Jesuit Dominis King James Croatia
Prohibited Book by Jesuit Dominis King James Croatia - First edition London 1618
London: 1618. First edition of a polemic fierce attack on the Vatican, the Pope and the Catholic Church published anonymously by the famous erudite Jesuit theologian, Primate of Croatia and Dalmatia, Marco Antonio De Dominis (1560-1624). The book was immediately prohibited and placed on the Index. No copies located in the United States according to WorldCat. The work was issued in London following Dominis exile to the United Kingdom supported by King James VI and I (1566-1625). Dominis became a favorite of King James gaining considerable status within the Anglican Church. He published several anti-catholic works. In 1622 he repented and published a violent attack this time against the Church of England. He returned to Rome and was given a Papal pension. In 1624, Dominis was condemned of heresy.
