Withspecial engraved t.p. with allegorical depiction of Christ carrying the cross, surrounded by ten artists at easels painting scenes from his life (as well as a few questionable profane subjects). The vovelle : The centers of the engraving and the volvelle (through which a string passes) are reinforced with small paper roundels printed with the monograms of Christ. The numbers are keyed to an "Indiculus orbitae" that follows (Bb1r-Bb2r). There a number, having been selected, is provided with a phrase from various Latin authors (listed on Bb2v), and a reference to one of the hundred sections that comprise the main text. It is suggested in Bibliotheca Belgica that this game may have been intended as a pious alternative to such superstitious books as Thuys der fortvnen. Veridicus Christianus emphasizes the Society of Jesus' investment in thinking in, though, and about visual images that exemplify the supreme mystery of God. Published as a… Read more

Description:
Nicolas de Orbellis' commentary on John Duns Scotus' commentary on Peter Lombard's Sententiae. He seems to have entered the monastery of the Observantines, founded in 1407, one of the first in France.
He was professor of theology and philosophy in the University of Angers, where he enjoyed great reputation as an expounder of the teaching of John Duns Scotus. After 1465 he wrote his chief work, a commentary on the Four Books of Sententiae 'Sentences'.
He died at Rome in 1475 and was interred in the church of the Ara Coeli on the Capitoline. Under the entry for the word Dorbel, the Oxford English Dictionary gives the date of his death as 1455. The meaning of Dorbel (based on the name of Nicholas de Orbellis) is given as: a scholastical pedant, a dull-witted person, dolt. Yet Wulf refers this book as "the classic handbook of the Franciscan school", furthermore , it went through at least 15 editions. See Stegmüller: Repertory, n. 592 (the following editions are recorded: Paris 1488; 1498; Rouen e. 1499;… Read more

Parks, Dunton, 339; Keynes, Donne, 46a;CBEL II, 344No one would ever suggest that Dunton didn't write as much as he could but, Dunton was a bit of an exaggerator, this book does not contains in fact there are only 139. The subjects here vary from the whimsical to the scatological, and the arrangement is haphazard, with a poem on toothache following an essay on cuckoldry, etc. Eight of the paradoxes are in fact by John Donne, though his name is nowhere mentioned - not even in the list of the title page. Among the paradoxes argued herein .."
Nescience: or, a paradox proving we know nothing.
He is the Happiest Man who has neither Mony nor Friend?
