Brvxellis: Lambertum Marchant, 1673. Editio quinta, 12mo, pp. [16], 461, [3]; woodcut device on title page with head- and tail-pieces and decorated initials throughout; late 18th-century dark brown calf, gilt spine in 6 compartments with author lettered in gilt in one, a.e.g., extremities worn with spine ends chipped away and joints beginning to crack, text pages with light scattered browning and spotting, and a few trimmed with loss of running heads and page numbers; a good, sturdy copy overall. A collection of works on the Semipelagian controversy, mostly by St. Augustine but also including essays by St. Prosper of Aquitaine and Hilary, Bp. of Arles and head of the Semipelagian party. The Semipelagians believed that salvation could be begun by unaided human will but required grace to accomplish it, the Pelagians that salvation could be achieved solely through human effort; St. Augustine argued that grace was necessary for salvation from beginning to end.
