John Clérée dominican friar, preacher of the Late Middle Ages, is a little and unjustly forgotten nowadays. He was however very well known in the time of the kings Charles VIII and Louis XII, whose he has been the confessor. This study is based on the Quadragesimale said of Valenciennes.

Antonius de Vercelli. Sermones quadragesimales de XII mirabilibus Christianae fidei. Illustrated with 2 multi-colored initials. The beginning of the text nicely printed in red, text in gothic type, in two columns, 51 lines to a page. 8vo. Contemporary hard vellum binding, remounted. Venetiis, Johannes et Gregorius de Gregorii de Forlivio, February 16, 1492. First Incunabula Edition. Antonius de Vercelli was, for approximately thirty years, one of the leading and most influential political counsellors of the pre-eminent families in Italy's early Renaissance: the Medici family in Florence and the Sforza family in Milan. This collection of his Sermones (Discourses) has significant importance and the added weight of someone deeply involved in the political turmoil of the late 15th century. The context and political value of these discourses helped Machiavelli define "The Art of the State." Vercelli is also a significant religious figure, having had much influence in Italian theologies. 18th century… Read More
