  • Homilies of Saint Charles Borromeo, 1747

    Homilies of Saint Charles Borromeo, 1747

    $465.00

    This is an amazing antique collection of homilies written by Saint Charles Borromeo in the late 1500s. This volume begins with a homily focused on the confessors of Milan, and includes the homily for the Solemnity of Easter 1584, and an address to the ordinands for the year 1577. The book is in Latin and is volume 4 from a set of 5.

    Saint Charles Borromeo was the cardinal archbishop of Milan from 1564 to 1584. Among the great reformers of the troubled sixteenth century, Borromeo helped lead the movement to combat the inroads being made by the Protestant Reformation. He was a leading figure during the Counter-Reformation and was responsible for significant reforms in the Catholic Church, including the founding of seminaries for the education of priests. He is honored as a saint in the Catholic Church. Saint Charles Borromeo was canonized in 1610. Feast Day: November 4.

    This book is in excellent condition considering it is almost 300 years old. The binding and spine are very tight. The pages are exceptionally heavy-weight and strong with no tears. As this was housed in a library, we believe it was rarely opened.

     

    Condition: There is a library stamp and a remnant of wax pencil marks on the first page. Please see pictures.

    Dimensions: 10” tall x 7.25” wide x 2” deep
