About this Item

12mo. viii, 392pp. Brown leather covered boards with green title-plate and gilt borders. Green speckled edges. Brown marble decorative endpapers. Frontispiece drawing of L'Abbé Fénélon with a group of children. A comparison of Jewish and Christian practices by Abbé Claude Fleury, a leading early 18th century French cleric and the confessor to Louis XV. The vast majority of Fleury's section on Judaism deals with biblical Israel, with a brief discussion at the end as to how post biblical Judaism degenerated into Pharisees, Sadducees and Essenes before moving on to Christianity, which Fleury saw as the true heir to the biblical religion. His understanding of Judaism came largely from the Bible, Josephus, Church fathers such as Origen, Tertullian and Clement of Alexandria and Johannes Buxtorf the Elder. Text in French. Stamp from previous owner. Significant wear to cover. Some foxing to page edges. Binding in overall fair to good-, interior in good to good+ condition. Stamp: "Societe Israelite de Conferences et de Lecture". Bookseller Inventory # 31388
