Author: Limborch, Philippus van:

Title: Theologia Christiana Ad praxin pietatis ac promotionem pacis Christianae unice directa. Editio altera.

Publication: Amstelaedami [Amsterdam]: Apud Henricum Wetstenium, 1695.

Description: Folio, pp. [xvi] 852 [xxiv] (incl. frontispiece). Worming in lower margin throughout, starting as trails and narrowing to a single hole until the index where it expands slightly again, one additional trail occasionally touching characters in last line of text across five gatherings (4S-4Y), a bit of light dampmarking and dustsoiling, a few small stains. Contemporary dark panelled sprinkled calf, rebacked preserving the original spine, new red morocco lettering piece, corners renewed, new endpapers, old leather a bit scratched.

The second edition of the Dutch theologian Phillip van Limborch's most important work, a system of Christian theology based on Simon Episcopius and Stephan Curcellaeus. It stands as the first and most complete exposition of Arminianism, and was translated into English in 1702. Limborch's other claim to fame was his close epistolary friendship with John Locke.
