About this Item

Spencer (1601?71, spelled "Spenser" on title-page; sometimes known as John Tyrwhitt) "matriculated at Christ's College, Cambridge, in 1618 and during his time in Cambridge converted to the Roman Catholic church. He joined the Society of Jesus in Watten on 14 March 1626. From the noviciate he moved to Li?ge to study theology in either 1628 or 1629. He was ordained priest on 18 March 1632. He completed his final year of Jesuit formation, tertianship, in Ghent in 1634" (DNB online). From then until his death he served or worked variously as a church prefect, catechist, missionary, professor of moral theology, controversialist, and military chaplain. He lived in England and on the continent. In defending Catholicism he addresses many of the doctrinal issues and religious practices that were contentious: e.g., the worship of saints, angels, and holy images (and the making of the latter); justification by faith alone; purgatory; and the merit of good works. The work is printed single-column, in roman with some italic, and with woodcut initials and tailpieces. It ends with an index. 8vo (15.5 cm; 6.125"). [16], 253, 252?65, 268?369, 400?405, [9] pp. (pagination erratic; book complete). Wing (rev. ed.)
