1693 Diocese of Augsburg Germany Catholic Decrees Doctrine Eucharist Customs

A rare 1693 edition of the Creed of the Diocese of Augsburg taken from the original from 1610. This book discusses Catholic doctrine, catechisms, Christian institutions, prayers, devotions, caring for the sick (by not bringing them into the church!), adoration of the Eucharist, customs of the church, and sacred acts of the councils.

This charming edition of decrees was reissued by Bishop Alexander Sigismund and. features an illustrated, engraved title page with small portraits of popes and important church figures along with a city view of (presumably) Augsburg, Germany.
