CARACCIOLUS, ROBERTUS. 1425-1495.
Sermones de quadragesimales, de adventu, de timore.... Venice: Gabriel de Grassis, 1485.
4to (210 x 146 mm). 207 (of 386) leaves only, being parts 1-2 of the Sermons, without the Epistolae. a8 (lacking a1) b-z8 [1]-[3]8. 49 lines, double column, some printed guide letters. Period rubrication throughout with capitals in alternating red and blue, plus headlines, stops and paragraph marks. 20 pages of period manuscript continuing the text bound at end. Late 17th century vellum, spine lettered in manuscript. Manuscript title holed from ink-burn, manuscript addenda with occasional slight loss from ink-burn, some very mild marginal staining and occasional foxing, turn-ins springing.

THIRD VENICE EDITION. Comprises Caracciolus's sermons and the opening of Dominicus Bollanus's De Conceptione Beatæ Virginis Mariæ. Bollanus's work was added to the Index Librorum Prohibitorum in the decade after the present edition was published and about half of the known copies suppress this work. This copy is interesting for the inclusion of the completion of Bollanus's treatise in nearly contemporary manuscript. Bollanus interpreted the Immaculate Conception as a series of miracles rather than a single miraculous event. His text was much discussed and in print for decades after its composition as few other theologians treated of the Immaculate Conception in such detail, but it did not escape the attention of the Holy See and was banned for about 20 years. Goff C-133; Hain-Copinger 4461.
