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.

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.

RUPERT OF DEUTZ (c. 1070-1129) an important medieval theologian. "After teaching at Liége 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. Cochlæus, 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.

The sodality was placed under the special protection of the Blessed Virgin, and the object was declared to be personal perfection in virtue and study, as well as works of charity and zeal for souls."--Catholic Ency. XIV:128. In 17th century Dillingen, Germany, "In order to foster a truly religious spirit among the students and to secure the faithful performance of their duties, a large and a small sodality were were organized besides one for the religious. It was at Dillingen that the first sodality of the Blessed Virgin was established in Upper Germany; the sodality carried on an active correspondence with the original sodality, the B.V. Annuntiatæ in Rome, and with various local organizations."--ibid, IV:796b
