Description

Engraving of Christ on the cross included in a manuscript entitled Philosophia Universalis Pertinens a Gabrielem Colleno Logicum (1694). Though similar to others in this book, the print does not contain an artist or publisher's mark. Below the image is the text 'Ces Espines, ces cloux, et ce tourment cruel,
Me font bien moins Souffrir qu'un Seul peché mortel' (These thorns, nails, and this cruel torment, make me suffer far less than one mortal sin).

This is a student notebook of Gabriel Collenno, recording the undergraduate course in logic, as taken at the University of Paris. Student notebooks of the time often include printed plates and hand-drawn images as illustrations, sometimes related,sometimes unrelated to the material.
