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.

1497 Clusa Souls of the Dead Ghosts Occult Poltergeist Incunable SPIRITUALISM Incunabula with instructions on speaking to the dead! Jacobus de Clusa, also thought to be called Jacob of Jüterbogk, was a 14th-century Cistercian monk who was the author of a number of theological treatises on morality, the ecclesiastical canon, and an interesting work on the state of the human soul after death – 'De Animabus Exutis a Corporibus'. Clusa states that the soul is not always in an incarnate, physical form and discusses ways to communicate with lost souls. According to Koslofsky, Clusa wrote this book in response to various hauntings that monks experienced in a nearby monastery. This treatise is one of the earliest printed works to discuss poltergeists, ghosts, and speaking with spirits from both Heaven and Hell. It should be noted, though, that Clusa included these instructions so that living people could speak with their loved lost ones – i.e. husbands and wives, etc. This incredibly rare incunabula printin ...

1726 Devotion of Sacred Heart of Jesus Jesuit Joseph Gallifet Catholic Doctrine Joseph de Gallifet was a French Jesuit priest during the first part of the 18th-century. He is most remembered for his promotion and support for the Sacred Heart of Jesus devotion – a devotion that is still widely practiced by Catholics. And while the feast for the Sacred Heart was not recognized until decades after Gallifet's death, his book 'Ce Cultu Sacrosancti Cordis' was written with the sole intention of fostering a culture which embraced the Sacred Heart Devotion. This 1726 edition of 'Sacred Heart' is an important printing in that it features the classic full-page engravings of the anatomically correct human heart – one with the cross and crown of thorns and the other without.
