Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1855 edition. Excerpt: ... All Hallows, Drumcondra, says he did not read Dens when at Maynooth, though he may have looked into it. He adds, --" I have occasionally read portions of it since I left Maynooth, and I consider it a work of very great merit."

But, further, the theology of Peter Dens has been before the public for many years, as one of the best books for the use of the Roman Catholic priests in Ireland.

We find these Resolutions referred to in a publication, "The case plainly stated and proved--of the Papal laws established over Ireland--in a speech delivered to the electors of the University of Dublin," p. 45. An advertisement, announcing a new edition of this work, is given in the quotation below, and indicates the celebrity which attached to "Dens' Theology--"most iMPOBTAirr.--On Monday, 14th May, 1832, R.
