    To be honest my English gramma is not good enough. If my gramma was really good than i would love to spend time in transelating these kinds of works like Voetius ,Mastricht, A Marck & Oomius.

    Selectarum Disputationum

    Four of the five volumes of the Latin Selectarum Disputationum may be downloaded for free. If you know Latin, Voetius is the best undiscovered Reformed author in the world. It is a fascimile, but still quite readable, and easier by far than, say, Caryl's sermons on Job.

    1. Go to http://gallica.bnf.fr/

    2. Click on recherche.

    3. Under Mots du titre, type in "disputationum."

    4. Under the fourth result, click on "consulter la notice"

    5. Click on pars 1.

    6. Click on telecharger

    7. Click on "ok" at the bottom of the screen

    8. After the document is ready, there will be a clickable phrase "en cliquant ici" in blue in the middle of the page. *Right-click* on that phrase, and "save target as" whatever and wherever you want to save it. Repeat instructions 5-8 for the other parts. (go back from the pop-up window to do so).

    Lane,
    Interesting. I'll have to get those. I had an obscure Voetius research question I could not resolve a few years ago when I was writing the intro to the Anonymous Writings of George Gillespie. If you know much about Voet maybe you can help me finally resolve that?

    Sorry, I don't know anything about Voetius, except that he was the Dutch John Owen. I just got a hold of this reference from Wes White. You should ask Richard Muller.

    Thanks Lane; you wouldn't happen to have a contact email you could PM me would you?

    Thanks Lane, that's amazing! I had no idea that was available.

    What a gift.

    Voetius was brilliant. His critique of middle knowledge has never been answered.

    book.google.com

    And get a load of books.google.com, which has many, many things of note. I have downloaded Du Moulin, Davenant, Ames, Lightfoot, Vitringa, Melanchthon, Fairbairn (the typology is on there!), and others. Available, but not downloadable are Bengel's Gnomon (English and Latin), and Pictet.

    Has anyone read The Desperate Cause of the Papists (1635) by Voetius?

    Jeremiah Burroughs refers to it in Irenicum, p. 181, as "that learned piece of Voetius."

    And Richard Baxter says in A Christian Directory, p. 276, that "[t]he Papists have hitherto insisted on the necessity of successive right ordination; but Voetius 'de desperata Causa Papatus' hath in this so handled them, and confuted Jansenius, as hath indeed shewed the desperateness of that cause."

    Why the price difference? I checked the link, and it was only $6.

    When I posted the links 7 months ago, the price at Amazon was $99.95.
