A collection of twenty-eight disputations held at the University of Wittenberg by Lutheran theologians and their students between 1600 and 1611. The disputations cover much ground, including the Eucharist, Church councils, canonical scripture, predestination, original sin, Christ’s ascension, the antichrist, heretics, the Trinity, baptism, the Church Militant, sin and blasphemy. Among those named as ‘praeses’ are several staunch Wittenberg Lutherans such as Leonhard Hutter, Salomon Gesner, Aegidius Hunnius, David Runge, Georg Mylius, Friedrich Balduin, and Wolfgang Franz, while the respondents include Matthias Hoë, Hermann Samson, Balthasar Meisner, Aegidius Strauch (three times a respondent), Nicolaus Hunnius, and Johann Behm. Both volumes are equipped with substantial indexes.

This sammelband comprises the first volume of Kaspar Heyden’s 1625 edition and the second from Christian Thamm’s earlier edition of 1623. Both these editions included a third volume, collecting disputations held between 1611 and 1615, which is not present here.

VD17 1:053400H and VD17 39:159714Q. No copies of the first volume are noted on COPAC; one copy of the Tomus secundus is recorded at the National Library of Scotland.

CAESAR, Caius Julius.

Rerum gestarum commentarii XIV … omnia collatis antiquis manuscriptis exemplaribus, quae passim in Italia, Gallia, & Germania invenire potuimus, docte, accurate, & emendate restituta, prout proxima pagina indicator, Eutropii epitome belli gallici ex Suetonii Tranquilli monumentis, quae desiderantur, cum doctiss. annotationibus.

First Strada edition of Caesar’s Commentaries, with woodcut illustrations, annotated by the Feuillants against François Hotman. Prepared by the humanist scholar Jacopo Strada (1507 – 1588), Rab’s edition prints Caesar’s Commentaries with Aulus Hirtius’s additions, Eutropius’s epitome of Suetonius, and commentaries by Hotman, Aldus, and others. The fine series of unattributed woodcuts shows plans and views of battles, fortifications, and cities.

The present copy is from the library of the Convent of the Feuillants at Paris, established by Henri III in 1587. An austere order formed from the Cistercian reform movement of the 1570s, the Feuillants evidently disapproved of the Protestant François Hotman (1524 – 1590), striking through each appearance of his name. The celebrated monastic library, comprising some 24,000 volumes including fine manuscripts and a collection of heterodox work, was dispersed at the Revolution when the order was suppressed, though a mid-eighteenth-century catalogue survives at the Bibliothèque Mazarine.
