Author: Irenaeus; Desiderius Erasmus
Publisher: Parisiis, Apud Audoënum Paruum
An uncommon mid 16th century edition of the Most Erudite Work of the great Irenaeus, bishop of Lyons, compiled into five books in which he marvellously uncovers and refutes the impious heresies and portentous beliefs of the ancients, from the collation of the most ancient codices as far as was permitted. The works of Erasmus of Rotterdam have been corrected. A list of things worth observing has been added.
