Ioannis Gersonis Cancellarii Parisiensis; De Imitatione Christi, Lib IIII
Lugduni (lyon): Apud Horatium Cardon. Very Good+ with no dust jacket. 1608. Vellum. 370;554;87 pages; Jean Charlier de Gerson was a French scholar, educator, reformer, and poet, Chancellor of the University of Paris, a guiding light of the conciliar movement and one of the most prominent theologians at the Council of Constance. He was one of the first thinkers to develop what would later come to be called natural rights theory, and was also one of the first individuals to defend Joan of Arc and proclaim her supernatural vocation as authentic. Width: 3.5" Height: 5.25". Bound in half vellum with marbled paper covered boards. The volume is a Latin edition of the title "The Imitation of Christ." Tradition declares that during his sojourn he translated or adapted from the Latin a work upon eternal consolation, which afterwards became very famous under the title of The Imitation of Christ, attributed to Thomas à Kempis. It has, however, been proven that this work really was written by a Kempis and not by John Gerson or the abbot Gerson. Contents lightly but pleasantly aged. Nice decorative border of Title page. .
