Description

Volume 1 from a set of the Summa Theologiae in Latin from 1581. This set has 4 volumes and each item is 34 cm tall. This particular volume is 25 cm long and 5.5 cm wide. There is a bookplate in the front cover bearing the name “Wallworth” and a coat of arms. This set was published in Lyon, France. This particular item is one of our oldest copies of the Summa, which makes it a point of interest, but another reason is that surrounding the text of the Questions and Articles is commentary, which creates a striking visual compared to the other sets that we have. This commentary is from Thomas de Vio Cajetan, who was the Master of the Order of Preachers from 1508-18 and a Cardinal. Cardinal Cajetan is best known for his defense of the Catholic Church against Martin Luther during the Reformation.
