“They say that love and tears are learned without any teacher.”

― Nicolas Caussin

 

Nicolas Caussin was a 17th-century French Jesuit most-known for his treatise “The Holy Court”. This book was a Christian account of the four principal human passions – love, desire, anger, and envy. Caussin wrote this work as an instructional manual intended to teach the proper means of controlling these emotions.

 

While this work is outwardly known as a teaching tool, it also includes accounts of historical significance. According to Lowndes,

“In this work will be found a life of Mary Queen of Scots”

 

Not only does this book discuss the history of English royalty, but Caussin covers the crusades, New Testament history, and early Christianity in the Roman Middle Ages.

 

Translated by Sir Thomas Hawkins, this 1650 English edition is illustrated with 24 impressive engraved portraits of important historical figures such as Constantine, Charlemagne, Clotilda, Pulcheria, Martinus, and many others.
