1575 Nullifying Judicial Sentences (in Latin - De Nullitatibus Processuum)- Sebastian Vantius (Jurist). Canon Law. Council of Trent
Gymnicus, Cologne 1575 - An interesting work that is often cited in discussions of the origins of Vatican marriage annulment laws. Sebastian Vantius was a Jurist who took part in the Council of Trent, his main input recorded largely being about the annulment of marriage. This is his written work on the concept of annulments; although marriage is discussed it extends to all annulment of judicial sentences. Sebastian Vantius went on to become the Bishop of Orvieto. He is remembered for a critical and humorous nature; it is recorded he once said of a French colleague, "How much does this rooster sing?" The binding is unique in that you can still see the veins and hair follicles of the vellum; useful as an aid in the teaching of the use of parchment. Physical Attributes - Measures 15 x 10 x 5 cm, octavo. Parchment binding. Pages - (4) xvi, 704, large index unnumbered but signatures zz to fff8 Condition - See pictures. Rebound, with the vellum spine label cut out and re-used. No writing on the free front endpapers. Title page has several old ownership inscriptions. There were some edge losses throughout the book, but someone has went through with Japanese tissue and repaired them all. Some underlining, although I don't see any annotations (one or two may be hiding). Some damp staining (tide marks). 1100 grams [Attributes: Hard Cover]
