Catalogue Note

Jacobus de Theramo's Consolation of sinners was a popular text, appearing in many editions in different languages (some illustrated) from its first printing in German in 1464; the Latin text was first printed in Augsburg in 1472. It comprises a law suit between the Devil and Jesus about the redemption of Man, in which Jesus wins but the Devil is allowed to take the damned at the Last Judgement.
