(48) 1147 (45) p. Contemporary blind-stamped Leather with raised bands, Folio (Rebound spine and bottom corner-tips, several wormholes throughout both binding and text block, clasps on straps no longer present. The magnum opus of great reformed theologian Peter Martyr Vermigli (1499-1562). Originally published posthumously in Latin in 1576 by his editor Robert Masson, minister of the French congregation in London, going through fourteen editions between 1576 and 1656. It offers a summation of key doctrines in Christian theology and disputed issues in the Protestant Reformation, the ‘Loci Communes’ which was for many decades considered one of the essential textbooks of Protestant theology, especially in England where it played a vital role in the Reformation. Vermigli was born in Florence, Italy, and one of the most important Italian theologians to join the Reformed movement, teaching in Strasbourg, Oxford and Zurich. He belonged to the second-generation of Reformed theologians who, along with Calvin, gave definite shape to the Reformed branch of Protestantism.)
