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.

A sammelband of four sedition trials.

An interesting collection of four important sedition trials of the 1790s: that of Thomas Paine, for the second part of his Rights of Man, which he did not attend and at which he was outlawed; that of the Baptist minister and political prisoner William Winterbotham (1763–1829), who was imprisoned for two years and fined for sermons making reference to the French Revolution and perceived abuses of the contract between king and people; and those of two of the reformers known as the ‘Scottish Martyrs’, Thomas Muir (1765–1799) and Thomas Palmer (1747–1802), who were sentenced to fourteen and seven years’ transportation respectively.
