1594 GRUESOME TORTURE WORK GALLONIO First Latin Edition OCCULT

SS. Martyrum Cruciatibus 1594 printed in Rome by Gallonio. The work is considered one of the main sources on the history of torture, with detailed and realistic illustration of the tortures endured by the martyrs to the origins of Christianity. The first edition appeared in Italian in 1591.

The author, a priest of the Oratory whose press printed this and a few other works, also wrote a history of Roman virgins and several biographies of saints, including St. Philip Neri, the Oratory's founder. This is the most famous of his works and has been reprinted numerous times. The book first appeared in 1591; the copper-plate engravings were engraved by Antonio Tempesta of Firenza after the designs of Giovanni de Guerra, painter to Pope Sixtus V. The book was intended for the “edification of the faithful” and was issued with the approval and authority of the Catholic Church. - Lib-Art.com Adams G162, ISTC 2:16, Brunet 2:1468, Wellcome I:2663, Graesse 3:19, EDIT16cnce: 20225 gorgeous full page engravings.
