articles of faith, whatever their transcendental validity, have been spread around the world by the agency of man, their transmission has been affected by changes in worldly circumstances and outlook. It may be that man is continually refreshed by the messages from on high. It may be that there is a divine ordering of history. But the historian himself is mortal, restricted by the limitations of temporality; and he must have the modesty to know his limitations. His business is to tell the story and to make it, as best as he can, intelligible to humanity...." - Preface from The Great Church In Captivity: A Study Of The Patriarchate Of Constantinople From The Eve Of The Turkish Conquest To The Greek War Of Independence

The book was signed and an emblem affixed to the first page by the previous owner. There is no bumping or fraying on the cover boards. The pages are beginning to yellow, but the pages are clear of any markings. "In the long history of the worshiping Christian community, or at least of the Latin-speaking section of it, the sixteenth century witnessed the most momentous changes since the days of Gregory the Great in the sixth century. The intervening millennium, in fact, may be regarded in the perspectives set by the Second Vatican Council as a liturgical parenthesis, defined by the delayed indigenization of worship on the north European mission field. There were understandable reasons for this delayed indigenization which need not concern us here. Some of these reasons also help to explain the suppression of regional rites, such as the Gallican and Mozarabic, and the enforced standardization on the Roman pattern. The effect, in any case, was that a form of worship, essentially crystallized for Latin-speaking peoples by the time of Gregory, was imposed unchanged on the northern European peoples. For a thousand years they must worship through a liturgy unintelligible to most of them. The form of this service, deprived of inner coherence and meaning, suffered over the centuries various distortions, omissions, telescoping's, and adventitious additions. Finally, in the religious and moral explosion of the sixteenth century, a major section of the mission churches of northern Europe rebelled. They translated and adapted the Latin liturgy for their own worship in defiance of the Roman hierarchy...." - Chapter One from Corporate Worship in The Reformed Tradition
