Detailed
Description
   A lengthy tract arguing for the acceptance of the Jews. In Latin, with many German passages and sporadic Greek.

“Reasons which ought to compel lawmakers to tolerate and treat the Jews well are: Divine law, natural law…, and by example of the laws of many other races and peoples…; and finally the ridiculousness which would thence follow, if they (the Jews) are not tolerated but rather are completely excluded from the society and interaction of the Christians” (p. [4]).
