Lubbertus, Sibrandus"
Sibrandi Lvbberti Commentarii, ad Nonaginta novem Errores Conradi Vorstii."
Franeker, Ulderick Balck, 1613. (46, 2) 841 p. Contemporary folding Vellum, 12° (The binding is made of recycled vellum with manuscript text in red and brown ink, text block has some browning and water-stains at places and the final page which only has text on the recto is partially in facsimile. With several ownership-entries on the fly-leaves and titlepage and a few annotations and underlinings in the main part of the text by an old hand. Polemical work with 99 arguments against Vorstius (and socinianism) by Dutch Calvinist theologian Sibrandus Lubbertus (ca.1555-1625). The work was written to counter the views of Conrad Vorstius (1569-1622), Arminius' successor of the theology chair at Leiden, and to remove him from his position into university faculty as he was accused of Socinianism and heterodoxy. With this work Lubbertus rose to the attention of both civil authorities and other theologians starting a series of polemical publications of which are best known that of Hugo Grotius who defended the right of civil authority to place whomever they wished into university faculty and King James I of England who became obsessed with the controversy as Lubbertus called out for international backing for his positon by English divines. A reasonable copy, the titlepage illustrated with a large printers device depicting Icarus and his father when he fell into the sea.)."
