There is a nice inscription in old pen on front cover that reads "Wild Rice Polk Co. Minnesota, 1880." There are three ownership inscriptions in the bottom right hand corner of the title page. The first is inked out so that it can not be read. The second is "M. Wilhelm Lüdovicus Ruoff. SS. Theol. Stud: 1604." The third reads: "A. K. Sagenius SS. Theol Stud. In Urbe Sancti Ludovici 1878." Then in pencil and on the recto of the front paste-down endpaper is "To/ Prof. James N. Preus From/ His uncle J C K Preus."

The Colloquy of Mömplegart was a disputation between Lutherans and Reformed at the castle of Mömpelgart(or French: Montbéliard) near the French border. It was occasioned by the incorporation of the county of Mömpelgart into the duchy of Württemburg by inheritance. A Calvinistic type of the Reformation had been established there in 1535, but the duke of Württemberg attempted to reorganize the church on the Lutheran model. To further this, he arranged the disputation--primarily between Beza on the Reformed side and Andreä on the Lutheran, even though others were also participants, including Lucas Osiander & Abraham Musculus. The points of controversy were (1) the Lord's Supper, (2) the person of Christ, (3) pictures and ceremonies, (4) baptism, and (5) election. Both parties claimed victory. Beza disputed the correctness of the Acta of Tübingen and defended himself in Latin and German. The only result of the dispute was a deepening of the differences between the parties.--A. Schweizer in The New Schaff-Herzog Ency. Religious Knowledge, 8:42. This is the Tübingen Acta. It is both an important and rare source document for the study of the history of the Reformation and Reformation theology. Bound in a handsome dated binding.

I quote Philip Schaff who describes this work and gives a summary of its contents. Schaff lists it as the second work (after the Harmonia Confesssion Fidei Orthodixarum, et Reformatarum Ecclesiarum) under the headings: The Reformed Confessions; Literature; I. Collections of Reformed Symbols, in his Creeds of Christendom, I:354-55. "The first edition of this rare and valuable book was probably compiled by Gaspar Laurentius, who is not named on the title-page, but who signs himself in the dedicatory Epistle to Elector Frederick III. of the Palatinate, before the 'Orthodox Consensus' (in Part III.), and says, in the 'General Preface,' that he edited this Consensus a. 1595, and now (1612) in a much improved form. His object was the same as that of the Harmony, viz., to show the essential unity of the evangelical faith in the multiplicity and variety of Confessions which, as the Preface says, in the absence of conspiracy, only strengthen the harmony, and mutually illustrate and supplement each other, like many orthodox expositions of the Scriptures. The second edition, of which I have a copy, is a large quarto volume, consisting of three main parts, the several documents being paged separately. It contains the principal Reformed Confessions down to the Synod of Dort, three Lutheran Confessions, and several other documents, as follows: 1. The Harmonia sive Concordantia Confessionum Fidei per (xiii.) Articulos digesta, with the Symbolum Apostolicum, as the basis of a general consensus, supported by Scripture texts and references to the various Confessions of the collection (8 pp.); 2. Confessio Helvetica posterior, reprinted from a Zurich edition of 1651: 3. Confessio Helvetica prior (or Basileensis II.), 1536; 4. Confessio Basileensis I. (or Mylhusiana), 1532; 5. Confessio Gallica, from the Latin edition of 1566; 6. Confessio Anglicana, 1562; 7. Confessio Scotica of 1560, and the second of 1580; 8. Confessio Ecclesiarum Belgicarum, 1559; 9. Confessio Czengerina, the Hungarian Confession, 1570; 10. Confessio Polonica, or Consensus Poloniæ (Sendomirensis) 1570; 11. Confessio Argentinensis S. Tetrapolitana, 1531; 12. Confessio Angustana, from the Wittenberg edition of 1540; 13. Confessio Saxonica, s. Misnica, 1551; 14. Confessio Wirtembergica, 1552; 15. Confessio Illustrissimi Electoris Palatini, Friderici III., 1576; 16. Confessio Bohemica (the first of the two Bohemian Confessions, which was presented to King Ferdinand in 1535. It contains a Preface by Luther. The second was compiled 1575); 17. Consensus Ecclesiarum Majoris el Minoris Poloniæ, Lithuaniæ, etc., 1583. Appended: Acta et Conclusiones Synodi Generalis Thoruniensis; 18. Articuli Confessionis Basileensis of the year 1647; 19. Canones Synodi Dordrechtanæ, 1619; 20. Confessio Cyrilli Patriarchæ Constantinop., 1631; 21. Catholicus Consensus, viz., A Harmony of Christian Doctrine, compiled from the Scriptures and the writings of the Fathers, under the following heads: (a) On the Word of God as the Rule of Faith; (b) On God, the Trinitarian and Christological Doctrines; (c) On Divine Providence; (d) On the Head of the Church; (e) On Justification; (f) On Free Will, Original Sin, Election and Predestination; (g) On the Sacraments; (h) On Idolatry, the Worship of Images, etc.; (i) On the True Way of Worshiping and Serving God; (k) On the Church and the Ministry; (l) Resurrection and the Future State."

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."

Writing against Johann Wigand, Wittenberg, 1571.

Authore Christophoro Pezelio, Sacre Theologiæ Doctore & Professore in Academia Wvitebergensi. [small simple woodcut device] VVitebergæ, Excudebant Clemens Schleich & Antonius Schöne, Anno M.D.LXXI. [1571] quarto, 15.7 x 19.5cm (pages) $750.00

Christoph Pezel (1539-1604) "German crypto-Calvinist... He was educated at the universities of Jena and Wittenberg...in 1569 was ordained preacher at the Schloss-kirche in Wittenberg. In the same year he entered the theological faculty, where he soon became involved in the disputes between the followers of Melanchthon and Luther, writing the Apologia veræ doctrinæ de definitione Evangelii (Wittenberg, 1571) and being the chief author of the Wittenberg catechism of 1571. He soon took a leading position as a zealous Philippist."--G. Kawerau in New Schaff-Herzog Ency. Rel. Knowl. IX:4. He was banished in 1576 for his Calvinism, but was called to Nassau the following year where he helped to introduce Calvinism. Bremen called him in 1581, and there he laid the foundation of Reformed church life. "Pezel did away with Luther's Catechism, substituting for it his own Bremen catechism, which remained in force until the eighteenth century, removed images and pictures from the churches, formed a ministerium which united the clergy, and, by his Consensus ministerii Bremensis ecclesiæ of 1595, prepared the way for the complete acceptance of Calvinistic doctrine." "He is particularly interesting as showing the evolution from Melanchthon's attitude towards predestination to the complete determinism of the Calvinistic concept of the dogma."--ibid. The Apologia is one of Pezel's earlier writings and was directed against Johann Wigand. Johann Wigand (1523-1587) had studied at Wittenberg hearing Luther, Melancthon & Cruciger. He was a staunch defender of orthodox Lutheran doctrine. Title translation: A Defence of true Doctrine from an Exposition of the Gospel. In Opposition to the vainglorious, deluded, and unworthy, shifty theologian, Johann Wigand.

PRIME, RALPH D. The Religions Situation in France. Address of Ralph E. Prime, D.C.L., LL.D., Before the Western Section February 20, 1907, and Message of the Section to the Reformed Churches in France. [at head of title:] Western Section of the Executive Commission of the Alliance of Reformed Churches throughout the world holding the Presbyterian System. No place, no publisher. 1907. Octavo. $40.00

Pamphlet in pink paper wrapper, title on wrapper, wrapper splitting top and bottom 2cm along spine, wrapper faded around edges, pages lightly tanning, otherwise good condition. Pagination: [1]-19pp, (1) blank; plus wrapper.

The author reviews French church history from the beginnings illustrating that the French Catholic church has always been somewhat independent of Rome. He then discusses the Separation of Acts of 1906, which "assures, in France, the liberty of conscience and guarantees the free practice of religions, subject only to the restrictions in the interest of public order. It declares that the Republic neither recognizes nor subsidizes any religion, and will, after January 1, 1906, omit from the budget all expenses connected with the practice of religions..." He wonders at the in Americans who are demonstrating against the French law, and closes with a resolution to the Reformed Churches in France that was adopted by the Western Section of the Exec. Comm. of the Alliance of Reformed Churches. With this pamphlet is a sheet, printed one side titled "The Religious Situation in France." The sheet along with Prime's comments publishes an anonymous letter to Prime in response to his speech. The writer of the letter addresses Prime thus: "Prime, You Turkey-Buzzard, Pin Head. don't you know that the Roman Catholic church will live and be triumphal. when you and your reform fools are ded and forgotten. and also when your old rotten body has rotted in its grave. M. Briand, U.P. P.S. You may meet me sooner or later."
