Luís de Páramo (born 1545), born in Borox, Toledo, cleric of the Cathedral of León and later inquisitor in Sicily, a position he held when he published this book. In this, the author develops the first chapter of his controversial work Responsum ... adversus oppones ... and seeks, with historical arguments, to legitimise the existence of the Court of the Inquisition. On December 4, 1769, a letter of law from the Royal Mesa Censória expressly forbade and ordered the collection of all editions of the work, as they contain the same maxims as the Bullae de Coena (see Maria Teresa Payan Martins, Literary Censorship in Portugal in the 17th and 18th centuries, Lisbon, 2005, pp. 520-521). Slightly trimmed copy, still maintaining good margins; slight water stains, but generally clean. Face with scratched coeval manuscript (with a little acidity and slight corrosion) and inscription, dated 1760, attesting to the purge according to the Inquisition. Bookplate and blank stamp of the Biblioteca Alfonso Cassuto. Binding from an immediately later period, entirely made of mutton leather, with signs of aging but repairable.
Woodworm damage at the beginning and end, inside the volume is in excellent condition, with crisp and bright paper.

In his famous treatise on the origins and historical development of the Inquisition published in Madrid in 1598, he read the history of the institution in a triumphant and providential light. The first to exercise the inquisitorial office was God himself, when he questioned Adam after the apple was stolen in the garden of Eden. John the Baptist also performed inquisitorial functions, as did Jesus Christ, St. Peter, St. Paul, etc.
