RICARDO RUSCA. Martyrium B. Memoriae Nicolai Rusca archipresbyteri sondriensis in Rhetia superiori, sub Dioecesi Curiensi, a Lutherocalvinianis praedicantibus.. Ingolstadt: Ex Typographeo Ederiano apud Elisabetham Angermariam viduam, 1620. First Edition. Very rare biography of the life and martyrdom of Italian priest Blessed Nicolo Rusca (1563-1618), beatified in 2013. Rusca was born in tiny Italian-speaking region of Switzerland and spent his life ministering to the Catholic population strattling the border of Italy and Switzerland. Because of the inroads of Protestantism in the region, Rusca inevitably was caught up in the controversial atmosphere, and was eventually captured, tortured and killed in Graubunden in 1618 under suspicion of having aided in the persecution of Protestants. Nothing is known of the author of this biography, Ricardo Rusca, but it is likely that he is a family relative since he has the same surname. Very important contemporary source material of this little-known priest. 4to, [2], 125, [1]. Bound in modern wrappers. No copies recorded in U.S. institutions. [Attributes: First Edition]
Bookseller: Zinos Books [St. Paul, MN, U.S.A.]
