Description: , . . Knuttel 3496; Van der Haar, Schatkamer 298; cf. W.J. op 't Hof, "Willem Teellinck in het licht zijner geschriften (31)", in: Nadere Reformatie XII (1988), p. 109-115. First edition of one of the puritan and edifying works by the reformed minister of Middelburg Willem Teellinck (1579-1629). The title would translate in English as: Zephania's warning, to prevent the destruction of Jerusalem; also fit for the present condition of our dear country.With his many works Teellinck intended to introduce into the Republic the spirit of English pietist Puritanism. On the one hand he tried to stimulate personal piety, on the other hand he levelled criticism at various ethical and religious abuses and errors, and aimed for a complete reform in all areas of life as certainly also in the present work. With his books he has exerted a truly enormous influence on theologians and parishioners of the 17th century alike. Teellinck is therefore generally seen as the father of the influential reformed pietist movement within the Dutch Reformed Church, known as the "Further Reformation".With manuscript annotations and proverbs on the fly-leaves, dated 1770. Some marginal waterstains, otherwise in good condition.
