Early edition of the major work of Jacques Marchant, a Belgian theologian of the 16th century who sevred as Professor of Theology at the Benedictine monastery of Floreffe. Though he was well known as an eloquent preacher in his own time, he is chiefly known today as a moral and dogmatic theologian. The Hortus Pastorum, or 'Garden of Pastors' contains the notes of his sermons and catechetical instructions, contained in four books. The first book deals with Faith, the second with Hope, the third Charity, the fourth of Justice. Under Faith, Marchant expounds the Apostles' Creed in seventeen tracts, each containing several propositions and lections. Under the head of Hope, he discusses prayer, and especially the Lord's Prayer and the Angelic Salutation. In this book are five tracts. Under the head of Charity, Marchant writes on the Commandments, in four tracts. The fourth book has a separate title, the Tuba Sacerdotalis, or the sevenfold blast of the priestly trumpet laying low the walls of Jericho. These walls of the city of palms are, according to Marchant, the seven deadly sins, which he accordingly treats of in seven tracts. [Sabine Baring-Gould; 'Post-Mediæval Preachers']. This edition is complete in one large 4to volume, (12) + 1360pp. (15)pp. index. Title is dated 1658, colophon dated 1648. With architectural and allegorical engraved title-page. Latin text in dual columns, with printed marginal notes. Bound in contemporary full velum over boards, with four large raised bands to spine. Backstrip is lacking, with bands of manuscript materials used in the construction of the binding visible along the spine. The binding itself is intact and solid, though slightly shaken. Contents are in good condition, with uniform light foxing and tanning throughout. Generous margins. Contemporary ink notations to title and front pastedown. Part of one signature (pp.1315-118) is a little loose and has slight wear to top of fore-edge. Overall, a good, solid, copy of this important work. N° de réf. du libraire 20110521251974
