De Statu Mortuorum et Resurgentium Tractatus. (Of the state of the dead and of those that are to rise)
by Thomas Burnet, 1728
Book Condition : Very Good

Gorgeously rebound London imprint of Burnet's classic examination of eschatology in the original Latin. Thomas Burnet (1635?-1715) was Head of Clare Hall, Cambridge, and later of the Charterhouse. He wrote several books of speculative cosmogony.

In "De Statu mortuorum" Burnet discourses on the nature of the soul and its middle state between death and resurrection. Spiritual bodies, angels, visions, apparitions etc. are all discussed. Burnet argues against the endlessness of punishment in the afterlife.
