The American Protestant Association began on Tuesday the 8th of November, 1842 in the city of Philadelphia. The constitution of the group begins: "Whereas, we believe the system of Popery to be, in its principles and tendency, subversive of civil and religious liberty, and destructive to the spiritual welfare of men, we unite for the purpose of defending our Protestant interests against the great exertions now making to propagate that system in the United States..."--p.7. 94 members included: Stephen H. Tyng, Cornelius C. Cuyler, D. L. Carroll, H.A. Boardman, Ashbel Green, John S. Inskip, and Thomas Hoge. Article II of the constitution reads: "The objects of its formation, and for the attainment of which its efforts shall be directed are--1. The union and encouragement of Protestant ministers of the gospel, to give to their several congregations instruction on the differences between Protestantism and Popery. 2. To call attention to the necessity of a more extensive distribution, and thorough study of the Holy Scriptures. 3. The circulation of books and tracts adapted to give information on the various errors of popery in their history, tendency, and design. 4.

The Old Fashion Farmer's Motives for Leaving the Church of England, and Embracing the Roman Catholic Faith, and His Reasons for Adhering to the Same: Together with an explanation of some particular points, misrepresented by those of a different persuasion. With an Appendix, By way of antidote against all upstart new Faiths: Concluded with asking thirty plain Questions. First American Edition.

Washington City). 9.3 x 14.3cm. $125.00 Printed by Joseph Milligan the Georgetown printer, bookseller and binder. He is know for having appraised Jefferson's library for Congress and for transporting the 6000+ books from Monticello to Washington. He was also somewhat of a skilled binder as Jefferson praises his binding in his letters. A somewhat scarce imprint. Concerning the book we are offering, the anonymous author states in 'The Author's Advertisement:' "And my reasons for now presenting this to the public, are first, to prevent people from being imposed upon by false notions concerning my conversion. Secondly, to shew that I became a Roman Catholic upon no other motive than from a thorough conviction of the truth of what that Church teaches; and that after a mature deliberation and strict scrutiny into the most substantial points of doctrine, especially those that seem to clash most with sense, and man's natural inclination, not from any particular pique, or temporal interest. And thirdly, to make it appear the Roman Catholics are by no means such abominable, idolatrous, wicked wretches, as some roaring Protestant preachers, and authors, represent them." Bound black leather spine with vellum corners and marbled paper over boards, spine with simple single horizontal fillet lines dividing it into 5 panels, gilt title directly on spine, small piece chipped from top of spine, worm holes & track along about 1.5cm of front hinge, wearing through vellum at top corners, worn through marbled paper at edges, rubbed & scuffed, faded yellow page edges, worm damage to front endpapers and first 5 leaves in upper inner corner--does not come close to any text, removed signature scar and/or tag on front paste-down endpaper, light damp stains in bottom margin of most pages, medium foxing throughout, tear in third leaf repaired with archival paper.

Luther Opponent Thomas Cajetan, on Sin and Confession, Venice, 1584

CAJETAN, THOMAS. Summula Caietani, S. Xisti, Cardinalis Illustrissimo, ordinis Prędicatorum. Per auam Docta, Compendiose resoluta, atque secundum S. Sancti Oecumenici, & Generalis Concilij Tridentini, & canones, & capita castigatissima. Additis (vt vocant) Summarijs, & copiosa rerum pręcipuarum Indice. [woodcut device] Venetiis, Apud Dominicum Farreum. MDLXXXIIII. [1584] Octavo, 10.1 x 14.9cm. $650.00

Thomas Cajetan (Tommaso de Vio Cajetan, 1469-1534) Dominican cardinal, philosopher, theologian and exegete. "As General of his order (1508-18), Cardinal (1517), and Bishop of Gaeta (1519) he played an important part in ecclesiastical affairs, urging the cause of reform before the fathers of the Lateran Council of 1512, reasoning with Luther in 1518, contributing to the elections of the Emp. Charles V (1519) and the Pope Hadrian VI (1522) and opposing the projected divorce of Henry VIII (1430)...In philosophy and theology his acute but conservative Commentary on St. Thomas's 'Summa theologica' (1507-22) was the first monument of a great revival of Thomism in the 16th century, and remains to-day one of the chief classics of scholasticism. Finding that Humanists and Protestants alike were making polemical use of the Scriptures, he subsequently turned to Biblical exegesis, for which he sought the assistance of scholarly philologists; and his commentaries on the Bible contain much enlightened criticism of an unexpectedly 'modern' kind. To Clement VII he was the 'lamp of the Church,' and everywhere in his career, as the theological light of Italy, he was heard with respect and pleasure by cardinals, universities, the clergy, nobility, and people."--Cross: Oxford Dict. of the Christian Church, p.216. The Catholic Ency. presents Cajetan as "Always obedient, and submitting his works to ecclesiastical authority, he presented a striking contrast to the leaders of heresy and revolt, whom he strove to save from their folly."--Catholic Ency., 1913, II:147. "In 1518 he was sent as legate to the Diet of Augsburg, and to him, at the wish of the Saxon elector, was entrusted the task of examining and testing the teachings of Luther. Treatises of his own, written, without knowledge of Luther's theses, in 1517 show that Luther was justified in his assertion that on the doctrine of dispensation the Church had as yet arrived at no firmly established position; the doctrine of confession Cajetan seemed also to regard as a subject open on controversy. Yet more than investigator and thinker he was politician and prelate, and his appearance at Augsburg in all the splendor of ecclesiastical pomp only served to reveal him to Luther as the type of Roman curialist, hateful to Germans and German Christianity."--T. Kolde in New Schaff-Herzog. Ency. of Religious Knowledge II:338.

William McGavin (1773-1832) "proponent of evangelical Protestantism and religious controversialist...His best known work is The Protestant, a weekly issued at Glasgow 1819-22. Statements in this led to his being tried for libel, successfully, in 1821. His interest in such polemic seems to have come from reading Thomas McCulloch of Nova Scotia. McGavin's work, though prejudiced and narrow, derives its power from a forceful, satirical style."--J.F. McCaffrey in Dict. Scottish Church History & Theology, p.514. Allibone quotes Robert Hall re this work: "The Protestant, a series of periodical papers composed by Mr. McGavin of Glasgow, contains the fullest delineation of the Popish system, and the most powerful confutation of its principles, in a popular style, that we have seen."

15 NICOLAS DE LYRE Preceptoriu[m] Nycolai de Lyra: siue Expositio tripharia p[er]utilis,
1502 Book Small octavo 9.6 x 13cm. Cologne 
Preceptorium Nicolas de Lyre, Cologne, 1502. Peter Christian Kierkegaard's copy (the brother of Sųren).

NICOLAS DE LYRE, or HENRICUS DE FRIMARIA. Preceptoriu[m] Nycolai de Lyra: siue Expositio tripharia p[er]utilis, in decalogu[m] legis diuine: cu[m] multis pulcerrimis tractatulis... Dec decimis tribuendis. De duodecim articulis fidei. De septem peccatis mortalibus. De triplici modo peccandi in deum. Den operibus misericordie. De natiutiate, vita [et] morte Antichristi. De minde mundei et extrem iudico. Exhortationes faciende infirmo morie[n]ti. Dyalogus Anselmi... Bernardus de planctu bte[n] Marie virginis. Colloquium peccatiris et Crucifixi. Dyalogus Isidori de hominie [et] ratione. Utiles doctrine pro lucrandis animab[us]. [from colophon:] Colonie retro fratres Minores Anno dominice geniture. M.ccccii. [1502] [Matrin von Werden] Small octavo 9.6 x 13cm. $2,250.00

The printer's name is not mentioned, but it is likely the work of Martin von Werden. The Retro Minores press operated from 31 July 1497 to 1504. Proctor attributed the work of this press to Martin Von Werden. BMC, however, suggests that, as the Retro Minores used three of Heinrich Quentell's types and 2 of the same woodcuts, it might have been a branch of Quentell's business. However, following the custom of the time, Quentell and Zel each gave the location of their shop as retro fratres, behind the friars, and identified themselves as the printer. Books printed by von Werden between 1498 and 1506 do not bear his name. However, they do indicate they were produced at the same location as that used by Quentell and Zel, or, as is the case with this book, retro fratres Minores, behind the friars minor. After 1506, von Werden indicated both the location and his name. Von Werden used the same typed as Quentell and Zel, and reprinted woodcuts which originally appeared in their books.

The book has been attributed to Nicolas of Lyra (1270-1349). In modern times it has been assigned it to Henry of Friemar, circa 1245-1340 (Cf. Buchberger.Lexicon f. Theol. u. Kirche. 2nd ed.). Nicolas of Lyra had the greater reputation and is known as one of the great Biblical exegetes. He emphasized the literal meaning of scripture and his work was a strong influence on Luther. Nicholas was a Franciscan.

Henry of Friemar belonged to the same order as Luther, the Order of Hermits of St. Augustine. He was master in theology at the Univ. of Paris. Later he moved to schools at Prague in Saxony, ending his career as Provincial for his order in Thuringia and Saxony.

There are a few notations in the text, and two signatures. The signature at the bottom of A1, the title, appears to be that of P[eter] Chr[istian] Kierkegaard, and the numbers following represent the date of his acquisition of the book, March 20, 1831. Peter Christian (1805-1888) was born eight years before his more famous brother Sųren, and outlived him by thirty-three years. He was decidedly more conventional in religious matters, serving as the Lutheran Bishop of Alborg for 18 years. He preached the eulogy at his brother's funeral in 1855.

The signature at the top of the first woodcut, A1v, is that of Friedrich Münter, 1761-1830. He is best known as an orientalist and archeologist. Münter was professor of theology at the Univ. of Copenhagen from 1790-1808. He left there to become Bishop of Denmark.

This work was published at a time when the Ethiopian church had just endured years (1531-1543) of invasion and persecution brought on by the Muslin leader Ahmad Gragn. This excerpt will give some context for this work which was published 5 years before the founding of the Ethiopian Jesuit mission in 1555. "With the Ottoman conquest of the whole Near and Middle East, Islam was given a special impetus in the Red Sea area and in the Horn. The Muslim communities of the Ethiopian region began to be more and more aggressive particularly in their relations with the Christian Empire. ... The Muslim invasion of the Ethiopian highlands in the beginning of the sixteenth century was... a tremendous success. The leader of the Muslims forces during this conflict was Imam Amad Ibn Ibrahim or Gragn, as he is know in Ethiopian Chronicles.... As the center of the mediaeval Christian culture of Ethiopia and as the place where the kings also kept their fabulous treasures, the Church was attacked by the Muslim forces with particular fury. Dazzled by the riches of the churches and monasteries, the Muslim troops burnt and looted for a period of about fifteen years, and almost completely destroyed the mediaeval heritage of Christian Ethiopia... The Ethiopian kingdom was later restored after the death of Ahmad Gragn (1543) and after the defeat of his army by Emperor Galawdewos (1540-59) who was given effective military assistance by the Portuguese..."

"Relations with the Portuguese had already started towards the end of the fifteenth century, and reciprocal envoys had been exchanged between Lisbon and the Ethiopian court. The Ethiopians were impressed by reports of technical advances in Europe and wanted to share in this material civilization... Emperor Libna-Dingil requested artists, builders, craftsmen, and men who could make guns for him... Thus, almost completely ignorant of the history and the spiritual heritage of the Ethiopian Church the Portuguese sought to act as the agents of the See of Rome. This caused a lot of unnecessary bloodshed in the first part of the seventeenth century, and led to the expulsion of the Jesuit mission by Emperor Fasilads in 1632... The Jesuit experience was very bitter for the Ethiopian Church, and it naturally led to the creation of very strong antipathies towards anything European for a long time. During their short sojourn in Ethiopia, the Jesuits had done a great deal of damage and they had seriously disturbed the spiritual stability of the Ethiopian Church."--Professor Tadesse Tamerat: "Persecution and Religious Controversies." www.ethiopian orthodox.org/english/ethiopian/persecution.html

RUPERT OF DEUTZ (c. 1070-1129) an important medieval theologian. "After teaching at LiƩge and Siegburg, he became abbot of Deutz, near Cologne, c. 1120. His writings include a treatise 'De Divinis Officiis', largely concerned to expound the ecclesiastical year , and several commentaries, notably one on the Twelve Prophets. Against the dialectic methods introduced into theology under the influence of Anselm of Laon and William of Champeauz, Rupert defended the more mystical theology traditional in the Benedictine Order, with its allegorical interpretation of Scripture. In his teaching on the Eucharist he held a doctrine which had affinities with that of Impanation, though it won little acceptance, even among his contemporaries"--Cross: Oxford Dict. Christian Church (1963), p.1188. Impanation was the name given to one of many modifications of the doctrine of the real presence "which arose in oppostion to the doctrine of transubstantiation. Rupert of Deutz is the father of the idea... He explains how God connects the real flesh and blood of Christ with the real brerad and wine in the Eucharist, without disturbing the substance of either... In the Period of the Reformation Carlstadt accused Osiander of holding the view of impanation; and same accusation was preferred by the Romanists in general against Luther, who denied it."--New Schaff-Herzog Ency. Rel. Knowl., V:464.
Essentially an allegorical exegete and a poet, Rupert of Deutz can scarcely be said to possess a formal dogmatic system. Dogmatic problems indeed, are touched on only in the course of his exegesis, and receive varying answers, in consequence of the varying context; and thus it became possible for the most divergent views to be held concerning his actual position. On the other hand, he appealed constantly to the Bible, and to it alone, so that his view of the universe and his concepts of God and of the world must be drawn from his exegesis. He regarded the Bible in all three senses: literal, allegorical, and moral. In each point of his interpretation the Scriptures were present to his vision as a whole, forming for him a single sentence of many clauses, each word, each syllable, each letter of and for the one thought. The whole system of his interpretation centers about Christlology. At the creation the incarnation was already provided for, and the divine command that man should multiply as designed to fill the city of God. In his Christology, moreover, Rupert strongly insisted on the perfect blending of the human and divine natures in Christ; and from his Christology his views concerning the means of grace, especially the Eucharist, become plain....there has been much question whether the eucharistic doctrine of Rupert was orthodox or not, his editor, J. CochlƦus, followed by the Maurists, affirming it, while Bellamine denied it. In the first place, since he regarded the Church as essentially the mystery of the body of Christ, little room was left for the Eucharist... passages may be cited from his writings which seem, at first blush, to imply that he taught that the elements merely represented the body and blood of Christ... The deviations and the inconsistencies of Rupert were those of his age, nor can he be judged by a norm suited neither to him nor his period. It is far more important to know that he was, in his teachings, a mirror of the Church of the twelfth century."--R. Rocholl in New Schaff-Herzog Ency. Rel. Knowl. X:115.
We offer this bound volume of four of his works: 1) Commentary on the Minor Prophets. 2) Commentary on the Song of Songs. 3) A Work on the Incarnation. 4) Exposition of the Ecclesiastical Year.
