        Año de 1567. Relacion del viaje que hizo Alvaro de Mendaña con el armada de S. M. al descubrimiento de las islas de Poniente o de Salomon...

      Spain: 18th-century transcript of an original dated 1568. Folio (310 x 210 mm), 18 leaves, manuscript in ink on paper, written in a fine and legible 18th-century hand; bound in plain red-brown boards. Important original account of Mendaña's voyage across the Pacific from Peru and the discovery of the Solomon Islands in 1567-8, reproduced in 18th-century manuscript from a lost 16th-century original. This was an exceptionally important voyage, and the precursor to Pedro Fernandez de Quiros's subsequent voyage and his famous project to colonise what was then thought to be the Southern Continent.Mendaña's discoveries in the Solomons of Ysabel (Santa Isabel), Guadalcanal, and San Cristobal in 1567 led to his colonising voyage of 1595 to the nearby Santa Cruz ("Austrialia del Spiritu Santo" as it became known), in the course of which he died: the command of this second voyage was taken over by Quiros, beginning the most significant chapter in the history of discovery and colonisation in the southern hemisphere. The voyages of Mendaña and Quiros, as Oscar Spate has noted, were "among the most remarkable in the whole history of maritime discovery":This handsome manuscript was acquired by Sir Thomas Phillipps from the bookseller Henry Stevens along with other manuscripts from the library of Lord Kingsborough in 1860; catalogued by Phillipps as MS 16179, it was subsequently in the private collection of the late H.P. Kraus in New York. It is a companion manuscript to another held by the National Library of Australia (Phillipps MS 16224) with the same provenance from Kingsborough via Stevens (see A. N. L. Munby, Phillipps Studies IV, Cambridge, 1956, p. 198); the NLA ms. is numbered at the head of the first leaf "No. 1" while ours is marked "No. 2". Both mss. are in the simple red-brown paper boards typical of bindings done for Phillipps.The circulation of numbered copies of the same text would make a deal of sense in the context of a political discussion between relevant senior officials in the Spanish administration. Certainly an 18th-century copying of the manuscript for wider examination very likely had its genesis in the revived Spanish interest in maintaining their mastery of the Pacific and in reviewing the early history of Spanish America and the publication or reprinting in the 18th century of many 16th-century texts concerning this. This was not merely an antiquarian exercise and can be seen against the Bourbon monarchy's attempts to reform Spain's institutions and government.Although the Bourbons were keen to learn more about their present possessions, they were not especially interested in further exploration since they had enough on their plate already. The exception to this was to forestall the claims of rival imperial powers, as, for example, on the Northwest Coast. The Solomons ventures in the 16th century would have been of interest in this context, because their location (or rediscovery as they were 'lost' for two centuries) was closely linked to the 18th century attempts to find a Southern Continent - and the Spanish in the mid to late 18th century were not so much interested in discovering a Southern Continent as concerned that British attempts to do so would threaten their control of the Pacific and their possessions in South America. Knowing what was out there was, therefore, of great strategic importance to Spain.The National Library says of their manuscript: 'From 1567 to 1568, Alvaro de Mendaña, the 25-year-old nephew of the Governor of Peru, led the first European expedition into the South West Pacific. Previous Spanish navigators had sailed west from Mexico, following courses north of the Equator towards Asia. Mendaña, by contrast, sailed from Callao in a south-westerly direction, searching for islands believed to exist 600 leagues from the Peruvian coast. Incas were said to have visited the islands and brought back "gold and silver, a throne made of copper, a multitude of black slaves and the skin of an animal like a horse".'In February 1568, after a voyage of three months, the Capitano and the Almirante reached islands that the Spaniards were later to name the Solomon Islands. Mendaña and his crew, together with 70 soldiers and four Franciscan friars, used as their base the island of Santa Ysabel, named after the patron saint of the voyage. They spent several months exploring the islands, including San Christoval, Malaita and Guadalcanal, as well as bartering and fighting with the islanders. Mendaña had orders to form a Spanish settlement and, had he done so, it is likely that the Australian coast would soon have been discovered. However, in August 1568 he decided to return to Peru. He sailed northwards through the Gilbert Islands and eastwards to the Californian coast, eventually reaching Callao in July 1569. Two centuries were to elapse before another European, Louis de Bougainville, re-discovered the Solomon Islands.'In 1595 Mendaña made a second Pacific voyage, discovering the Marquesas Islands. He died at Santa Cruz and command of the expedition then passed to the pilot, Pedro Fernandez de Quiros.'Mendana's original report to the Governor of Peru is lost, but two transcripts are held in Spanish archives. The National Library has now acquired another transcript of the report, dating from the eighteenth century. Written in Spanish in a clear hand on good paper, it is 34 pages in length. It describes the voyage from Callao to Santa Ysabel and ends abruptly in early May 1568. It differs slightly from the other transcripts in its use of nautical terms and in other ways; for instance, Mendana's name is spelt correctly, whereas one of the other transcripts refers to him as Davendana. It is a detailed narrative and an important source on the earliest contact between Europeans and the indigenous peoples of the South Pacific.''Stories of King Solomon's gold obtained from Ophir, a land of incalculable wealth somewhere east of Suez, went back to biblical times and haunted the imagination of the European oceanic explorers of the Renaissance, including Columbus. With the Spanish conquest of Peru, a new element was added, for tales circulated that the Incas had found gold and 'black people' in islands lying across the ocean to their west. Prompted by such dreams, and the prospects of converting the heathen, the Spanish, sailing from Peru, attempted to locate these elusive lands, a search which became bound up with the quest for the great Southern Continent. 'The resulting voyages - by Mendaña in 1567-9, Mendaña and Quiros in 1595-6, Quiros and Torres in 1605-6 - are among the most remarkable in the whole history of maritime discovery, alike in their geographical results (long misunderstood as they were) and as a story of high ideals, bitter disillusions and sufferings, baseness and grandeur' (O. H. K. Spate, The Pacific since Magellan I, Canberra, 1979, p. 121).In his bibliographical note on Spanish archival sources, Colin Jack-Hinton (The search for the islands of Solomon, Oxford, 1969) records two versions of the text, one in the Archivo General de Indias, the other in the Muñoz collection in the Real Academia de la Historia. These are transcript copies of the now lost 16th-century original submitted by Mendaña to Lope García de Castro, governor of Peru. No example of the narrative was known to either Alexander Dalrymple (Historical collection of Discoveries in the South Pacific Ocean, 1770) or James Burney (Chronological history of the discoveries in the Pacific Ocean, 1803). The text, which breaks off in May 1568, is noted by Jack-Hinton as 'of considerable value within the framework of source material'. The version in the Muñoz collection was transcribed for the 1864 publication Colección de documentos inéditos relativos al descubrimiento... América y Oceanía V, and an English translation appears in The discovery of the Solomon Islands by Alvaro de Mendaña (Hakluyt Society, 1901, pp. 95-158). Comparison with the Muñoz text as printed in 1864 demonstrates that the present manuscript was prepared by someone able to make intelligent textual emendations, sometimes including matters of nautical terminology.

        Le vite de' piu eccellenti pittori, scultori, e architettori [The Lives of the Artists]

      2nd Edition Florence: Giunti, 1568. FIRST COMPLETE, FIRST ILLUSTRATED, AND MOST SOUGHT AFTER EDITION OF THE FIRST MODERN HISTORY OF ART. [The Second Edition overall.] An exceptional copy, very handsomely bound. Vasari's "book contains the biographies of Italian painters, etc. from the thirteenth to the sixteenth century. They are based on earlier written and printed sources, on oral accounts, on his knowledge of works of art and his own collection of large drawings. Vasari traveled extensively to collect personal information, meeting most of the artists of his time... Michelangelo was his great hero. The Lives are freely laced with stories and anecdotes, some of which are certainly apocryphal... Vasari's excellent sense of narrative, however, and lively style combined with his wide personal acquaintance makes his 'Lives' a vital contribution to our understanding of the character and psychology of the great artists of the Renaissance, a term ('rinascita') which he was the first writer to use... It also contains an autobiography and a valuable treatise on the technical methods employed in the arts. It became a model for subsequent writings on the history of art... For its period it has remained the chief authority and new editions are published regularly" (Printing and the Mind of Man, 88).   This second edition--the first illustrated and the preferred edition--comprises 161 lives, 28 more than the first edition of 1550 and it brings the biographies up to date from 1550 to 1568. The portraits were designed by the author himself (to his contemporaries he was first and foremost a painter and architect) and executed by or under the supervision of Maestro Christofano, probably either Christophoro Coriolano or Christoforo Chreiger. They are accurate and characterful representations of their subjects. Engraved with "architectural title-border, with figures and putti, on the title page of each of the three volumes... The inner border includes a shield with the Medici arms and a cartouche which contains... a view of Florence. The first volume of part three has a Giunta lily device on the title-page. On the verso of the title of the first volume is an allegorical woodcut... repeated at the end of part three. Portrait of Vasari printed as a plate... One hundred forty-four medallion portraits of the artists... set within borders with female figures representing the arts... There are six different border designs... [and] grotesque, arabesque and dolphin tailpieces" (Mortimer, Harvard).Florence: Appresso I Giunti, 1568. Quarto, early eighteenth-century full polished calf with elaborately decorated gilt spines. Three volumes. Light occasional foxing, title border a little shaved (as usual). Elegant early engraved bookplate in each volume. An early issue with illustrations in uncommonly strong, clear impressions. Third volume slightly smaller, light wear to bindings. All three volumes in exquisite uniform early calf. Fine.

        La Imperial Citta d'Augusta

      1568. "Carta topografica raffigurante la città di Augsburg. Sebbene anonima la carta viene assegnata alla mano di Paolo Forlani ed è parte della celebre raccolta di cartografia urbana che questi pubblica, insieme a Domenico Zenoi, nel 1567 con il titolo "Il primo libro delle citta, et fortezze principali del mondo"". L'opera è di incredibile rarità e non ebbe una grande fortuna editoriale. Forse perché le lastre furono acquisite dall'editore Bolognino Zaltieri, che le utilizza per la raccolta di cartografia urbana realizzata da Giulio Ballino, denominata ""De' disegni delle più illustri città e fortezze del mondo"", edita sempre a Venezia solo due anni dopo, nel 1569. Giulio Ballino era un avvocato veneziano che frequentava la casa dei Manunzio già verso il 1530, dedicandosi in gioventù allo studio dei classici. Il libro "De' disegni delle più illustri città, et fortezze del mondo", stampato da Bolognino Zaltieri, è costituito da cinquanta vedute ed una carta geografica. L'opera rappresenta il primo tentativo, nell'ambito dell'editoria italiana, della realizzazione di un testo/atlante delle principali fortezze e città del mondo. A differenza dei suoi predecessori, dei quali utilizza spesso i rami e le iconografie, egli concepisce un'opera unitaria corredata di testi e di indice, della quale, per la prima volta, si è ha conoscenza dell'esatto numero di tavole che la compongono. Sicuramente ispirata all'opera del Du Pinet Plantz, ""Pourtraitz et descriptions de plusieurs ville set forteresses.."", la raccolta del Ballino è molto probabilmente solo una parte del progetto iniziale, molto più ampio. Egli probabilmente intendeva pubblicare un'edizione in latino, sperando di lanciare la sua opera a livello europeo, ma si arrese davanti alla pubblicazione del primo libro del ""Civitates Orbis Terrarum"" di Georg Braun & Fransz Hogenberg, che in qualche modo bruciò parecchie delle iniziative editoriali sull'iconografia urbana. Le carte della raccolta sono datate tra il 1566 ed il 1568; secondo un recente studio di Albert Ganado (1993), trentadue di queste risultano essere ristampe dei rami di Paolo Forlani e di Domenico Zenoi, per la prima volta apparsi ne ""Il primo libro delle città, et fortezze principali del mondo del Forlani"" (1567); questo cospicuo gruppo di tavole è inserito nella raccolta con alcuni ritocchi nelle lastre, che vengono modificate. Altre furono per la prima volta pubblicate da Ferrando Bertelli nel Disegni di alcune più illustri città di fortezze del mondo con aggiunte di alcune isole principali, datato 1568. Il resto delle tavole sono di anonimi incisori di cui l'autore si servì per la sua opera, probabilmente anche per ritoccare le lastre di cui era già in possesso. Alcuni esemplari di questa rara opera recano il frontespizio allegorico inciso da Nicolò Nelli, famoso incisore e calcografo veneziano della seconda metà del '500; altri esemplari viceversa hanno un frontespizio non inciso. Entrambe le versioni sono edite dallo Zaltieri nel 1569. Difficile stabilire quale sia la prima stesura e quale quella successiva, la sola differenza è infatti notabile nel testo al verso delle carte, che può variare nella dimensione dei caratteri. Altra differenza che alcune carte sono numerate al verso, mentre le stesse, esaminate in altri esemplari, sono prive di questo numero di pagina. Per semplice deduzione logica possiamo affermare che gli esemplari privi del numero siano antecedenti, teoria tuttavia non del tutto surrogata dall'esame di più esemplari dell'opera. Acquaforte e bulino, con pieni margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione." "Unsigned map showing Augsburg, ascribed to Paolo Folrani. The map was first published in the incredible rare Paolo Forlani's town book """Il primo libro delle citta, et fortezze principali del mondo"", published in 1567 with a partnership of Domenico Zenoi. The plates then comes in the hand of the publisher Bolognino Zaltieri and published in the De' disegni delle più illustri città e fortezze del mondo"", by Giulio Ballino, in 1569. Giulio Ballino was a Venetian lawyer, a friend of the Manuzio family, really fond of classical studies. His work is the first attempt, in Italy, to realize an atlas/text of the main fortresses and cities in the world. Unlike his predecessors, from whom he copied the iconography, Ballino wanted to realize a complex work, with text and an index, so that the reader could know immediately how many works were inside the book. Following Du Pinet's Plantz, Pourtraitz et descriptions de plusieurs ville set forteresses.. Ballino's work is, with all probability, just the first part of an ambitious, bigger project. May be he wanted to publish a Latin edition, hoping to give his book great fame along Europe, but he had to change his mind when Georg Braun & Fransz Hogenberg published their Civitates Orbis Terrarum, which was then the first book to describe urban iconography. Ballino's plates have been issued between 1566 and 1568; according to Albert Ganado (1993), 32 of these happen to be reprints of Forlani & Zenoi's branches, already published for the first time in Il primo libro delle città, et fortezze principali del mondo (1567); the plates of these engravings have been afterwards modified. Some of them have been published in Bertelli's Disegni di alcune più illustri città di fortezze del mondo con aggiunte di alcune isole principali, (1568). Some examples of this rare work bear an allegorical title page, engraved by the Venetian artist Nicolò Nelli, a popular engraver of the XVI century; other examples bear a blank title page. Both versions have been printed by Zaltieri in 1569. It is quite hard to say which is the first version and which the last one, for the only difference is on the text on verso, with bigger letters in one case. Another difference is that some of the maps in one version have numbers on verso. We might say that those examples without numbers have been printed first, but the analysis of the engravings doesn't support this theory. The engravings listed hereby come from a defective edition; for preciseness of information, we must add that the authorship of every work has been given to the artist that realized it, even if all of them come from Ballino's collection. Copperplate, full wide margins, in excellent condition. Rare." Venezia Venice 285 215

        Miroir Oost & West-Indical, auquel sont descriptes les deux dernieres navigations, faictes es années 1614. 1615. 1616. 1617. & 1618.Amsterdam, Johannes Janssonius [printed by Izaak Elzevier?], 1621. Oblong 4to (17.5 x 23 cm). With 24 (of 25) engraved plates, including 5 double-page and 10 larger folding. Modern vellum.

      - Borba de Moraes, p. 826 ("This French edition is much sought after"); Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC 362; Sabin 89451; Tiele, Bibl. 1030. First and only edition of the French translation of one of the bestsellers of illustrated 17th-century travel literature, describing one of the most famous early voyages around the world by Joris van Spilbergen (1568-1620), a veteran Dutch East Indies naval officer-turned-pirate, undertaken from 1614 to 1618. A short survey of another of the most important early voyages around the world, by Schouten and Le Maire in the years 1615 to 1617, is added at the end (pp. 117-172) with drop-title "Navigationes Australes". It reports Le Maire's proof that Tierra del Fuego is an island and his discovery of what is still called the Strait of Le Maire, an alternative route to the Pacific. Rich in ethnographic detail, the numerous illustrations in the Miroir include oversized penguins, llamas and an Andean condor with a nine-foot wing span. Naval battles, beleaguered Spanish settlements, and newly discovered islands are also depicted in detail, making the work a valuable compendium of adventure on the high seas during the Age of Discovery.With several owner's inscriptions. With a few manuscript annotations in the margin. Lacking the world map. Washed with a brush, leaving light brown steaks on most leaves, and further with an occasional leaf foxed or smudged and an occasional minor tear. Otherwise a good copy of an extraordinary journal.

Erste Ausgabe, komplett selten. - Berühmte Streitschrift des Rektors des Münchner Jesuitenkollegs Jakob Keller (1568-1631): "Mit seinen politischen und historischen Arbeiten stand Keller im Dienst der politischen und dynastischen Zielsetzungen Maximilians I. von Bayern [...] Die bedeutendste kritische Leistung Kellers war dem historischen Bereich gewidmet, der Verteidigung Kaiser Ludwigs des Baiern im Auftrag Herzog Maximilians. Gegen die Darstellung Kaiser Ludwigs in der Fortsetzung der Annales Ecclesiastici des Baronius durch den Dominikaner Abraham Bzovius (Band XIV., 1617) veröffentlichte Keller unter dem Namen des bayerischen Oberstkanzlers Hans Georg Hörwarth von Hohenburg den 'Ludovicus Quartus Imperator defensus contra Bzovium'. Unter Benützung, aber auch Erweiterung und vor allem kritischer Handhabung der von Chr. Gewold gesammelten Quellen gelang es Keller mit großem Scharfsinn, Bzovius Punkt um Punkt zu widerlegen und damit die wissenschaftliche Grundlage für die Neufassung der inkriminierten Passagen durch Bzovius (1625) herzustellen. Das Werk hat einen gesicherten Platz in der bayerischen Historiographie" (NDB XI, 457). - "Sofort von der päpstl. Partei unterdrückt worden [...] Von grösster Seltenheit. So selten, dass es im XVIII.

        Precetti della militia moderna, tanto per mare, quanto per terra. Trattati da diversi nobilissimi ingegni. Ne'quali si contiene tutta l'arte del bombardiero, & si mostra l'ordine che ha da tenere il maestro di campo, quando vuole accampare il suo essercito

      Venice: Heirs of Marchio Sessa, 1568. FIRST EDITION. Very good antiquarian condition. Small 4to. Collation: +4 A-P4 (with final blank P4) = 64 ff. COMPLETE. Sessa's Pegasus device on the title-page (Ascarelli, fig. 81) + 28 woodcuts upwards of 180 x 90 mm in size, of which 11 are full-page. Bound in 19th-century red quarter calf over mottled boards, spine lettered direct in the second compartment. Title-page with unobtrusive mend (1 cm) on lower blank margin; on the verso and opposing page some soiling, otherwise the text is quite clean and crisp. An appealing copy. One of the most significant military treatises of the Italian Renaissance which had international influence. The text is definitive and is beautifully illustrated with exacting woodcuts of military rockets, defense weaponry, bombs, ammunition, compasses, fireballs, mines, fortifications and tunnels created by sappers or combat engineers, a surveying instrument, a rudimentary lifejacket, and even military medicine. Among the most striking woodcuts are those of the soldiers' lances set ablaze, elaborately rendered and minutely described. The author presents what is effectively a compilation of "modern" Italian Renaissance militaria, arranged in 78 maxims and formulas. The "Precetti" is recognized as one of the most influential early book on warfare and weaponry, a practical guide for the newest warfare technology. The importance of the "Precetti della militia moderna" is attested by the fact that it was frequently reprinted for the next 150 years. Girolamo Ruscelli (1504-1566) was a close friend and colleague of Leonardo da Vinci; they often met at each other's homes to do experiments, making distilled medicinal waters and/or explosives. Together they speculated about designs for fortresses and contrived military inventions. Ruscelli described at least one of Leonardo's military inventions the present work (the lifejacket, . Ruscelli was a quintessential polymath so characteristic of the Italian High Renaissance: an authority on military matters. He was the founder of the Roman Accademia dello Sdegno. Cockle, Bibliography of Military Books 663. Mortimer, Italian 450. William Eamon, The Professor of Secrets: Mystery, Medicine, and Alchemy in Renaissance Italy, p. 189. Ayala, in his Bibliografia militare-italiana, pp. 56-57, wrongly records editions of 1548 and 1562 (both are in fact ghosts). Hale, Renaissance War Studies, p. 466, gives a complete list of works and editions and ours is clearly the first.

        Il cavalier Giuseppe Cesari D'Arpino. Un grande pittore nello splendore della fama e nell'incostanza della fortuna.

      XXIII, 634 Seiten. Mit sehr zahlreichen teils farbigen Abbildungen. Blauer Original-Kunstleder-Einband u. farbig illustrierter Schutzumschlag in Originalschachtel. 28,5x25 cm * Monumentalwerk. Beiliegend: Deutsche Übersetzung des Textes (98 Seiten auf 49 losen Blättern). Giuseppe Cesari (* Februar 1568 zu Arpino 3. Juli 1640 in Rom), genannt Il Cavaliere d'Arpino, war ein italienischer Maler. Cesari kam mit 13 Jahren nach Rom und ging hier zunächst den im Vatikan beschäftigten Malern zur Hand. Er schaute ihnen ihre Techniken ab, und es gelang ihm, auf einem Pfeiler einige Satyrn zu malen, was ihm die Unterstützung von Gregor XIII. verschaffte. Bald sah man in ihm den größten Maler Roms. Die Bestellungen häuften sich und er wurde von Clemens VIII. zum Ritter und Direktor von San Giovanni in Laterano erhoben. Der Kardinal Aldobrandini nahm ihn 1600 mit nach Frankreich, wo Heinrich IV. ihm den Orden des heiligen Michael verlieh.Auch in Neapel malte er, musste sich aber von dort vor den Anfeindungen der heimischen Künstler nach Rom flüchten. Mit dem Auftreten der Carracci und des Caravaggio schlug jedoch die römische Schule, die er beherrschte, andere Bahnen ein. Seine Haupttätigkeit in späteren Jahren bestand darum in der Anfertigung von Kartons für die Mosaiken in San Michele und in der Kuppel von St. Peter. Cesari gilt als ein überaus gewandter, mit lebhafter Phantasie begabter Künstler. Seine Arbeiten sind mit Eifer entworfen und von angenehmer Farbgebung. Detailreichtum darf man in seinen Bildern allerdings nicht suchen, besonders in den Werken seiner zweiten Periode, die zu sehr den Charakter von Improvisationen tragen. Sein Hauptwerk sind die Fresken aus der römischen Geschichte im Saal der Konservatoren auf dem Kapitol.

Laster zu einem Spiegel der Welt werden." (Killy Literaturlexikon, Bd. 5, 2009)

      - Title printed in red & black. 103 unnumbered leaves, one blank leaf. Small 8vo, modern vellum over boards. [Colophon]: Augsburg: M. Franck for G. Willer, [1568]. First edition of a Paracelsian rarity. Paracelsus' commentaries on the first five of Hippocrates' Aphorisms had been published the previous year in Cologne. The present edition comprises his commentaries on all 25 aphorisms of the first section, and on six of the second. They are followed by treatises on the medical uses of corals and the herbs hypericum (St. John's worts) and persicaria (peachwort). A slightly different version of the section on hypericum was published in the same year by Adam von Bodenstein (Sudhoff 95). In his preface the anonymous editor gives what he calls an impartial discussion of Paracelsian ideas. He points out that Paracelsus' rude and aggressive style of writing and his personal conduct might have been regrettable, but now, 33 years after his death, the controversy should moderate since there is not such a chasm between the old medical school (Hippocrates and Galen) and iatrochemistry.

Restos de una encuadernación en piel, de la época, de la que se conservan los planos gofrados unidos por una burda lomera en piel moderna. Johannes Cochlæus, uno de los grandes polemistas contra la Reforma en Alemania, había estudiado en Colonia, Nuremberg y Ferrara y contó a lo largo de su vida con la amistad de numerosos humanistas, no obstante su radical desacuerdo con Lutero en sus opiniones sobre el sacramento de la ordenación de los clérigos, la eucaristía y la relación entre el libre arbitrio y la gracia. Dedicó toda su vida, a partir de 1520, a luchar contra la Reforma para intentar preservar la unidad de la Iglesia, participando en todas las Convenciones y Foros, como Worms, Augsburgo y Trento, y escribiendo más de doscientos libros y folletos polémicos, en los que siempre puso de manifiesto su voluntad de compromiso, junto a su portentosa erudición y conocimiento de las posibilidades teológicas, con lo que quedó para la Historia como una figura principalísima de la renovación de la Iglesia Católica Romana en Alemania.
