Latin manuscript on paper, probably Bremen, around 1630. 4 °. with calligraphic titles. Folded page with schematic pen drawing and full page with schematic pen drawing in the text. 1 sheet, 204 pages, 4 sheets.
Manuscript of a disputation about the sacraments of last oiling, ordination to priests and marriage, which was probably written in Bremen; very neat, sectioned manuscript in small antique italics. – Our localization to Bremen is based on the classification of the text in the context of the post-Reformation discourse in Bremen: the Bremen preacher Ludwig Crocius (1586 – around 1655) published a tract of the same content in his disputation collection to refute the teachings of the Jesuit Roberto Bellarmino. The collection appeared in 1631 under the title “Tota theologia polemica Roberti Bellarmini abbreviata”, the corresponding tract can be found on pages 194-205; The respondent was Gabriel Kolhagen, who comes from the Bergisches Land region (Leo von Santen, Bremen as the focal point of reformed Irenik, Leiden 2014, p. 135, note 218).
Slightly trimmed at the top, slightly stained, slightly browned.
