About this item

Ethnically Jewish converso humanistic scholar Vives (1493-1540) left Spain and spent most of his life in the Low Countries. His family suffered greatly from the Inquisition, so he tended to avoid theology in his scholarly works until the very end. On the Truth of the Christian Faith was published posthumously in 1540. It begins with the true end of humanity, the nature of mankind and God, the universe, divine providence, and the soul's immortality. Then it takes up revealed sources, discussing the life of Christ, the Trinity, the origins of the New Testament, the history of the Church, the end of the world, and the day of judgement. Exposition gives way to dialogue then, first between a Christian and a Jew, then between a Christian and a Muslim. A final book reverts to explication to describe the superiority of Christianity over any other persuasion. This edition presents the Latin original with facing pages of English translation.
