First Latin editions of Drieberge’s most important treatises on the Remonstrant doctrines. Drieberge studied at the Remonstrant Seminary in Amsterdam and was minister in successively Noordwijk, Utrecht, and Amsterdam. In 1737 he was appointed professor at the Remonstrant Seminary, in which capacity he wrote the treatises above. De praedestinatione et gratia libercan be considered as a late response to Johan van den Honert’s De gratia Dei, non universali sed particulari (1725), but was intended first and foremost as a manual for students. It was translated into Dutch in 1781. In his Libri duo, unus de bonis novi foederis et futuro hominum statu, alter de baptismo et S. coena Drieberge sets forth in brief chapters the Remonstrant doctrines of salvation and the sacraments. – Top of spine slightly damaged, library bookplate on upper pastedown, and library stamp on first title page.
