More than 4 weeks availability
This is the first comprehensive overview of the work of the most prolific Catholic writer and polemicist in 16th-century France. Pierre Dore was a Dominican and a Doctor of Theology of the Faculty of Theology of the University of Paris, and his career spanned the early period of the Reformation in France. He was unique as a writer of works of devotion and theological polemics in the French language at a time when most of his colleagues wrote only in Latin. The only person whose French works were more frequently edited than Dore's was John Calvin.
Introduction - Pierre Dore's historiographical reputation - Dore's place in the institutional response to the Reformation in France; Dore and the French Dominicans in the early 16th century; an overview of Dore's works; justification, grace, merit and free will; the Eucharist - transubstantiation and "deification"; the virtuous life and Mary its image; conclusion; appendices.
