Institutionum historiae ecclesiasticae antiquae et recentioris libri quatuor : Ex ipsis forntibus insigniter emendati plurimis accessionibus locupletati, variis obervationibus illustrati
By Johann Lorenz von Mosheim
Mid 18th century Church history written in Latin. Author of the study is Johann Lorenz von Mosheim, German Lutheran church historian. His first appearance in the field of literature was in a polemical tract against John Toland. This work is titled “Vindiciae antiquae christianorum disciplinae” and it was published in 1720. Year later a volume of “Observationes sacrae” followed it. These works secured for him a call to the University of Helmstedt. There he gained a title “professor ordinarius” in 1723. The “Institutionum historiae ecclesiasticae libri IV” appeared in 1726. In the same year, he was appointed by the duke of Brunswick abbot of Marienthal. This is one of the more important works regarding church history in Luteranism.
