Labyrinthi Ab Aegyptiis Positi Lavdes, cum Mvndi A Deo Conditi Encomiis Expensae
In the Latin language. By Georg Stengel
An extremely rare edition of 16th-century work written by Georg Stengel, German Jesuit, philosopher, and theologian, member of The Society of Jesus. Stengel believed that all the punishments of God point to the need for implacable persecution of witches on the Franconian model. Stengel wrote 70 Latin and German works, including poems, memoirs, and polemical writings. Among the polemical literature include his treatises against his conversation to Lutheran religious Brothers Jacob Reihing. This is the only copy currently available for sale worldwide
