Rare and fascinating works bound together. In his commentaries, Cocceio tries to formulate a dogmatic biblical aspect closer to faith than to theological speculation. To speak of the relationship between God and humanity, Cocceio uses more readily the concept of Covenant, thus interpreting the relationship between God and creation in a dynamic way. Cocceio defines the pact as "nothing but a divine declaration on the method of perceiving the love of God and obtain union and communion with him". Although it has been established on the initiative of God, the pact requires the response of man. As in previous development of covenant theology, Cocceio draws a distinction between the covenant of works and covenant of grace. The climax of the series of pacts gives a strong character in his eschatological system. His historical interpretation of the Old Testament leads, among other things, to deny that the commandment to observe the Sabbath is stipulated in the earthly paradise. These and other ideas, lead to disputes which continued until after his death. His followers later combined his theological system with the Cartesian philosophy, the so-called "Cocceio-Cartesian school". Cocceio's commentaries on various books of the 'Old Testament and his Hebrew Lexicon (1669), have been widely used in Reformed circles until the nineteenth century. Cocceio had a significant influence on Franz Burmann (1628 - 1679) and Herman Witsius (1636 - 1708). Cocceio died of plague in 1669. Modern binding in excellent condition. Tiny scratch on title-label on spine. Minor and sporadic browning throughout. Slight creasing on outer margin of plates. Out of the 19 original plates representing the Temple, 8 are missing (III, V, VII, VIII, XII, XIV, XVI, XVIII). One plate is detached but present. Text in Latin. Binding in overall near fine, interior in very good condition.
