Vita Christi ex euangeliis e scriptoribus orthodoxis

Paris: Thielman Kerver, (1539). Hardcover. 673 pages. 15.5 x 11 cm. Lacks title page. Printed in double columns in miniscule Gothic type, 58 lines in length. Ludolphus of Saxony 1295 – 1378), also known as Ludolphus de Saxonia and Ludolph the Carthusian, was a German Roman Catholic theologian of the fourteenth century. The Vita Christi, his principal work, is not a simple biography, but a history, a commentary on the Gospels with large texts borrowed from the Fathers, a series of dogmatic and moral dissertations, of spiritual instructions, meditations and prayers, in relation to the life of Christ, from birth to His Ascension. It has been called a summa evangelica, so popular at that time, in which the author has condensed and resumed all that over sixty writers had said before him upon spiritual matters.
