SKU: 11403 Hyperius, Andreas Category:

(8) 768 (22) folia. Contemporary blind-stamped Vellum with raised bands and clasps on straps, 8° (Bottom outer corners slightly worn. The boards of the binding are decorated with a large central panel-stamp surrounded by other ornamental stamps and rolls, with on the front cover the year 1573 in a horizontal panel. Provenance: From the library of German Protestant theologian Albrecht Ritschl (1822-1889), who wrote extensively on Christian doctrine and lectured on systematic theology, with his name and the year 1870 on the titlepage. The Reformer Andreas Hyperius (1511-1564) or Andreas Gerhard, named Hyperius after his place of birth Ypern, was a theologian originating from the Southern Netherlands and for many years an influential professor of both theology and philosophy at the University of Marburg. His Methodus Theologica, a dogmatic which came out posthumously was prepared for the press by Heinrich Vietor, his colleague at the Marburg Academy. Initially Hyperius envisaged the work in six parts but he died before being able to complete it thus resulting in a 3-part work treating resp. God, Man and Church. (The unfinished parts would have been Law and Gospel, the Sacraments and the End Times.) His dogmatic textbook is composed in a very simple and clear manner which was not only addressing the mind but also the heart.)
