Description:
1683 Dutch Hazart Church History JESUIT Missions TORTURE Martyrs America Africa

Cornelius Hazart was a 17th-century Dutch Jesuit priest and controversialist writer. His "Ecclesiastical History of the Whole World" delivered on the 'controversial' side of church history, as Hazart explored some of the most detestable acts of the church including tortures, imprisonments, wars on religion, and brutal executions, such as drowning, hangings, beheadings, and burnings.

This 1683 Dutch printing is taken from the first Antwerp edition from 1667. This book covers church history throughout Europe, including Germany, France, Netherlands, and England,
with parts dedicated to the Americas and Africa. This universal church history is unquestionably Hazart's greatest work and is ideal for historical perspective on Jesuit missions and missionaries around the world, as well as martyrs throughout church history.

Description:
1668 William LAUD Canterbury & John Percy Jesuit Protestant Calvinism Martyr

William Laud was the source and origin of many controversial and contentious arguments between Protestants and Catholics in the 17th-century. He was accused of heresy and false-doctrine by both sects, opposing Catholicism and called an opponent of Puritanism. While Laud was the confidant to the Duke of Buckingham, the Duke hired Jesuit John Percy (also known as John Fisher) as a chaplain. A series of pamphlets and arguments by Laud soon followed.

This treatise, 'A Relation of the Conference,' describes the heated debates and controversial nature of the attitudes between Calvinists and Jesuits. This work is a first-hand account of the conference between Perry and Laud in 1622 discussing the infallibility of the church, doctrine of Calvinism, and the foundations of Scriptures and Creeds.
