Biblical Commentary, St. Paul

Description

This second incunabula is from 1498, printed by Boneto Locatelli, and published by Ottoviano Scotto in Venice. It is a printing of Aquinas’s Super Epistolas Sancti Pauli, or his commentary on the Letters of St. Paul. This example is in Latin, 261 leaves, and is approximately 21.5 cm long, 29 cm tall, and 4.5 cm wide. Although an imperfect copy, with some of the text being slightly offset and some trimming grazing the text, it is still an interesting copy with early marginalia and woodcut initials. This is a wonderful copy, not only because of its physical quirks, but also because it is an example of one of St. Thomas’s Biblical commentaries. This copy, along with the manuscript of his Commentary of Book IV of the Sentences of Peter Lombard, offer snippets of his explanations of some of the most important works in Western Christianity.
