Summa de casos de consciencia.
En Salamanca: Por Juan Fernandez, 1597. 4to (19.5 cm; 7.75"). Vol. II of 2 ONLY. 391, [1 blank], 78 pp.; [1 (blank)], [64] ff. The subtitle of this volume in some editions is " Negociacion-usuras. Tratado del orden iudicial que los ministros generales y prouinciales y los demas juezes eclesiasticos y seculares han de hazer en sus visitas. Con advertencias muy provechosas para confessores, con un orden iudicial a la postre...." And indeed, the thorny topic of usury is addressed here with Portuguese-born Rodrigues finding many of the standard practices involving the church, money, and land to be prohibited forms of usury.    But Rodrigues (1545–1619), a Franciscan, goes on to discuss whether attending bullfights is inappropriate for priests and novices, restrictions on printers of religious books, differences between just and unjust war and what is licit or illicit in each, heresy, inheritance, marriage, magic, dancing, astrology, sodomy and bestiality, slavery and much, much more.    There is a separate 78 page section at the end of the volume entitled "Tratado del orden judicial que los ministros generales y provinciales, y los demas juezes ecclesiasticos y seculares han de hazer en sus visitas."    An important contribution to canon law, handbooks for confessors, judges' handbooks, church doctrine, and the study of morals in early modern Europe.         Ruiz Fidalgo, Salamanca, 1473. This edition not in Palau. Volume II (of 2) only. Early vellum over light boards with remnants of button and loop closures. "Maria, Jesus" and "Jose" in ink on closed edges of the volume. Top of title-page soiled and some small stains in a few margins. Some browning due to impurities in water during manufacture and later reaction to humidity.
