Opuscula aurea theologica

Sacred Congregation of the Propagation of the Faith
Peter Arcudius (1563-1633) was a Corfu-born Catholic priest who compiled this collection of patristic texts, Opuscula aurea theologica, a reprint of an early edition of 1639. The Corfu connection is intriguing. The bookplate on the front endpaper belongs to Frederick North, 5th Earl of Guilford (1766-1827), who, in 1824, established the Ionian Academy on Corfu. On opening day, this first University established in modern Greece, had 47 students and three faculties: Law, Medicine, and Philosophy. North died in 1827; three years later his library was dispersed.
