1821 1ed DANTE Divine Comedy Italian + JESUIT Venturi Commentary Papacy Bembo"Abandon all hope, ye who enter here."― Dante Alighieri, The Divine ComedyDante's "Divine Comedy" is one of the most important and long-lasting works for literature – a journey through Hell and human nature. In 1732, a Jesuit professor from Florence, Pompeo Venturi, published an important critical edition of 'Divine Comedy'. It is known to 'favor the confessional verse against the philological, as it offers an explanatory exegesis, serving God' (Spera). Interestingly, Venturi, a Jesuit, sought to defend the temporal power of the pope and his authority with this work. Venturi criticized Dante's 'pluristilism' which linked Venturi to Bembian doctrines, (i.e. literary theories of Pietro Bembo). (Spera).Published in Venturi's hometown in 1821, this Florentine edition was the first published by Ciardetti. Three Italian volumes, complete with Venturi's notes and commentary under the original Canto text. Item number: #5154 Price: $599AL ... Read more

1651 1ed Arnobius of Sicca Adversus Gentes Diocletian PAGANISM Idol Worship ROMEArnobius of Sicca was a 4th-century early Christian church father who was mentioned by name in Saint Jerome as a Numidian rhetorician and dream interpreter. In fact, Jerome notes that Arnobius's Christian conversion was due to a dream. However, Arnobius is known to have only written one work – a work dismissing dreams and paganism – 'Adversus Gentes'. Translated as 'Against the Pagans', this apologetic work was divided into seven distinct books and was a direct response to Diocletian's persecution of Christians. Roman Emperor Diocletian was justifying his torture and persecution of Christians; thus, Arnobius felt it necessary to defend the monotheistic views of Christianity and condemn the idol worship in temples in the Roman Empire.Other curious inclusions in this work extend to the philosophical. This work also features the first known studies of what would eventually become known as Pascal's Wager and the argument over the ... Read more

1629 Confessions of Saint Augustine Catholic Doctrine Predestination Philosophy Augustine of Hippo was a 5th-century early Christian church philosopher and theologian. While most-known for his work 'City of God', he also wrote many other treatises on aspects of the Christian faith. His stance on free will vs predestination and fatalism was supported by and still is supported by, the Catholic Church, as his teachings on free will are consistent with modern doctrine. One of Augustine's most important works was 'Confessions' – collection of shorter treatises that were autobiographical in nature. In fact, because of this, it is often considered the very first Western autobiography ever written. Henricus Sommalius was a 16th-century Jesuit writer who was notable for editing a number of important medieval works of eminent church fathers including Albert Magnus, Thomas a Kempis, and Saint Augustine.
