"Jean Calvin, étudiant en droit, publie en 1532, en langue latine, son premier livre : une édition, richement commentée, du célèbre texte de Sénèque, le De clementia ou Traité de la clémence, ancêtre de l'important courant littéraire des "miroirs du prince". Produit de l'humanisme juridique, cet ouvrage, antérieur à la conversion de Calvin, constitue le témoignage le plus substantiel sur le jeune Calvin et est donc une étape essentielle dans la compréhension de son cheminement intellectuel et spirituel. Le Commentaire de Calvin est ici traduit pour la première fois en langue française et il est proposé dans une édition bilingue."--Page 4 of cover

Commentaries on the Epistles of Paul the apostle to the Philippians, Colossians, and Thessalonians by Jean Calvin( Book )

1 edition published in 1948 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Protestant theologian John Calvin explores Paul's letters in this book translated from the 16th-century Latin original. Originally trained as a lawyer, Calvin broke from the Catholic Church in the early 1500s and joined the swelling Reformation. Calvin's view of Christianity was heavily influenced by the Augustinian tradition, which led to his development of the doctrine of predestination for which he is most famous. He was also a tireless orator and trainer of preachers. This book contains Calvin's commentaries on the epistles to Timothy, Titus and Philemon. These epistles are called "pastoral epistles" because they are addressed to individuals with pastoral oversight of churches and are concerned with issues of Christian doctrine and leadership
