*** An attractive sammelband of three scarce works. Roselli's treatise discusses the powers of the papacy and it's relationship with the General Council and in so doing defends the primacy of the papacy. His doctrine was refuted by the Dominican Henricus Institoris in 1499 in the second work present here.
