"The Holy Ghost is that blessed Agent, who, with infinite condescension and tenderness comes from heaven to earth to bring the wandering sinner back to God. And can this heavenly visitant be resisted? ...Yes, the Holy Ghost may be, and often has been resisted... You resist the Holy Ghost when you contemn or neglect the means of grace... The Holy Ghost is resisted by refusing to comply with his suggestions... And will such guilt go unpunished? ...As sins against the Holy Ghost are of a peculiarly deep dye, so their punishment will be certain and dreadful... He may utterly withdraw the Spirit from you."--quotes from the first 3 pages.

This work was edited by Bernard de Montfaucon 1655-1741, French scholar and critic. He was called to Paris in 1687 to work on editions of Athanasius and Chrysostom. "Athanasius Opera Omnia, still the best edition of that Father, was issued with a biography and critical notes in 1698."--Ency. Britannica, 11th ed., 18:780. "The monumental edition of the works of St. Athanasius on which he laboured with Dom Pouget and Dom Lopin, appeared in 1698 and was well received (3 vols., folio, Paris, reproduced in P.G., XXV-XXVIII)... The thoroughly scientific bent of Montfaucon's mind led him to elaborate a new auxiliary science out of the studies he had made for the verification of his Greek texts... Montfaucon was the father of Greek palęography, the principles of which he established by the rigour of his method in grouping his personal observations."--Catholic Ency. (c1911) X:540.

Athanasius, bishop of Alexandria (circa 296-373) "By his refusal to compromise with Arianism, he incurred the enmity of the powerful Arianizing party in the reigns of Constantine and Constantius." During his turbulent career he was deposed and banished 5 times. "Before c.318, while still in his twenties, he wrote two short treatises, the second of them the famous `De Incarnatione'...As bishop he was the greatest and most consistent theological opponent of Arianism. From 339 to 359 he wrote a series of works in defence of the faith proclaimed at Nicaea--viz. the true deity of God the Son--both meeting the Arians in theological controversy and exposing the tricks of their ecclesiastical politics. From about 361 onwards he especially sought the reconciliation of the large semi-Arian party to the Nicene term homoousios (`of one substance'), which they were reluctant to accept. The Council of Alexandria (362), under his direction, greatly furthered this end... He was also concerned to uphold the deity of the Holy Spirit and the full manhood of Christ against Macedonian and Apollinarian tendencies. As the friend of the monks Pachomius and Serapion, and the biographer of Antony, he aided the ascetic movement in Egypt and he was the first to introduce knowledge of monasticism to the West. His resolute character as well as his theology was the outstanding obstacle to the triumph of Arianism in the East."--Cross: Oxford Dict. Christian Church, p99.

BEECHER, EDWARD. The Conflict of Ages: or, The Great Debate on the Moral Relations of God and Man. Fifth Edition. Boston: Phillips, Sampson & Co., 1854, 12mo. Bound publisher's brown cloth, rubbed a bit, fraying at spine ends and corners, small library tag at bottom of spine, engraved library bookplate, old library pocket and card, light foxing, light damp stain on bottom page edges. xii, 552pp. Edward Beecher (1803-1895) Congregational clergyman, college president, third child of Lyman Beecher and brother of Catharine Beecher, Henry Ward Beecher and Harriet Beecher Stowe; was president of Illinois college for 14 years. We offer his work on original sin. "The Calvinist dogma that tormented Edward most of all was that of innate depravity... It led learned, sensitive Edward Beecher into a theory of the origins of sinfulness that bordered on fantasy. Aided by what he believed was a divine illumination, he became convinced that souls came into this world not corrupt as a result of Adam's fall but as free spirits who fell from innocence in a previous existence. Since they had free choice in that existence, God could not be blamed for their fall... Fearing his theory would be labeled mystical and arrogant, if not heretical, he waited twenty-five years before publishing it in his magnum opus, The Conflict of Ages."--Milton Rugoff: The Beechers, p89.

"He was full of enthusiasm for the Great Awakening, and for the New Light theology inaugurated by Jonathan Edwards, which had been the occasion of the revival, since it enabled the preacher to call men to repentance, as the older Calvinism had not.

"Section XI. The Nature of Divine Illumination... To see the Holy Beauty of God's moral Character, to see the Beauty of Holiness, to have Holiness appear beautiful and seem lovely to the Soul, is of the same Nature as to love Holiness; but to love Holiness, is Holiness it self."--pp.201, 205-206.

Robert Burton (1577-1640). "Robert Burton went up to Oxford in 1593 and in 1599 was elected to a studentship at Christ Church where he lived for the rest of his life... his masterpiece was The Anatomy of Melancholy, first published in quarto in 1621 and reprinted in folio in 1624, 1628, 1632, 1651, 1652, 1660 and 1676... the sixth [edition] was printed posthumously from a copy containing his last corrections.... Burton had read much, and all that he had read, or nearly all, was refined and incorporated in the Anatomy... The Anatomy, as its publishing history shows, was one of the most popular books of the seventeenth century. All the learning of the age as well as its humour--and its pedantry--are there. It has something common with Brant's 'Ship of Fools (37), Erasmus's "Praise of Folly" (43), and More's Utopia (47), with Rabelais and Montaigne (95), and like all these it exercised a considerable influence on the thought of the time. Dr. Johnson deeply admired it, and Charles Lamb's often and strongly expressed devotion, served to rescue the Anatomy from a brief period of oblivion; its admirers will continue to read and re-read it."--John Carter & Percy H. Muir, eds.: Printing and the Mind of Man, #120, p.73.

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.
