Traité de la légitimité du prêt lucratif, ouvrage utile & instructif pour les laïques & pour les ecclésiatiques.
First and only edition of this work on interest and usury. According to Dorlhac, while the profits from interest are legitimate and those from usury illegitimate, one cannot categorically approve or condemn one or the other, since it depends on circumstances: if loans to the poor ought to be interest free, there is no obligation to offer the same advantage to the rich. Dorlhac cites Scripture, the Church Fathers, Church Councils and Papal decrees to show how religious opinion is in accord with natural laws and with his own conclusions on these questions.
