Bernard Lamy (15th June 1640 – 29th January 1715) was a French Catholic monk of the Congregation of the Oratory of Jesus and Mary Immaculate, mathematician and theologian.
In this work he calls in question the historical character of the Book of Tobias and the Book of Judith, and maintains that even after the Council of Trent a difference of authority should be recognised between the proto-canonical and deutero-canonical books of the Bible. This work examines also subjects such as the history of the Hebrews and the Holy Land, a description of the Tabernacle and Temple, a history of the scriptures, and a great many tangential matters like the plants, animals, minerals, diseases, and customs mentioned in the Bible. On account of his Cartesian views, he was deposed from his chair at Angers in 1675 and driven from the city, but in 1686 was recalled to Paris as professor of theology in the seminary of St. Magliore. For publishing a book without proper permission, he was transferred to the Oratory at Rouen in 1690.
The book is very good overall condition.
