This is a reply to Padre Fray Manuel Bautista de Castro's @Crisis doxologica, apologetica y juridica por el monachato legitimo de el maximo Padre San Geronimo en sus Congregaciones monachales de España, Portugal, y Lombardia . Madrid: Bernardo Peralta, 1730. The text is concerned with the priority of the Hieronymites in Spain, i.e., when they were established and how much authority they have or ought to have. The Hieronymite order, following the rule of St. Augustine, controlled royal monasteries such as the Escorial and Santa Maria de Guadalupe in Extremadura in Spain and the Jerónimos monastery at Belém in Portugal. Beginning on the third unnumbered leaf and continuing to the final preliminary leaf are "Memorias para la vida de D. Luis de Salazar," including a "Cathalogo de las obras impressa, y manuscritas de Don Luis de Salazar, formado del de Frankenau, y de su Bibliotheca manuscrita" of four pages. Don Luis was a leading genealogist, having written extensively on the subject, and his library was rich in genealogical manuscripts. An interesting biographical detail is that Don Luis's bed was normally covered with books. He was known as an expert in both civil and canon law, using his knowledge of the latter on several occasions to attempt to resolve disputes between religious orders.---- Palau 286838. Whitehead S48.
