1 Thiers, Johannis Baptist (Jean-Baptiste) De Stola in Archidiaconorum Visitationibus Gestanda a Paroecis, Disceptatio
Paris Du Puis 1674 First Edition (?) Hardcover Good+ with no dust jacket 
Leather is scuffed, corners bumped with boards showing, chipping along edges of spine, interior toned and slightly musty, but binding is tight. There is a bookplate on the front pastedown from a Jesuit library and a name in very small letters on the ffep. There is some darkening along the edges of the pastedowns. Not a bad copy of this fairy well known (at least in ecclesiastical circles! ) book. ; 16mo 6" - 7" tall; 391 pages; Jean-Baptiste Thiers (1636-1703) was a French priest in the diocese of Chartres who was obsessively opposed to archdiaconal privilege. This is a 391 page treatise written to justify the wearing of the stole by a cure' during an archdiaconal visitation. Thiers other works include such topics as a history of wig-wearing, the function of church bells, and siuperstitions connected with the sacraments. The book is written in Latin. An excellent reference is an article in Church History, March 2008 by Paul Scott, Vested Struggles: The Social and Ecclesiological Significance of Stoles in Seventeenth-Century France.
