(2, portrait, 22) 786, 372 (59) p. Contemporary blind-stamped Vellum with raised bands, Folio (Top-spine end and right side of the front cover lack a substantial piece of vellum. Slight water-stains throughout, mostly in the margins, some tears in the margins of the index in the rear. With several ownership-entries on the titlepage and -faded- library-stamps on the covers. The collected theological works of theologian Franciscus Gomarus (1563-1641). After advanced theological studies Gomarus received his doctorate in theology from the University of Heidelberg in 1594, he served two Dutch refugee congregations as pastor and became professor of theology at Leiden, Middelburg, Saumur and Groningen. He laboured for a total of forty-seven years as leading professor for the cause of Reformed Orthodoxy. Gomarus is primarily known as the leader of the contra-remonstrants during the theological dispute about the doctrine of predestination with the remonstrants and their front-rank man Arminius. The dispute almost led to a civil war during the Twelve Years’ Truce of the Eighty Years’ War and several of Gomarus’ most famous works grew out of these debates with Arminius. This being the second, corrected edition of his theological opera, the work containing some dogmatical and polemical parts but mostly comprises of exegetical studies on the New Testament.)
