Breviloquio moral practico, en que se contienen las sesenta y cinco proposiciones prohibidas por N. SS. P. Innocencio XI declaradas por via de expugnacion
Mexico: Por la Viuda de Bernardo Calderon Small 8vo (14.5 cm; 5.75"). [10], 35, xii., [8] ff.. 1681 Here for the first time a Mexican explains the reasoning behind “Sanctissimus Dominus,” the papal bull that Innocent XI issued in 1679 condemning => 65 propositions that had been examined by the Inquisition and found to be contrary to the tenets and teachings of the Church. The Roman Catholic Church believed that the condemned propositions favored a liberal approach to moral theology, many of them being based in probabilism, a path of reasoning followed by the Jesuits — a path totally rejected by the conservative orders such as the Augustinians, and definitely rejected by the Dominicans who dominated the Holy Office.Velasco presents the condemned concepts (printed in italic type) one by one and then explains why each has been condemned by the Inquisition. He was a Franciscan and "Lector de Visperas de Theología . . . en esta Nueva-España."The twelve-page appendix contains 45 propositions that Pope Alexander VII had condemned, here with summaries of what other writers had done to explain the reasoning for their condemnation. The propositions were mostly Jansenist.The work is from the press of one of Mexico's famed "widow printers," Paula Benavides, the widow of Bernardo Calderon.Sole edition.Provenance: Undated (late 17th- or early 18th-century) ownership inscription of the Convent of San Antonio of Queretaro on the verso of the title-page, faded. Partial marca de fuego on top edge, undeciphered because it is so partial.Via NUC and WorldCat we locate only two copies in U.S. libraries, but we know of a third. Searches of COPAC, CCPB, and the OPAC of the Spanish National Library find no copies in Britain or Spain. The OPAC of the Mexican national library on the other hand, shows seven copies held there. Contemporary limp vellum, no evidence of ties; rear cover with brown staining and piece of rear pastedown excised, with vellum a little small for the text block. Faint and sometimes noticeable waterstain in lower corner of some leaves.
