A good copy of this panegyric given at the Church of San Marco in Milan to mark the feast day of St Augustine in 1660, by the Milanese lawyer Matteo Abbiate Forieri, an annual event on behalf of the lawyers of the city’s Scuole Palatine. Abbiate Forieri identifies Augustine as the African pillar that supports the Church, muses on the history of Italian interactions with Africa from Aeneas onwards, and praises Augustine for acquiring Africa for Christ, while combatting the heresies of the Manicheans and the Pelagians.

Abbiate Forieri was the author of several legal treatises, and was a consultore for the Inquisition in Milan.

Not in OCLC or Library Hub; SBN records four copies, at the Biblioteca statale in Lucca, the Braidense, and the Universities of Turin and Pavia.

THIRD LATIN LEVIATHAN, AND ITS MAJOR OPPONENT HOBBES, Thomas.

Leviathan, sive De materia, forma, & potestate civitatis ecclesiasticae et civilis. Authore Thoma Hobbes, Malmesburiensi.

Very rare third Latin edition of Leviathan, bound by a contemporary reader with the first edition of Richard Cumberland’s masterpiece, one of the key contemporary critiques of Hobbes’ work but also, in its own right, a work of great theoretical originality and power. The Latin version of the Leviathan, first published by Hobbes in 1668, ‘differs considerably from the English: it is in the Latin version which Hobbes really expressed his opinions’ (M&H).
