De sacramentis in specie, Eucharistia et Poenitentia quaestiones academicae, quas ad majorem Dei gloriam, praeside R.P. Leonardo Piertz, e Soc Jesu, … Defendendans [sic] suscipiet pro secunda baccalaureatus theologici laurea Joannes Ernestus Schlereth… In auditorio theologico…
A good copy of this rare Würzburg dissertation on the sacraments of the Euchasist and Penance, under the Jesuit professor Leonhard Piertz (1662–1741). The dissertation discusses when the Eucharist was instituted, what verbal formulae are necessary for consecration, whether the Eucharistic sacrifice was for the benefit of the living or the dead, and some of the philosophical questions surrounding the real presence; it then turns to Penance, examining its purpose and limits, and the extent to which it can be considered a public good. The printing is notable for the verso of the title-page, with its ornamental surround to the Sickingen arms.
