[Three treatises on theological subjects], [1686].


[Three treatises on theological subjects], [1686].

Manuscript on paper containing three treatises, apparently in a single hand. The volume opens with "That the great number of expressions in the Fathers, which signify the Real Presence, and its consequences, is a demonstrative proof that they all ought to be understood literally." This is followed by translations of two works by Jean Filleau de la Chaise (published as by Monsieur Du Bois de la Cour): "A Discours on the thoughts of Mons. Pascal" and "A Discours on the Proofs of the Books of Moyses." The first treatise is written from an explicitly Roman Catholic point of view against "the Calvinists," and may itself be a translation of an unidentified French original.

1 v. (275 p., with blanks) ; 19.5 x 15 cm.
