Per Thomam Portaeum. 1611 1st ed Huguenot Mornay Mystery of Iniquity Pope Paul ANTICHRIST Hobbes RARE Philippe de Mornay was a 16th-century French Protestant author who published anti-Catholic and anti-Papacy treatises. As a Huguenot apologist, Mornay wrote The Mystery of the Iniquity which was an attack on the papacy highlighting the Pope s abuse of power within the Catholic Church. Mornay follows the progression of the abuse of papal powers beginning in the Middle Ages. Mornay draws comparisons between Pope Paul V and the Antichrist, calling him the Caligula of the Catholic Church! Following the release of this book, Mornay was immediately condemned by the Catholic Church and Cardinal Richelieu who called this work a detestable book . By 1621, any known copies still found in Saumur were gathered and burned at Saumur Castle once Mornay finally left his post as governor. This book was known to heavily influence Thomas Hobbes who borrowed historical details from Mornay.
