Fratris Dominici Soto Segobiensis, Theologi, Ordinis Praedicatorum . . . in Epistolam divi Pauli ad Romanos comentarii; Ad sanctum concilium Tridentinum De natura et gratia libri III, cum Apologia contra reverendum Episcopum Catharinum (Antwerp: Johannes Steelsius, 1550) .

The Dominican theologian, Domingo de Soto of Segovia (1494-1560), taught in Salamanca and the Low Countries, travelling back and forth between his native land and its conquered northern provinces. In the bitter disputes of his day concerning nature, grace and free will, he argued against both the Lutherans and the "Pelagians" (i.e., certain Jesuits). His often printed treatise on this subject is printed in this edition by Johannes Steelsius (active 1533-76), along with commentaries on the Epistle of Paul to the Romans. This is the first edition of each work, and one of only two editions of the commentaires on the Epistles of Paul. Apparently, de Soto was esteemed more as a logician and philosopher than as a scriptural commentator (see catalogue n° 70).
