Description: 76 leaves, some browning and pin worm holes, small defect on title page effecting 1 word. Gothic type, title printed within fine woodcut border dated 1521 of cherubs playing music, drawing Mars in a cart, etc. Short slim 4to, plain 19th Century vellum (slightly bowed), all edges red. Erphurdie: [Matthes Maler], 1524. A very good(+) copy.

Comments: First Edition of this rare Anti-Reformation tract by a fellow Augustinian who initially shared Luther's enthusiasms for change, but, as the movement to reform became more radical, Arnoldi placed religion unity above all other issues and began working against the Protestants. Very much of a personal position statement, this twelve part dialog between the author (speaking in the first person) and Egidius Mechler touches many controversial doctrinal points with a particular strong attack on the marriage of clerics. Some of the asides in the repartee are in German. -- Pegg 138; Hase 528.
