About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for A compendious abstract of the history of the Church of Christ, from its first foundation to the eighteenth century. by Gahan, William..

Description:

First American edition. Gahan, an Irish Augustinian, was famous for his part in the absolutely rip-snorting Dunboyne will case (see the DNB). Gahan had received the grandly apostate bishop Lord Dunboyne back into the Catholic Church against the commands of his archbishop, and urged him to revoke his will in which he bequeathed one of Dunboyne family estates to the University of Maynooth. After Dunboyne's death a sister contested the will, and during the trial Gahan's refusal to break the seal of the confessional led to his imprisonment for contempt of court. => The present work shows this independent Augustinian in his role as a teacher and writer. Provenance: Released as a duplicate from the greatest collection of American Catholica in the world, the Georgetown University Library, with a few faint rubber-stamps. 8vo (18 cm; 7.125"). 408 pp. Parsons 468; Shaw & Shoemaker 31551. On Dunboyne, see: Dictionary of National Biography, VIII, 66?67. Contemporary sheep with round spine and gilt rules forming spine compartments, red leather gilt spine label; leather abraded at corners and light rubbing otherwise. Light to moderate age-toning and foxing with the occasional other spot; offsetting to early and late leaves from binding's leather turn-ins. Ex-Georgetown as above: paper call number label on spine, rubber-stamps on title-page and margins of two other leaves. A neat copy, on shelf and in hand. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Gale Ecco, Print Editions, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve the century of revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own: digitization of epic proportions to preserve these invaluable works in the largest archive of its kind. Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars.The Age of Enlightenment profoundly enriched religious and philosophical understanding and continues to influence present-day thinking. Works collected here include masterpieces by David Hume, Immanuel Kant, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, as well as religious sermons and moral debates on the issues of the day, such as the slave trade. The Age of Reason saw conflict between Protestantism and Catholicism transformed into one between faith and logic -- a debate that continues in the twenty-first century.++++The below data was compiled from various identification fields in the bibliographic record of this title.
