“There are some so restless that when they are free from labour they labour all the more, because the leisure they they have for thought, the worse interior turmoil they have to bear.”

Gregory the Great

 

Pope Gregory I was one of the most important figures of the establishment and growth of the Catholic Church. His book ‘Regula Pastoralis’ or ‘Pastoral Care’, is a work clearly explaining and describing the responsibilities of the clergy. It is often considered the most influential and important work written on the topic of the role of preachers and ecclesiastical fathers.

 

This highly rare 16th-century printing of ‘Pastoral Care’ is bound with a 1574 printing of the works of Pope Innocent III. Innocent III was best known for his work on asceticism – ‘Wretchedness of Human Condition’ – a work describing the miserable state of the human race. In this book, Innocent notes that the major sins of the world have a direct relationship to the destruction of humanity.
