Religie - Aantal: 1 - Boek

Posthumous first edition of this work by Bossuet, originally written in Latin but translated into French by Bossuet himself. He had it preceded by a mandement to recommend its reading to the members of his diocese. The work thus consists of three parts: the Mandement, the text of L'amour de Dieu in Latin ("Tractatus de dilectione in sacramento poenitentia requisita"), and its translation into French. ‎

In this work Bossuet gives his opinion on the love of God, a topic that animated the debates of the Catholic Church in France in the 17th and 18th centuries, notably with Fénélon.

Jacques-Bénigne Bossuet (1627-1704) was not only the foremost French preacher of the 17th century, he was also the author of a prolific body of polemical, historical, theological and philosophical works.

Period glazed tan calfskin binding, ribbed spine adorned with gilded embossing in the compartment, red morocco title label, fillets on the cover edges, all edges gilded.

A lovely copy, wide margins. Light imperfections: cracked joints (secure covers), yellowed inside, with some scattered foxing but nothing consequential.
